Offload Renders

Instead of wasting precious creative time waiting for renders on your workstation, offload them to Platform.



Take Back Your Creative Time

Platform workflow servers can be configured to act as an Adobe After Effects render node.  This means that both Windows and Mac clients running Adobe After Effects can submit render jobs to the Platform, freeing up processing power on your workstations for other tasks.

Platform Online Series can be configured with multiple high-powered graphics cards to further accelerate render processing.  Much more than in previous versions, Adobe After Effects CC utilizes hardware graphics acceleration for faster processing of 2D and 3D graphic elements, and for ray-traced 3D rendering.


How Does This Work?

Using the Platform Manager software, system administrators can designate a Platform Space (Shared Volume) as an Adobe After Effects render location. Mac or Windows users connected to the Platform that have access to that space, will be able to submit their render jobs to that location. The Platform system watches the designated Platform Space for job submissions and manages the remote submission to the After Effects render node software.

Accelerate Rendering From Cinema 4D

Platform workflow servers can be configured for Cinema 4D to work either as a standalone render server or with other computers as part of a render team.  This means that both Windows and Mac clients running Cinema 4D can submit jobs to the network to be processed by Platform and other team members, freeing up processing power on the workstations for other tasks.

With up to 24 cores onboard a Platform Online Series server has the processing power to take on complex calculations for Global Illumination, Ambient Occlusion and Subsurface Scattering, and render your animations with the efficiency needed to meet project deadlines.


How Does This Work?

Cinema 4D “Team Render” is an all-new network rendering concept that uses peer-to-peer communication to distribute render tasks.  A Platform workflow server on your network will listen for render requests from the workstations and then process those renders in the order submitted.
