Hi,

for a project I need to zoom into an image, till one pixel covers
the whole size of the video. the problem so far, the issue is known
here, is that the edges turn blurry since after effects uses an
interpolation algorithm other than the "nearest neighbour" which
would perfectly suite my needs. an easy work-around such as interpolating
the image in PS isn't working out since the image becomes to large
- i'm getting the "image allocation buffer issue" error message
which till that point i wasn't able to solve.
The draft method however results in a general shakiness of the image,
the zoom isn't smooth any more. I'm aware of the possibility to use several
images lining them up etc., but is there no convenient way to realise that
issue - i.e. to tell after effects to use another interpolation algorithm,
or a third party plug-in that does the job?
any help is appreciated. thanks in advance!

You can turn the layer to draft quality to prevent the interpolation/anti-aliasing.

See "Layer image quality and subpixel positioning".

How about duping the layer, setting the upper one to draft, and animating its opacity from 0 to 100 as you zoom in?
