Not possible as far as I know. CS6 and above 64bit only... Nucelo 32...
Which features from Nucleo Pro are you interested in using? There are several equivalent features in After Effects CS5 and later.
I still have one machine configured with CS5 and Nucleo Pro, because it offers some functionality that AE->AME workflow does not.
AME is a great way to background render individual output files, but it lacks the sophistication of the Render Queue when you need to render specifics and multiple files. I have an ongoing job that requires the weekly generation of around 30 categories of an award show. Each category (project) requires the output of two video files and two stills from specific parts of the timeline of one comp. These output parameters, including output formats, locations and in-out points, are stored in the project template's Render Queue. As far as I'm aware, there's no easy way to move all these parameters to AME easily - a great deal of manual interaction would be required to generate each of the 120 output files from 30 projects each week. Whereas, using Nucleo I just hit render and keep working. It's literally a one click workflow.
It's a shame there isn't a "Send After Effects Render Queue to Adobe Madia Encoder" function. I must lodge a feature request.
Nucleo Pro does a great job of background rendering, and I do miss it's availability in later versions of AE. There is also a script available over at AE Scripts that background renders.
hello, well this gets interesting then, because AE cs5 is 64bit isn't it...?
@ Andrew: you haven't tried using it with cs6 by chance?
No, nor CS5.5. I simply kept this machine's partition in a reliable working state for this specific job. It's a Mac Pro running OS10.6.8.
hello, @ Andrew: at this point then does AE cs6 do previews 'as fast as' nucleo pro? i checked out the ae script for bg rendering so that's a keeper
but while working on a project i am questioning the speed of both products...i own cs5 and cs6 but can't get my nucleopro3 to activate because of the 404 of gridiron...
thanks a ton for the info, cheers, j
CS6 uses multiprocessing for RAM preview generation, so there's no obvious reason why Nucleo could do that any faster. CS6 also has substantially improved caching abilities, and from my experience is faster to work with than CS5 in most respects during the design stage.
> can't get my nucleopro3 to activate because of the 404 of gridiron..
GridIron no longer exists. Their old CEO is now the product manager for After Effects. This might have something to do with some of the new features in After Effects (like caching the work area in the background) that accomplish similar goals as Nucleo Pro.
hello, i'm trying to get the nucleopro3 up and running on the cs5.03 machine
the cs6 ways of handling look like a built in nucleopro now which should be very efficient
thanks Todd for the link to the video
i emailed SteveForde to see if he couldn't help out
