Circles with jagged edges using 3D orientation

I have some coloured circles I would like to animate the Orientation. When I make them 3D layers to do this the edges go jagged so they don't look very good. Any ideas how I can keep them smooth?

 

Thank you!!

Your post isn't really useful, since you haven't told us anything about how the circle is actually created. Is it a shape layer? Some effect? An imported graphic? You need to be more specific. That and of course screenshots are better than describing the smell of invisible flatulence...

I've attached a screen of the circles with smooth edges and another screen of the circles with jagged edges. They switch to jagged when the layer is switched to a 3d layer. The cirlces were imported from Illustrator and converted to outlines. I was aiming to experiment with the 3d orientation of the circles.

Some of the other layers which are hidden here have wiggle effect.

 

Thanks Mylenium, I hope that helps.

Looks like there is some conversion issue with the paths not getting enough intermediate points similar to AI's crappy DXF/ DWG export making a mess of things. If it's an option, you might consider rebuilding the shapes from scratch using parametric circles in AI. Otherwise subdividing the paths in AI should give better results.

Thank you Mylenium. By parametric do you mean building a circle with multiple edges?

 

I guess I could try with AE circles as well.

 

Cheers!
