Hi, I'm doing a comp in After effects that's resolution is that of Red 4k (4096x2304). I made an overlay to put on top of it and it'd a .PSD file. The file is the same res as the comp, but when I birng it into the comp, it gets slightly pixelated. When I go into the layout view however, the image is nice and crisp and the right size. What am i doing wrong? I would think continuous rasterization would fix it, but it won't let me enable that in the comp. Thanks for any help you can offer.

Do you have aspect ratio correction turned on in your comp window? If so, don't worry about the pixelization, it's probably due to that. Try rendering out a small section of your comp and see how it looks. If it's due to the aspect ratio correction, the badness will only be in the preview window and it'll look fine in the final render.

Can't tell if the aspect ratio box is checked, because I'm rendering out (had to show to the director). What has rendered out so far of the overlay is pixelated however.

If it's rendering pixelated, the aspect ratio correction isn't the problem.

What is the pixel aspect ratio of your comp and what is the pixel aspect ratio of the Photoshop file?

Do you have the quality switch on the Photoshop layer set to "draft" by any chance?

Turns out I had openGL on. When I turned that off everything became much clearer.

Thanks for the help though.

Gosh dang it! The one time I neglect to mention OpenGL as one of the usual suspects, it's the thing causing the problem... Oh well, I'll add this to the list of odd behaviors of OpenGL
