If your system has enough resources this should not be a problem.
Thanks for the reply,
so just to make sure I understand,
I can render in media encoder comps of project X while inside of after effects close X project and work on a Z project at the same time, without Media encoder loose media and without after effects crashing,
Is that correct?
Can I also exit after effects while encoder is rendering after effects comps?
To answer shortly your questions:
1. Yes you can start rendering project X from AE in AME and in the same time work on project Z in AE
2. Yes you can exit AE when you are rendering project/comp from AE in AMe
3. You can even import AE project (without turning AE on) into AME, chose which comp you wish to render and start rendering
4. You can also Start rendering of Comp 1 in project X in AME and work in the same time on Comp 2 in that same project.
The only thing that you have to remember are:
a) do I have enough RAM - in my opinion 32gb is optimal minimum
b) do I have fast enough processor
c) do i have good nough SSD/HDD setup to carry that kind of workload for me
Thanks! I'll make sure my system is up for it and start rendering :-)
I have always used the AME this way so I never spend time waiting for renders. Simply add a comp to the AME cue and start the render then start a new AE comp or project. If you have sufficient memory and CPU power the comp should render nearly as fast as it would in the Render Cue unless the comp contains Ray-traced rendering or is 100% compatible with MP rendering.
Thanks Rick, Works great!!! :-)
