[dean chapman]"It looks like AI files import at 1.00 aspect ratio. I've tried a few things, but always end up with a jagged looking logo when i drop it into my video comp."
Relax. There's nothing wrong.
It's just that AE, having been born in 1991 as a square-pixel-only application, doesn't have the best faculties to deal with non-square pixel aspect ratios while you work in your comps.
It renders everything just fine; it simply wants you to cut it some slack in the comp window. In the comp window there is a pixel aspect ratio compensation toggle switch at the bottom; I think it has a couple of arrows on either end. One way, 16x9 stuff looks squeezed horizontally, but smooth. The other way, everything's in 16x9, but jagged-looking.
It will render in 16x9, plus it will be nice 'n smooth. It's one of those things in AE you have to take as an article of faith.
