So I'm rendering out a earth animation and I keep getting basically what looks like a grid of white dots ontop of the image...

I can't figure out what's going on. Rendered out all multi-pass to see if one layer was doing it.. it's not. I put my anti-aliasing at best. render @ 1920x1080

There's really no need to put on AO or GI ... which might fix the problem but add to render time. I was also thinking it could be the texture i used for the earth, but the dots bleed into the 'space" area as well...

Looks like stars. You're not using the physical sky object, are you?

Using a sky object with starts yes, not physical render though.

It's weird, when it comes straight out of Cinema in the Picture Viewer you don't notice the pattern, but when I bring it into AE and start compositing it is there. Made linear workspace... dunno

So I figured out it was the 'glow' and 'object glow' that is giving me the issue when bringing into AE. When I turn off the layers it is gone, but I lose my glow effects :/ any fix?

Hmm, I can't think what's causing it off hand. Are you rendering to 16 or 32 bit files? If not I would try rendering to at least 16 bits.
