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!

Set up your render workflow with multiple post-render options like Slack and Email notifications. Produce ProRes and mp4 files from sequence automatically. Monitor your renders remotely for free.

BG Renderer Max saves you time and hassle on production.

Faster render

Utilize your CPU to the maximum with Multiprocessing feature, or set the hard cap with CPU Limiter.

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

Easier workflow

We love smooth one-click workflows.

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

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 threads amount higher than half of your cores. For easier renders you may set it to the number of cores minus one. Please test with the minimum threads amount first.

System Requirements

  • After Effects CC2018+
  • macOS 10.13 and newer
  • Windows 10

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