I have following problem. Since I installed the avast (antivirus/firewall) update 2014.9.0.2008, my BG Renderer script, respectively the aerender, won´t start to render anymore. I tried it with After Effects CC and CS6 with the newest and older versions of BG Renderer script.
Lloyd Alvarez told me (after I send him two screenshots), that avast blocks the port aerender uses. The error is coming from aerender not BG Renderer. As long as I stop the firewall, all works fine.
Here my question:
Does anybody know which port aerender uses?
Thanks in advance,
Avast causes lots of problems with applications that communicate over TCP, including the Adobe video applications. It has also been known to cause severe performance problems with Premiere Pro.
I recommend using a different security application.
thanks for your response.
Yes, the new avast version causes lots of problems. On an other machine, the 3ds max backburner won´t render with avast anymore, too.
Anyway, the easiest way for me would be to 'unblock' the portnumber for aerender. Does a portnumber defined for aerender exist?
If not, I will follow your advice.
