After Effects Guide with Super Renders Farm

It is very easy to create a test render job with After Effects on Super Renders Farm

You just do as the following steps


1. Prepare the project

This step is very important to render successfully on our farm.

Open your project in After Effects and prepare it for rendering here

  • Make sure that your project does not contain any missing assets. 

Every missing asset will increase job render time and can cause problems with rendering.

Note: Video assets - please be cautious when using MOV assets in your project. We recommend using image sequence as often as possible because that is the most reliable solution based on our experience.

  • Prepare your desired composition settings - resolution, frame rate and duration time.

When rendering to frames, we strongly recommend using round numbers (i.e 30 frames per second instead of 29.97).


Composition settings


  • Select composition and add it to AE render queue.

Our system will prepare and send only the compositions added to AE render queue. Any other compositions which are used in the scene will be ignored.



             Adding a composition to render queue


             Fill on the exact name of composition on add new render job form

  • Configure “render queue” composition setup i.e render settings, quality, output format.


Note: Output formats - not all of the output formats are supported on our farm.

We highly recommend using standard output presets.

It could be better if you can render your composition to an image sequence (i.e. PNG or JPG sequence) and ideally rendering a composition to frames instead of video. As we currently not support rendering .mp4/.mov format, or video in general well. 

2. Upload the projects

There are some ways to upload your files to our farm

Please take a look at here for more detailed

3. Start Rendering

After your project is uploaded, you will need to

Click on your scene file -> Submit render jobs (with some parameter configurations via Add New Render Job Form)-> Start rendering

4. Download

when your render job completed. Let's wait for your outputs to be transferred to your shared Folder 

Connect to your Google Drive or Dropbox to get your render output files.
