I render my footage with Full Frames (Uncompressed), the gradients are sharp. Turning on Rendering with OpenGL make them softer, but I can't use blending.

How can I render my footage with really best quality?
Thanks for advice.

What Codec/Format are you rendering too.
What aspect ratio?

Hmm weird.....
Have you tried rendering out to different formats?
Is your workspace file, just content created in Combustion, or are you layering over Captured/Digitized Footage?

I use footages created in Max or high-resolution bitmaps...

thanks :)

Hmm at this point all i can say is its tough to try and Judge specific quality settings when using Combusiton with 3DSMax.
settings, some times Depend on the operators and Layers in yer scene and there isnt a quick "check this button" for Super quality.
So without being over your shoulder its hard to give you incite as to what path to take.
General Rules:
Check Codec
Check Renders from Max
Check Output settings for 2D
Check Output settings for 3D
If your using Max renders Outpt to TGA from Max do not create a AVI
IF its a bug wait for combustion 2 service pack 1 , which will be available for download
