I am very new to After Effects (CS3). I have a video i am trying to get to render but its keeps doing all kinds of crazy stuff. The first component is VERY grainy and poor resolution but all the rest are fine....any suggestions? The fade in and outs (done with opacity) are grainy also...??? Im getting some sections of the video that are all stutter and the raw video is not like that at all???? The computer is a new Lenovo W540 with an I7 proc and 16 gig of RAM. I guess my biggest question is about settings in the render queue??? what should i use? any ideas on where to go? T Thanks in advance!
