AE CS5: My Illustrator map is totally blurry after applying CC Sphere

Please see these screen grabs.
Please download the images to see them full size.

I have a vector map of the world that I created in Adobe Illustrator for a documentary about World War I.

But when I wrap my map around the "CC Sphere" to create a globe, any dolly in/zoom in/scale up causes the borders of the states to become totally blurry. This DOESN'T happen when the map is in 2D. Notice that in the screen grab "MAP-SHARP BORDERS" I have upscaled my map to 700% and it remains tack sharp because it's a vector map. So why isn't this the case after applying the CC Sphere effect?

Am I even using the right plug-in??? I thought that CC Sphere was the way to go to wrap a map round a globe. But I want to be able to zoom in without getting a blurry image. Even though I have "continuously rasterize" turned on, it doesn't seem to work with CC Sphere.

Thanks in advance for any help on this issue.

CC Sphere has to rasterize the artwork to use it -- so if you want a close-up zoom, you have to feed CC Sphere a much larger comp.

Double or quadruple the size of the MAP precomp that you're applying CC Sphere to.
