    Multi-Frame Rendering is now available in After Effects public beta. We’re starting with Render Queue export, and will add support for preview, AME, MOGRTs and beyond in subsequent releases.

    This is a significant update to the After Effects architecture. Unlike older versions that rendered multiple frames by creating copies of the application, this is true multithreaded rendering. The render pipeline has been optimized from end to end, enabling After Effects to use your system to its full potential.

    We know how important rendering faster is to you. That’s why we’ve taken the time to do this right, and build a strong, high-performance foundation for the future. We appreciate your patience, and would love to hear how Multi-Frame Rendering is working on your hardware and with your projects.

    You can learn more about this multi-year effort here: https://blog.adobe.com/en/publish/2021/03/10/multi-frame-rendering-now-in-after-effects-beta.html

    Update: Whilst it flew through 66% it crashed mid way, and got stuck. Only notices after I came back after 20 minutes and it was all stuck at the same time and progress, and the cores were all empty of activity. :(

    As someone who is currently working on a pretty big project atm. Native artwork is 4000px x 4000px, then downscaled to different resolutions. AE standard latest release takes 80Minutes per 15 second export. It's pretty hefty. This morning I ran the same export though the BETA with multi frame. SO AMAZING to see every core on my 16 core 192gb ram Mac Pro 7,1 finally work. Still rendering, but I see a huge improvement here.

    Wow almost a year on. A few updates but the fundamental performance on Mac Is shameful.

    The issue is i’d say 100% of customers want better performance. I as a Mac user feel like adobe have massively neglected this customer base: the performance with ever increasing system power and core count has never utilised such things. Given the release of the new Mac Pro and the incredible power, AE doesn’t utilise the cores/cpu or indeed the GPU. It seems from an outsiders point of view way more effort on adobe’s account has gone into performance enhancement with Nvidia and windows. As a paying customer It’s frustrating. Never seems like any real improvement in performance. No enhancements really over the lifetime of the last Mac Pro and that had beasty Gpu’s and 12 cores, yet never managed to touch any of the kit. It’s always a promise to be looked into, something you’re working on but never seems to deliver. I was a big fan of multi threading and then it disappeared. Sure it had flaws but it offered some improvement. Other developers like render garden are able to allbeit not very well give us some help, so why is this a. Taking so blooming long, and b. Not that important? Customers feel like you’re resting on your laurels. You’ve got the adobe customers trapped because there is little else in terms of competition or indeed other offerings close to AE. But that isn’t good enough.

    Under Review  ·  Reg Santo Tomas responded

    As Wes noted, we are looking at many areas for optimization and have made strides in the last few releases already.

    We recognize there are still many areas to improve performance and we are investing in appropriate areas.

    Threads that are catch-alls are often non-actionable. Please keep giving us specific feedback on what workflows are slow for you.

    Technical solutions may not always be as obvious as some people may be suggesting as the application architecture is often very different than people’s conception.

    Short answer. Yes, we want to and will make it faster.

    Lots of comments on this. Yet no update since 2018?!
