I created a page turn book in lightwave with photos textured for each page. I output the 360 frames as individual .png and then exported the individual frames to After Effects (and DFX) for compositing and video output. The individual frames are crystal clear and look really sharp. However, when I put them together in my AE or DFX+ I get visible banding of the gradient on solid color pages, and the rest of the pictures (video) is not even close to the sharpness of the individual .png files. Am I missing something on outputting these as videos? I have tried them as .avi and as .mov and have same problem on both. Anyone able to help me get a good output quality on my videos?
