BG Renderer MAX for After Effects

The power to render compositions in the background at maximum speed!

BG Renderer MAX for After Effects lets you render compositions in the background, while maintaining full control.  It brings multiprocessing, lots of integrations, notifications and file type conversions – all in one super tool.

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.

  • BG Renderer Max now supports true multiprocessing.
  • New native notification system with the support of Slack and email.
  • Integration with Zapier, Microsoft Flow, IFTTT and Pushover give you even more options for notifications and workflow enhancement.
  • Flexible post-render file type conversions make your life easier by automatically producing both sequence and video files.
  • Easy visual control of your render process with custom Render Queue view.

Easier workflow

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

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

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.

Built-in support

Get instant help on every part of the interface, any action, anything.

Awesome script for AE
