I am new to AE, when I import any footage into the project it is very small and when I zoom in or reset aspect ratios it is extremely pixelated and blurry. I want my footage to fit the size of the window like I see in all of the tutorials. The footage is in quicktime format, and is normal fitting size when I watch it in Quicktime, iMovie or Final Cut.
I am hoping/assuming this is an easy fix since I am a rookie w/the program...
Did you also check in the player control window to see if the RAM preview settings are set to full resolution?
Also posting a screen grab of your desktop with AE open and a movie imported and opened in a comp may provide some insight to us.
