Need your comments on video resolution

Hi all

I have rendered a video from After Effects at half resolution and now I am not happy with the results.

Here is the link:

I rendered it within After Effects and chose half resolution of my original 720x480px composition. Frame rate was 29.97 square pixels. Output file type was FLV with it's default settings. I am still trying to figure out the way to see content of design elements clearly which has not been achieved so far while sending output file at half resolution.I mean you cannot read the text on images moving across the screen due to poor resolution or may be due to some mistake in rendering setting.

Also note that keyframe interpolation method is linear and not "ease ease" because I wanted to have constant speed of images moving from right to left.

Thanks for your time.

Your video is marked private, so we can't see it.

Rendering at half-resolution will clobber small detail (like type).

Why are you rendering it at half resolution?
Also, why are you using AE to do the compression into FLV?

I'd suggest rendering a lossless, full resolution file from AE and using the Adobe Media Encoder to do the compression to FLV.
