What's it for?

BG Renderer Max gives you the power to render compositions in the background at maximum speed with After Effects' rendering engine. See ya later Media Encoder!

Faster render

Control the processor load with an adjustable Multiprocessing feature, and set up your render workflow with multiple post-render options like push notifications and file type conversions.

Just a quick example using a pretty mediocre iMac / 7700K / 32GB RAM:

BG Renderer Max – Render Time

Easier workflow

We love easy one-click workflows.

So we made a minimalistic render indicator. Yeah, just like in GifGun.

BG Renderer Chat

All new native notification system

Send render notifications as Slack messages and emails right from the BG Renderer MAX. No third-party accounts needed.

Tons of integrations

Zapier, Microsoft Flow, IFTTT, and Pushover integration mean more notifications options and better workflow enhancement.

BG Renderer Max – Integrations

This means, you can access the full power of Push notifications, SMS messages, writing render confirmations to Google Sheets, Trello cards, turning off your smart lightbulbs... Oh, the options!

Powerful message composer

Create custom render notifications with our built-in Message Composer.

Add tags easily with autocomplete and suggest features.

We listen to your ideas and feedback

BG Renderer Max is built with scalability and constant improvement in mind.

That's why we want you to submit ideas and vote on the ones you love. We'll incorporate the most popular into our roadmap!

Installing BG Renderer Max

Get ZXP Installer by aescripts, open it and drag BG Renderer Max.zxp into the interface.

Relaunch After Effects and go to Window -> Extensions -> BG Renderer Max

Good to know

After Effects' rendering capacity is mostly limited by your machine's RAM amount, not processor cores.

This is why we do not recommend setting the render streams count too high. For easy renders you may set it to the number of cores minus one, for heavier ones – don't exceed half of your core count.

System Requirements

  • After Effects CC2018+
  • macOS 10.13 and newer

Please note that there might be issues with Hackintosh setups. Please install at your own risk.
