How to render every Nth frame?

  1. Default How to render every Nth frame?

    Hi Folks,

    I am trying to figure out how to get AE to skip a certain number of frames when rendering. For example, how can I tell it to render every 10th frame, and to skip the ones in between? Seems like I've seen it before in AE but can't seem to find it. Can this be done?

    Thanks in advance,

    Joel Miller

    You can tell RAM Preview to skip frames using the Time Controls palette (typically, I set Shift-RAM-Preview to skip frames). In the Render Module, you'll have to do the math and set the frame rate accordingly.

    That's what I was afraid of. Thanks Aaron.

    Depending on how long your piece was, you could precomp it all and set timeremap held keyframes.

    You can specify Nth frame rendering when you render from the command line using aerender:

    "-i increment" where increment is the number of frames to
    advance before rendering a new frame. A value
    of 1 (the default) results in a normal rendering
    of all frames. Higher increments will repeat the
    same (frame increment-1) times and then render a
    new one, starting the cycle again. Higher values
    result in faster renders but choppier motion.
    Default is 1.

    so:

    aerender -i 2 -project /Volumes/Stuff/projects/proj1.aep -comp "Comp 1"
    -output /Volumes/Stuff/output/proj1/proj1.mov
