    Hi folks! A quick update to let you know that three new Multi-Frame Rendering features went live in the After Effects public beta (18.4×37 and later) earlier this week:

    • Speculative Preview: When AE is idle (you’re checking your email, grabbing a coffee or even just browsing effects), it will render your timeline in the background so you’re ready to preview when you get back.
    • Multi-Frame Rendering in Adobe Media Encoder Beta: Enable MFR in the AE Beta and export in the background up to 3x faster.
    • Render notifications on desktop, iOS and Android: AE can let you know when it’s done no matter where you are via the Creative Cloud app. (Fun bonus: notifications will even work on your smartwatch!)

    Here’s a link with more info on each feature:
    https://community.adobe.com/t5/after-effects-beta/multi-frame-rendering-is-here-aka-the-multithreading-you-ve-been-asking-for/m-p/12131175#M925

    Let us know how things are working for you on the beta forums. And stay tuned for more Multi-Frame Rendering…

    Resolve is excellent. But it only replaces Premiere. If you’re a compositor only, Fusion is the way to go (or Nuke, etc but then you wouldn’t be here). There isn’t a replacement for After Effects yet.

    Thanks Antoine. I hadn't seen the list. I wouldn't say almost all of them got ported. I mean Curves and Levels aren't. Neither is Lumetri which was borrowed from Premiere. I think maybe 2 effects on the project I tested with were MFR compatible. I'll continue to wait as always, haha.

    Tried this out. With the project we tried across three computers we ran about the exact same times. It turns out hardly any of the effects are optimized for multicore rendering—including things like Invert, Levels, Hue/Sat, etc. So if you're using any plugins, you might not notice any improvements. I get that it's beta, but what is there to test?

    Hi John! Maybe it's the combo with sampleImage?

    L = thisComp.layer("Controller").effect("Layer Control")("Layer");
    L.sampleImage(position,[5,5],true);

    Thanks for getting back to me. Sorry for the delay on my end!

    This might be just a problem with frames display vs timecode. Someone suggested I swap, and I did. Now it even works properly when I swap back to frames.

    Same here on macOS 10.13.6

    It doesn't happen on simpler comps, but if you let AE render to the end of a range that doesn't have the last frame already cached, it instantly quits.
