Low Photoshop files quality in After Effects
on Apr 11, 2013 at 2:47:34 pm

Hi
I have a trouble with picture quality when working in After
Effects.
When I create a new comp in AE sized 1024 x 576 and use
PSD file sized 2912x4368 px, the picture appears pixelated.

I noticed that when I choose bigger composition size eg
1920x1080, using the same big PSD file (2912x4368 px), the
quality comes up much better than on 1024x576 comp size.
What is the relation between image size in pixels, to the size
of the composition in AE?
What is the best comp size to work with in AE?
I was advised to use 1024 x 576 as it’s the industry standard
apparently. My PSD file work only in 1920x1080 though and
I’m worried that I’m doing something wrong here.

Thanks in advance for any help

Kuba

Scaling (whether scaling up or scaling down) loses quality.

If you are using a large PSD file and scaling it down in After Effects, you should instead be preparing the file in Photoshop so that it's the size that you need in After Effects.

Are you viewing the composition at 100% magnification?
