AnimaPlugin - our plugin which automatically assembles a scene and allows you to start rendering on our farm directly from After Effects
The plugin helps:
- Warn if compositions have been added to the Render Queue;
- Warn if the Skip existing files option is enabled, if the Module output has a "Sequence" output format;
- Send your scene to a render/Demorender.
By clicking on the "Download plugin" button on the "AnimaPlugins" tab, the manager will determine the location of your AE and download our plugin to the desired folder.
The plugin requires running AnimaManager.
The plugin creates folders in the temporary folder and saves the scene files, therefore, you need to allow the plugin to create and save files: Edit -> Preferences -> General -> Allow scripts to write files and network
After installation, the plugin will be available in the menu File -> Scripts -> AnimaPluginsAE.jsxbin
If the scene settings are correct, then by pressing the Render button, the scene will be compiled in a way similar to the standard AE scene collector (Dependencies -> Collect Files)
The scene is copied to a temporary folder in ANIMATMP environment variable that you specified in AnimaManager, after, AnimaManager archives the scene, sends it to our FTP and sets the task to render.
