    After Effects render-engine CC2017 license issue


      Hi there,


      I am trying to setup our render-farm for AFX rendering and am encountering some issues. Problem is that the ae-render engine can't be started without license. Everything I find online implies that the render engine can be run without license. Did anything of that change on a recent update? And if not what's the proper way to setup a render node/slave?

      I logged in with an Adobe-ID to install After Effects, started the main software as well as the render engine once (and closed it afterwards) and then unsigned the Adobe-ID. Are any further steps required?
