Meet the new BG Renderer MAX!
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!
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:
We love easy one-click workflows.
So we made a minimalistic render indicator. Yeah, just like in GifGun.
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
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.
See the exact progress for each render queue element, sort by name, open render folders.
Convert sequence to animation
Flexible post-render file type conversions make life easier by automatically producing sequence and video files.
Custom render queue view
Enjoy easier render visual control with our custom Render Queue view.

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.
