I am in the process of setting up a network rendering machine. I have followed tutorials and read online and I have been trying my single machine only by exporting an image sequence from After Effects and then re-importing as image sequence then render out using H.264 YouTube 1080 Preset. But it takes longer to export image sequence than it does to directly render out my project in H.264 never mind then adding on the H.264 render time. it takes more than twice as long. Could i be doing something wrong?
Either that or is this a useless venture. Im open to any improved workflow solutions. Any other information can be provided on request.
