Setting the EPS Options

As long as you're getting familiar with the Interpret Footage dialog box, there's one more option to explore—and that's, well, Options. The Options button gives you access to an EPS Options dialog box, which allows you to control the rasterization method used for EPS images. You can choose between a fast but lower-quality method and a slower but more accurate method. To learn more about rasterization, see the “Rasterization” sidebar in Chapter 5.

To set the EPS Options:

1.
In the Project window, select an EPS footage item (Figure 2.98).

Choose File > Interpret Footage > Main, or press Cmd-F (Mac) or Ctrl-F (Windows).

The Interpret Footage dialog box appears (Figure 2.99).

4.
In the EPS Options dialog box, choose either of the following options (Figure 2.100):

Faster— If you choose this option, After Effects will rasterize the footage more quickly but won't be able to represent smooth edges and color gradients as accurately.

More Accurate— If you choose this slower method you're less likely to have rough or hard edges on objects, and color banding in gradients.

Click OK to close the dialog box.
