After Effects: Installation¶
If Adobe After Effects is installed on the system, DuME is able to render and encode After Effects Compositions.
Before these compositions can be rendered, some presets need to be created inside After Effects. This operation has to be done only once for each version of After Effects you want to use.
A small script is provided with DuME to make this first installation easy.
Using the provided script¶
1- Launch the version of After Effects you want to use with DuME.
2- Run the script via
File/Scripts/Run Script File.... The script is located in the After Effects folder where you have installed DuME.
If for some reason this script does not work or you cannot use it, follow these steps in the rendere queue:
1- Select the “Lossless” output module. Set its format to
OpenEXR Sequence, and the channels to RGB+Alpha. Leave all other options to their default values. Save this new module as “DuEXR”.
2- Select the “Lossless” output module. Set its format to
WAV, and the audio options to
96,000Hz / 32 bit / Stereo. Save this new module as “DuWAV”.
3- Select the “Best” render settings. and check the “Skip existing files” box. Save these new settings as “DuMultiMachine”.
4- Select the “Best” render settings. Save these settings as “DuBest”.
