Your renders will FLY with RenderGarden!
Increase your render speeds by 3 times on your computer and maximize your CPU cores when rendering across your network. RenderGarden is an absolute must-have script for After Effects users.
RenderGarden is an Adobe After Effects script that splits your comp into a specified number of segments. We refer to these segments as seed. Rendergarden then renders them to multiple background command line windows. Accordingly, these windows are called Gardeners. Through segmenting the comp into multiple seeds, you can fully maximize your CPU cores on a single machine or across multiple machines with network rendering.
