About


📹 Data-driven render automation for After Effects

nexrender is a simple, small, carefully designed application with the main goal of rendering automation for Adobe After Effects based rendering workflows.

At this point in time, the project is mainly targeted at people at least somewhat comfortable with scripting or development, and that have basic knowledge of the javascript language and json formats.


Features

  • data-driven, dynamic, personalized video rendering
  • automated video management, processing, and delivery
  • network-oriented project structure, render farm
  • highly modular nature, extensive plugin support
  • works only in cli mode, never launches After Effects GUI application
  • does not require licenses for Adobe After Effects on any worker machine
  • free to use and open source

How it works

  • rendering: It uses Adobe After Effects' aerender command-line interface application.
  • compositing: It creates a temporary folder, copies project and replaces assets with provided ones.
  • personalization: It uses AE's expressions, scripting, and compositing (noted above).
  • scheduling: It stores projects in a local database, managed from anywhere using HTTP API.
  • network: It renders project per machine, and can be used to render several projects simultaneously.
  • farm: Can be used to render a single project on several machines via Multi-Machine Sequence


Alternatives

Probably the closest (feature-wise) alternative that exists at the moment is the Dataclay's Templater bot edition. Compared to nexrender it has rich GUI support and a number of enterprise-scale features, however, it is not free.
