Video slows down when a lot is going on - After Effects

Hey gang,

I'm exporting a video and during certain moments, video playback seems to lag.

the video is 6 seconds long -





during the explosion, its noticeably slower.

Here are my composition settings: http://unlikelyheroesstudios.com/compisition_settings.jpg

What are your render settings and output module settings---especially what format and codec?

set to best settings / lossless.

i checked out that link as well - about after effects being the in between program and not meant for playback. I converted the avi output file into wmv to see if media player would still have the slowdown (it did), and the youtube upload still had it as well. Didn't see if it was in Sony Vegas if i used it. I guess i was trying to get it w/o the slow-down before it got into Vegas.

Any idea if I should mess w/ it in that program or is it a render setting issue?

Don't use Lossless export for YouTube. Use the YouTube encoding presets in Adobe Media Encoder.

well youtube upload was more of a test to see if it'd fix on conversion - and a way to make it so you guys could see what I'm talking about. Ideally i'd go into Sony Vegas and export from there.

sorry if this is basic stuff guys, and thanks again for your help :)
