Hi all! How are you?
I've done a complex intro which involves the animation of a lot of elements through time. I was wondering what would the best way to render it is? My computer is not very powerful so I thought of rendering each individual element with their animation independently in an .mp4 file in After Effects and them putting them all together in Premiere. I'm not sure, since it'd be my first time using Premiere, but I think this would be less taxing on my computer and the rendering time would be shorter than if I rendered everything in AE?
Thank you for your replies/suggestions!
if its really super complex - you could consider rendering pieces to .mov with RGB+Alpha channels data, but not to .mp4. Simply because, rendered as .mp4's you will loose transparency of items and laying all of them back together wouldn't be possible.
Honestly, I think you should give it a try to render whole project at once - and only if it fails consider broking things down into pieces (as it would cause you some additional managing problems itself, so why to bother from the beginning :))
