Guys, what is the best downscale method for you? When I downscale 1920×1080 to 640×360 in after effects, image is little blurry, with sharp effect its little better…
What is the best downscale method, to keep all sharp edges on texts, graphics, etc… ?
You don’t have any choice of the interpolation algorithm used in AE, so the only thing you can do is unsharp mask / sharpen it afterwards (which I find really ugly).
If you take it into Nuke, Shake, Fusion, then you’ll have the usual choice of filters:
box, sinc, lanczos, mitchell, gaussian etc.
Personally, I prefer the soft look to the sharpened variety anyway. I can spot digital sharpening a mile off with my good eye closed. And it looks cheap.
