In Topic: Run Multiple After Effects Instances

Always been an issue. Unfortunately, it's hard to put a test case together, because it only happens on large projects, though it seems like the problem is usually triggered by grabbing properties from layers in other comps.


Honestly, seeing as how we're all still on CS6, I doubt we'd see a fix even if the problem could be isolated. There are way bigger bugs that I don't expect to see patched.

I'd also highly recommend BGRender Pro if you're not familiar with it already.


That wouldn't actually solve my problem. BGRender Pro uses aerender to render things in the background, but aerender chokes on a lot of expressions. No idea why.


The only thing that's worked is actually rendering things in the AE GUI--I assume that it evaluates expressions slightly differently than aerender.

Almost six years to the day, this thread just saved me. Trying to quickly spit out a render, but the expressions in the project break when I use aerender (I have no idea why this is a problem, always drives me mad).


Popped open a few copies of AE, and now things are running along smoothly. Awesome.

Love it when a reel actually shows someone's style. Really, really enjoyed this.

And global variables for expressions? 


That would change my life forever. Though I understand that global variables might be pretty much impossible to implement.
