After Effects Rendering

Drop or open an After Effects project on the input side of DuME.


The framerate is not (yet) detected by DuME, don’t forget to set it manually.

There are two ways to choose which composition will be rendered: either set the exact composition name, or add the composition to the render queue in After Effects, and set the index of the render queue item in DuME.


A quick way to do this is to make sure the render queue in After Effects is empty, then add the composition you want to render. DuME automatically renders the first (and only in this case) item in the queue.

You can also use DuME to render the whole queue, but in this case DuME cannot automatically transcode the result to other formats.

You have the option to use several threads at once when rendering After Effects projects, but be careful as this may not work correctly if the number of threads is too high, especially with projects needing a lot of memory.
