Chapter 15. Complex Projects > Collapsing Transformations

Collapsing Transformations

Sometimes the render order in nested compositions can cause image resolution to degrade. This is because transform properties, such as Scale, are calculated at every tier in the project hierarchy: first in the most deeply nested composition, then the next, and so on. At each level, the image is rasterized—that is, its resolution is defined, then redefined in successive compositions.

Scaling down an image in a nested composition rasterizes the image at the smaller size and, consequently, at a lower resolution (Figure 15.40 and Figure 15.41). Because the smaller image becomes the source for successive compositions, scaling it up again makes the reduced resolution more apparent (Figure 15.42).
