I am new to After Effects and am building a "grid" of video clips in AE. In order to do this I either have to scale down the image, or move them back along the Z axis to fit them all on to the screen... HOWEVER, when I do this and import it into Final Cut Pro, (all settings match) I am making moves, zooming in and zooming out, etc.. and the quality is terrible. Everything is pixelated... Is there a better way to create this grid while keeping the quality of the individual videos as high as possible? What am I doing wrong? Thank you for your input.
I'm interpreting your post to mean that you are making the animation in AE, but when you bring the footage back to FCP, it's pixelated.
How are you getting the footage out of AE? What render settings and what output module? Are you working in an interlaced video format in Final Cut?
