Would anyone know when multi processing is going to be added to CC 2015? We are about to downgrade back to CC 2014 because the latest version is useless with heavy comps and large resolutions.
Obviously we don't want to change an office full of machines and a render farm if an update will be coming out soon.
Any help is much appreciated.
The entire architecture of AE is being rewritten making Render Multiple frames simultaneously unnecessary. It was always clunky and subject to problems and incompatibility anyway. Don't look for the option to return but expect performance to improve in the next version.
With AE CC 2014, you can open projects that were created in AE CC 2015. It's very handy. You can install CC 2014 without removing CC 2015. That may help ease the transition.
I usually work in CC 2015 (since it's snappier, has better expression handling, etc.) then open it in CC 2014 to render.
There is an update for CC 2015 coming "later this year" according to Adobe, but I don't think it'll have the new version of multiprocessing in it since it's not mentioned here: What’s new and changed in the upcoming update to After Effects CC 2015
So, basically, it's coming sometime, but likely not this year. Does that help?
