Scaling track matted text

Please bear with me, as I'm trying to not word this too confusingly. I'm working on a mock-70s style TV intro wherein my text flips to a transparent layer (on top of a black solid) which then reveals the video beneath. The solid layer then scales up (zooms in) which leaves behind the full-screen video. I've taken a text layer, then track matted using "Create Shapes From Layer," and then assigned the black solid (background) to that layer (Alpha Inverted Matte). I've embedded that composition into a master comp which scales up. The animation and result are great, but the problem I'm having is that the transparent matte is pixelated as it scales, whereas the other text layers maintain sharp edges. Am I doing this properly? Is there a way to create shapes from a layer while maintaining the vector? Sorry if this sounds confusing, but any help you can give me would be great! Thanks!
