First off, I'm going to check the canvas size, and one of things I want to do is set this to Pixels. Now I find odd pixels to be problematic. It's going to offset things and could lead to subpixel resampling over in After Effects. So I am going to make this a nice even number there for the height and crop off a couple of pixels. That's looks good.
