Today, we are excited to announce a new feature in After Effects called the Composition Profiler. The Composition Profiler is visible through a new timeline column, Render Time, that allows you to see how long each layer, mask, layer style, expression and effect took to render for your current frame.

 

You can enable the Composition Profiler by clicking the snail in the lower left section of the timeline to show the Render Time column. You'll also notice the time taken to render the whole frame is now shown in the footer. You can also right click on the Timeline window column headings and choose Render Time.

To help you get started with the Composition Profiler we've put together the attached PDF documentation. Please check it out! 

 

We'd love to hear your feedback and what you learn about your compositions!

 

Thanks,

Sean

I tweeted about this already, but this is going to be such a useful tool NOT ONLY for figuring out what's going on in a messy project file you get handed, but also just for figuring out new and better ways of doing your own projects!

The snail's official name is Oscar, by the way. As in "Oscar, go!"

 

I was so happy when I heard that.

It could also be a beach with a nice big sun on the background.

Hi,

This is great news.

Nevertheless I updated my AE 2021  to the latest version available (18.4.1) and this tool isn't available.

 

How can I access that release?

 

Thanks.

Nuno

The Composition Profiler is available in the AE Beta builds. Open the Creative Cloud Desktop app, look for the Beta section in the left hand navigation column and install After Effects (Beta).

This is EPIC!!!

Does it calculate based on the comp resolution, or relative to the previewing res (1/4, 1/3, 1/2...)?

It calculates based on however the frame was rendered. So if it was interactive frame selection, it will use the preview resolution. If it's from preview playback, it will use the settings as per the preview panel settings (spacebar, etc.). It could also render from the new speculative preview/cache frames when idle. You may find different rendering times for each of those depending upon the settings so you'll want to be consistent in your approach if absolute times matter.
