What is Multi-Frame Rendering and How Does it Impact Performance?

The new Multi-Frame Rendering feature in After Effects changes how the rendering engine in After Effects works, allowing it to render multiple frames at the same time. After Effects examines specific attributes, such as how many CPU cores are available for utilization, the available RAM and VRAM, how complex the composition is, and then determines how many frames to render concurrently in order to deliver the best performance.

Multi-frame rendering (or MFR) dramatically improves performance for exporting and previewing compositions by allowing After Effects to process multiple frames at the same time. The benefit varies based on computer hardware and the exact project, but even a modest system with a 4 to 8 core CPU can often see a 2 times increase in performance. Additionally, if users have a CPU with 16 or more cores, they could see up to a 3 – or even more than 4 – times increase in performance.
