I'm trying to export a project and having trouble with the render times. The workflow is as follows:
import shapes from illustrator using Overlord, animate it in after effects and then send it to premiere trough the dynamic link to add sound effects and final touches (opening and final sequences, wich are in mp4). I export it trough media enconder.
For a comp that has 5 minutes, the time to export is 3 hours!
My cache disk is in the ssd, but the conformed cache is in a server (I can't change, because when i try to, it asks me if I want to delete the files or move them and I can't do neither - is my employer's server). I don't know how much this affect the render times.
In the AE step of the workflow, I use mostly basic animations with shapes (but there are many shapes!), and eventually some render intensive effects. I also try to precomp what I can.
I noticed that everytime I make a even a small change, AE renders the whole thing again. I would like to know why. I also would like to export the project faster.
If anyone has any insight into the topic I would very much appreciate it! Thank you!
