    Ray-traced 3D renderer. Still frames rendering in animatons.

    ArtemTrushchelev Level 1


      I'd like to ask pros how can I optimise rendering process of the animations?

      I have a composition with text-layer extruded with Ray-traced 3D engine. There is an intro (text appears) and outro (text disappears). Between intro and outro are just still frames, without any motion. When I render it, I see how after rendering intro, every single still frame rerenders again and again. It's increases rendering time significantly, why it's happening? How can I optimise rendering process? Is it possible for AE to render a single still frame of the animation, realise that next frame is the same and skip rerender, continue rendering next fragments of an animation to the end?  Maybe there is a cache or something else that needs to be enabled?


      AE version is CC 2015.3 (

      Mac OS X 10.11.6 (15G31)
