NexRender Server

Data-driven render automation Server for After Effects, it Automates your Adobe After Effects rendering workflows and create data-driven and template based videos.

nexrender is a simple, small, carefully designed application with the main goal of rendering automation for Adobe After Effects based rendering workflows.

At this point in time, the project is mainly targeted at people at least somewhat comfortable with scripting or development, and that have basic knowledge of javascript language and json formats.


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.
