Importing vector graphic into After effects goes fuzzy :-(

Hi from amazingly not raining and windy York Uk :-)

The above links illustrates my problem but here goes...

My goal was to animate a clients vector logo so my process was to open the .eps file in illustrator, release its layers and import into After Effects. I made sure the illustrator file set up / configuration was set to HDTV 1080.

But when the file was imported into after effect i notice when i scaled up / expanded one of the letters the definition goes soft :-( Its as if the vector quality has been lost.

I am so confused as to why this may be happening and its important the imported .eps file retains its vector qualities in After Effects so i can expand elements without looking so / pixelated.

Any insights welcome :-)
Grazie mille,
David

Easy: toggle on the layer's Continuously Rasterize switch. It's the icon that looks like a little sun.

Continuously Rasterize takes on a different persona in 3D -- it becomes Collapse Transformations, and you'll want to read up on that.
