after effects render resolution settings with media encoder
on Jun 2, 2017 at 2:02:33 am

I have a set of questions (the answers to which might be super obvious) for which I can't find a clear explanation online:

- Before I output my After Effects comps, I always change the resolution to "full" (since it's always on something lower for working + scrubbing through etc). Is this necessary when using Media Encoder for output?

- If the answer to the above is "yes", then is it also necessary to have all of the nested comps' resolutions also set at "full"? Which would mean that I'd need to go through and check all of the resolutions of all the nested comps, and the nested/nested comps etc — which can get pretty hairy with a big sloppy AE project.

Thanks ☺ I can't wait to find out the answer...

Actually, you can keep the resolution for all those nested comps at full while you work in the main comp some other resolution. You'll be fine. it won't slow you down.

Now, it doesn't hurt to put the main comp resolution to full before you save & use AME. There's some weird thing in recent versions of AE that uses the current resolution -- never mind that your render settings say to use full resolution. I think they've fixed it, but I don't know for sure so I don't take that chance.

I guess I'm as much in the dark as you are.

Thank you very much for the explanation, and the advice to err on full resolution when rendering.

1. No
2. No
Just make sure you Ae version is updated to the latest update of your release (2015,2015.3,2017)

Hey Nancy,

Adobe Media Encoder will render by default with the highest resolution settings and inside you can actually use the render presets or define one of your own. I generally use MP4 with H264 encoding, Variable bit rate (VBR) max 10 and min 8, Level 5.1. There's a preset for Media Encoder that you can import and it will automatically render with the best settings. You can see it here:

Hope this helps
