Video loses quality on After Effects
on Jan 20, 2017 at 8:03:35 pm

Hello everybody! I have an issue with 3ds max videos rendered with VRAY. I make the videos on 3ds max and I edit them on After Effects. When I render the video on 3ds max I use this settings:



And It comes out with a great quality:



But when I edit and render it, It loses the quality:



I don't know what's going on! The settings for AE are these:



Can anyone help me with this? I want to keep its original quality! Thank you!

So you already exported HD footage from 3D max, but after editing in AE you get the low quality outcome?
If so, can you screenshot your After effects render settings? make sure the quality is at best

I would try rendering with a different video codec from 3DS Max. What are your choices?

Check your After Effects bit depth settings--if they're at 8-bit, bump to 16 or 32. Banding like that could be due to lower project bit depth.

Where can I see the bit depth settings? I'm sorry about the question :P

What are your export settings in AE?

Hi Jorge, the bit depth setting is at the bottom of your Project Panel next to the trashcan , alt-click to cycle through or click on the number and a popup will appear.
