I have been rendering AE animations through Adobe Media Encoder for awhile now, but I'll admit I don't know the technical aspects of the application very well (i.e. effects, presets, bitrate, etc). I never really needed to know since the process was always easy and straightforward, and I never had any issues. I'd add my composition to AME, choose the destination and rename the file, and hit render. I never messed with the format or video settings, and it was alway set to H.264. However, out of nowhere, whenever I render something (I never touched the settings), the .mp4 file looks horrendous. It's glitchy, the aliasing is the worst I've seen in any .mp4 file, and the animation is skippy and irregular, not smooth.
I've attached a screenshot of my render settings. If anyone could tell me how to solve this issue I would really appreciate it. I need to get back to my normal workflow ASAP!

Your Target Bitrate seems to be very low. Increasing that should give you better quality. Change the Target Bitrate to 10 and report back.
Wow, had the same issue and it's been Buffon me for months now. Thanks for solving this problem, I really appreciate this.
