Tooltip - Select version numbers to make an educated guess at where aerender is found on the remote worker. Use the spinners to enter the required version of After effects.
Tooltip - Leave it set to "_AE_" to allow the job to find the right version of aerender on the worker. Left default qube will automatically find the version of After Effects on the worker.
Path to the After Effects project (required).
Browse or enter manually the location of the project file to be rendered. This is a required field for submission
Important: Best practise is to ensure the project file and all of its dependant files such as textures are on network storage accessible by the workers.
After effects requires all plugins and fonts to be installed and licensed on every worker
Tooltip - The Composition to render
(required if specifying frame range or other overrides listed below) If the comp is in the render queue already, and in a queueable state, then (only) the first queueable instance of that comp on the render queue will be rendered. If the comp is in the project but not in the render queue, then it will be added to the render queue and rendered. If no -comp argument is provided, aerender will render the entire render queue as is. In this case (no -comp), the only other arguments used will be -project, -log, -v, -mem_usage, and -close; the -RStemplate, -OMtemplate, -output, -s, -e, and -i arguments will be ignored.
clear explanation needed
Render Queue Index
Tooltip - specifies a render queue item to be rendered. Options that make sense when rendering a single render queue item are available like with the -comp flag. Enter the numeric value to override scene render queue index settings.
Tooltip - the name of a template to apply to the render queue item.If the template does not exist it is an error. Default is to use the render template already defined for the item. Can only set if Composition option specified. Enter manually or select from drop-down.
Tooltip - name of a template to apply to the output module. If the template does not exist it is an error. Default is to use the template already defined for the output module. Can only set if Composition option specified NOTE: Distributing a render across multiple machines requires image sequence output. That is usually best set in the AfterEffects Project or the Output File Path override.
Enter manually or select from drop-down
Important: when choosing the output format be aware that extensions such as .MOV or .AVI can not be distributed across the farm. Please select an image sequence based format such as .TIF etc.
Output File Path
Tooltip - Specifying the destination render file. Default is the path already in the project file. For image sequences (the preferred method for distributed rendering) use # to denote frames. For example: /Volumes/Stuff/output/proj1/frames[####].psd. Can only set if Composition option specified.
Browse or manually enter the location of the output image directory you wish to generate
Important: Best practise is to ensure outputs are written to network storage accessible by the workers
Tooltip - (image_cache_percent max_mem_percent) where image_cache_percent specifies the maximum percent of memory used to cache already rendered images/footage, and max_mem_percent specifies the total percent of memory that can be used by After Effects. Enter the numeric value to override scene memory usage settings.
Tooltip - specifies the type of messages reported
