    After Effects render farm on dedicated servers




      I haven't found clear information about this topic so sorry if I missed something.


      I have a web project idea where users can create custom videos from their content (something like Animoto.com). Here is simplified workflow:

      1. User uploads photos, add text and music.

      2. This mdeia content sends to main server to After Effects project folder.

      3. Server renders a video based on user's content.

      4. User can review and buy the video from my web service.




      1. Can I use After Effects render engine for such (commercial) service?

      2. Do I need to buy some special license for this kind of task?

      3. Do I need to buy separate full After Effects (CS6) version for all rendering machines (in my case multiple dedicated servers)?



      Thank you a lot for your answers!
