nexrender is a simple, small, carefully designed application with the main goal of rendering automation for Adobe After Effects based rendering workflows.
data-driven, dynamic, personalized video rendering
automated video management, processing, and delivery
network oriented project structure, render farm
highly modular nature, extensive plugin support
works only in cli mode, never launches After Effects GUI application
does not require licenses for Adobe After Effects on any worker machine
free to use and open source
How it works
rendering: It uses Adobe After Effects' aerender command-line interface application.
compositing: It creates a temporary folder, copies project and replaces assets with provided ones.
personalization: It uses AE's expressions, scripting, and compositing (noted above).
scheduling: It stores projects in a local database, managed from anywhere using http api.
network: It renders project per machine, and can be used to render several projects simultaneously.
farm: Can be used to render a single project on several machines via Multi-Machine Sequence.
