After Effects Renders looking pixelated in FinalCut
on Aug 25, 2014 at 3:08:58 pm

Hi Everyone, I have a question about my After Effects renders looking pixelated when brought up in Final Cut.

I am rendering a comp with Alpha using these setting : 1920x1080 29.97 square pixel ..codec:Animation
Editor's Final Cut settings are: 1920x1080 29.97 frame rate square pixel ..no field dominance ..export codec is apple prores 422

Could any please tell which other codec can I use that will export alpha channels and will not make renders look pixelated in Final Cut?

I have also come across this problem. Fixed it by calling up Item Properties on the AE render after importing into FCP and checking the field dominance, in my case it said Upper (Odd) even the the render was 422 progressive. Right click on the Field Dominance and change it to None, then try bringing the clip into your edit sequence. Pixelated look should be gone. Don't ask me why or how! As far as I can see it might be the way FCP is flagging and interpreting the file rather than being an issue with the AE render. Hope this helps!
