Is there a way to mimic this in After Effects?







The way the anti-aliasing on the character seems to give it a very jittery old-school look. I was thinking perhaps something to do with pixellation, or perhaps turning the anti-aliasing very low somehow?

Any thoughts or comments would be awesome :)

Hm, guess not, lmao!

Well, it was worth a shot, eh?

It's actually not that tough to make it look low-res -- work in low-resolution AE comp, then nest it in a comp in the resolution you need to deliver. Turn the layer quality switch to draft, or AE will make the edges soft-looking.

The tough part is building the 3D animation.

I can do the 3d animation, so that's no problem at all. I used to play this game a long time ago, and was going to make a tribute of sorts by getting the old DOS pixel-jumping look. I turned off the anti-alias in the 3d app I'm using, but I noticed from checking on gameplay vids on Youtube that it is more of good ol' DOS display or something. It normally looked ok on a smaller window, but if I made it full screen it had this nostalgic jittery look to it.
