So I have some footage that I made within after effects (particles), and then rendered it out.
Now I imported the footage into After effects in a different project file, because it is apart of a compilation of videos. However, when I render the footage out, the imported footage is slightly less quality, despite I am using the lossless setting in the render queue. When I open the footage in quicktime, it is as crisp as ever, but once the footage is imported into after effects and rerendered, it becomes slightly pixelated.
Why could this be? It is very annoying and any feedback would be great, thanks!
