Vector pixelization in 3D

Illustrator Vector element and 3D camera work.

Here's the problem, I'm using a vector based illustration and then using a moving camera in after effects. When I render it out my nice crisp edges are all pixelated and it looks like crap.

Suggestion for getting vector art to stay sharp when using 3D camera movement in AE 6.5

Thumbs up

I found a solution for this problem. There is a feature added in AE 6.5 called continuous rasterization. You can toggle it in the modes/switches menu. Simply put it rasterized the vector art sharply every frame and keeps it crisp. Takes a little while to render and preview however, so keep it off while you're working.

Yummy vector art!
