Quick Overview

The AE Benchmark plugin and website have been discontinued due to the plugin not meeting both the communities' and our own standards. Due to a variety of unforeseen reasons, AEB was not a reliable and consistent benchmarking tool and thus we've decided to take it offline.

Fortunately, the Adobe AE dev team have been working hard implementing the new multi-frame rendering pipeline so we can all look forward to AE utilizing more of our ever-growing number of CPU cores/threads

AE Benchmark

the free benchmarking tool for After Effects



Dispell the Mystery


There's a lot of confusion (and disappointment) around After Effects performance, particularly on modern hardware. AE Benchmark uses real-world AE processing tasks to give you 3 scores:

  • Singlethreaded
  • Multithreaded
  • GPU

So if you’re wondering why a $10,000 rig only renders certain .aep’s ~20% faster than a $2,000 rig, you’ve come to the right place. AEB is intended to help users choose which hardware gives the best AE performance for their budget.
