    Render Engine Requires Sign In

    BGPictures Level 1



      I have a single-user CC licencse and am trying to render a big project on multiple Mac Pros. I believe I have followed the steps in the posts below correctly -- yet I can not get After Effects Render Engine (or AE in render-only mode) to launch without requring me to sign in to CC again.

      1. Go to the Creative Cloud download page to download and install After Effects CC.
      2. When the installation is complete, start After Effects.
      3. Choose Sign Out from the Help menu.
      4. Quit After Effects.
      5. Create and place the ae_render_only.txt file as described here.



      I tried putting the .txt file in both directories, but no luck. Can anyone figure out what is going wrong?


      Thanks in advance,
