Ways to Render/Export in After Effects with iRender (Part2)

After long hours of work you want to lay back and see it rendering, the most basic way of exporting or rendering your project in After Effects is by using its own render engine. Unfortunately, Adobe stopped allowing us to render in small formats such as MP4 from After Effects. Media Encoder comes as a bundle together with the installation of After Effects. Media Encoder can be purchased today from Adobe as a monthly subscription together with After Effects, for only $20.99 per month.

This takes us to the second method to render/export in After Effects. You can bridge your project directly inside Media Encoder and here you will be able to select many other types of file formats, including MP4 or H.264.

Step 1: Add to Adobe Media Encoder Queue

When you want to bridge your project directly inside Media Encoder, you simply go to the Composition drop-down menu from the top left corner of the window and select “Add to Adobe Media Encoder Queue

By doing this it will open up Media Encoder and your composition will be loaded inside it.

Step 2: Choose your file format, name & destination

Now just press on the first blue text associated with your composition, this will open up a new window in which you will choose the name, the destination, and one of them any file formats Media Encoder can provide, even MP4.

Step 3: Edit the settings for your video

Here you can also save presets like in After Effects and access them to speed up your work. After you’ve done everything press “Ok”.

Step 4: Render

Go to the top right corner of the window and press the green triangle to start the render.

One of the benefits of the encoder is that using it to render compositions lets you continue to work within Adobe After Effects, whereas rendering video in After Effects stops you from working on your composition until the render is complete. If you’re busy using AE and don’t want to interrupt your work with bulk rendering, try Adobe Media Encoder instead.
