Hi everyone,

 

Having an issue regarding the dynamic link between Premiere Pro and After Effects.

All my dynamic links show a loss in quality. I've attached several screenshots below to illustrate my point. 

I'm unsure if my settings are incorrect or what the issue may be.

All the detail on the bricks, stones, fingers, etc. become soft and fuzzy.

And the curtains in the last screenshot become extremely pixelated and unusable.

All the clips have gone through color/sharpening in Davinci Resolve so this is a very frustrating issue.

Does anyone know what the issue may be?

Ran several export tests, realized that after export they are identical!

Can you explain us step by step how do you export it, if you can upload screenshots to see what container and codec are you using.

First off, No DL stands for No Dynamic Link, and DL is with the Dynamic Link.

The first batch are scaled into the clip by 325% and the #2 batch are scaled in by over 600%.

You can see the names of the clips in the lower left of each scrreenshot.

 

Ran a Standard Export, H.264, Render Maximum Bit Depth and Quality. 3840x1600 and VBR 2 Pass, 50-70.

Pushed them all through Encoder.

 

Quick note, on my timeline, the dynamic links only got the fuzzy look when I "Rendered Selection". Prior to that, they looked like any other clip. 

 

Obviously, the exports aren't as tack sharp as what's in my timeline, but I wouldn't expect a 100% lossless export.

And what's the difference if you set up both (DL and not DL) to 100%? How do they look? All pixel graphics that you set up to more than 100% it gonna they see with a distortion.

anyone ever get to the bottom of this?

 

I'm having the same problem but with gfx - edges coming through into premier crisp, but when I rescale (downwards weirdly enough) the edges get all raggedy and low-res looking and carries through to the export. I've ahd it happen with text also, almost always when I resize the DL clip within Premier.
