See here the first rendered image (Cycles engine). You can notice that the background does not look very pixelated at all. This quality is fine:

However, in my renders (same Cycles engine, same render ... just some frames later), in subsequent frames, the background (and everything else) suddenly becomes very pixelated:

I hope this question can be answered. I have not found any other answers on this website, because this question does not relate to fireflies, and the render dimensions stay the change.

    $\begingroup$ It looks like video compression artifact. That's almost impossible to avoid with the codec you use (divx). You can try a more efficient codec like H264. $\endgroup$ – thibsert Feb 2 at 8:51

As @thibsert implied, it seems to be the video-codec which creates the problems. If you change it to e.g. H.264 the problem is solved.

  • $\begingroup$ @Yohello1, Why? $\endgroup$ – Vincent Mia Edie Verheyen Feb 3 at 21:04
  • $\begingroup$ Just because it's more supported (from why I know ) $\endgroup$ – Yohello 1 Feb 4 at 15:54
