I've had the feeling for quite some time now, that Ae redertimes keep getting longer and longer with every new release. Todays render might be a new negative record. I've got an absolut basic comp, only consisting of some verctor layers out of Ai files. Only position, scale, and rotation keyframes are used. No effects, no time remapping, no crazy precomps - Rendering straight out of Ae, not via Media Encoder - Quicktime codec without compression. I'm getting render times betwen 4 - 8 frames per minute. Has anyone encountered similar problems or has an idea what might cause this insane render times?
After some back and forth, i have identified the Illustartor files to be the cause of the issues. It seems Ae is having trouble rendering those as vector layers. I now have disabeld the verctorylayer checkmark and instead scaled up the canvas inside Ai. Now Ae is handling them as pixel images, but this is giving me a way better performance.
