I work at a fixed rate of (PAL) 1080i50. So I now have to make graphics at 25fps. This now really eliminates that smooth look when the graphic is in motion.

Is there anyway I can make the graphic run smoother still at 25fps. Maybe a technique used in after effects?

I can't run my graphics at 50fps or 60fps because when on final output via a ATEM TVS set to 1080i50 or HD TV, the graphic jerks, etc.

I'm running After Effects CS6 on a Macbook.

Thanks.

Make the graphic move slower/add motion blur.

This is an issue faced by EVERYONE who delivers interlaced files. You get used to it. People have done it for quite a few decades. It's no big deal.

If you want the nice, smooth look of a higher frame rate on your computer for your own peace of mind, work at 50p. Then for delivery, nest it in a 25fps comp and render interlaced.
