Quick Overview

Render Up to 3x Faster on the Same Machine - If You Work in After Effects, You Need This Script!

Description

Details

Manufacturer Part Number: RENDERG

RenderGarden is an Adobe After Effects script that splits your comp into a specified number of segments (which we refer to as seeds) and then renders them to multiple background command line windows (which we call, Gardeners). Through segmenting the comp into multiple seeds, you can fully maximize your CPU cores on a single machine or across multiple machines with network rendering.

INCREASED RENDER SPEEDS

  • Render 2-3x faster with Hyper-threaded Rendering.
  • Maximize your Mac or PCs CPU usage.
  • Render multiple frames simultaneously.
  • Render multiple comps in sequence or in parallel.

NETWORK RENDERING

  • Grid multiple computers together on your network.
  • Render QuickTime/AVI Movies or Image Sequences.
  • Hyper-threaded Rendering supported on each render node.
  • Easy to set up. No custom scripting or network config.
  • Unlimited Render Node licensing.

BACKGROUND RENDERING

  • Continue working in After Effects while your comps render in the background.
  • Option for Post-Render transcoding to MP4 and/or QT.
  • Render multiple comps in sequence or in parallel.

Your Purchase Includes:

  • After Effect Script for submitting renders to RenderGarden
  • Gardener Application (this automatically picks up RenderGarden file and renders them in the background).

If you are looking to setup multiple computers as render nodes, you dont need to make another purchase for each additional machine. You can just install the Gardener application for free!

FAQ

1. Is there a possibility to render to frames using RenderGarden plugin (i.e. png or tiff) or does it support only Mp4/QT?

Yes. The primary render is set in the AE Render Queue and can use QT, AVI or Image Sequences. The Post-Render Actions set in the RenderGarden script can be used to then transcode the master QT, AVI, or Image Sequence into an mp4 or QT for a viewing copy.

2. If I want to use another machine as a node in network rendering does it need to have all external plugins as I hve on initial machine? I.e. Particular from Red Giant or Optical flares form Video Copilot?

Yes. Every render node needs licensed plug-ins, fonts, etc. A good rule of thumb is that the render node should be able to open the AE project and render it on its own. Some plug-ins give you free render nodes. Others require additional render licenses. After Effects can run in Render-Only mode which does not require you to be signed into a CC account.

3. If I would buy and install this plugin on sich machine would it make much difference in render time?

The license gives you one submit script and unlimited render nodes. So you only need to install the Gardener app on the render nodes which is free. Spawning more than one Gardener on each render node will increase rendering time over native AE 2-3x on average. So on a single machine you can see a 3x speed increase, and if you throw a second machine on it you can see a 6x increase. Your 24CPU system will love RenderGarden.

4. The most important question - If I use the plugin do I have to render via AE RenderQueue and thus block my AE during the render time or does it do the rendering in the background so I can simultanously work in AE and render in the background?

RenderGarden works in the background so you can continue working.
