I'm taking position data from C4D in to AE (via .aec file) so I can do some Particular stuff.

I was getting jagged paths so I increased the subframe sampling from linear to exact- still jagged.

I thought having more keyframes would help so I upped my C4D project to 96fps and brought in a new .aec into my AE project. I did have 4 times the keyframes (4 keyframes per frame), but I was still getting jagged lines.

Has anyone run into the before?

Thanks for your help!

You might try using a smooth() expression on the position of the layer driving particular or on the emitter position itself.

Never knew about smoothing. Nifty trick.

However, it didn't seem to affect the particles. Initially the particles curve nicely because of the high subframe sampling. Then, as the particles continue to move (due to the inherit velocity function) the line starts to look steppy.

I've run into the before, but never found a solution. I usually try to hide it by using a higher velocity and turbulence, but it would be great to find a real solution.
