AE's render engine can be installed on as many machines as you need. Read this for al lthe details:
Do we just download the AE application onto each render node and run it as non-royalty bearing mode? I have 5 machines to use, but slow internet. Is there one download we can use to get the whole AE program, instead of using the downloader? I have a cloud subscription.
Apologies if this is a silly question, but would make sense downloading it once instead of 5x.
