Core Engine Beta for BG Renderer Max

Starting with version 1.0.10, BG Renderer Max installs a new engine along with the old one. We call it the Core Engine Beta.

We've been working on the Core Engine for a couple of months. It gives us better flexibility for scaling and network features. On the user side, nothing has changed: just enable it and work as before.

We are going to continue developing the Core Engine only from now on and ship BG Renderer Max with Core Engine only within a couple of months.

List on new features exclusive to the COre Engine:

  • Remote Monitoring Beta – monitor your render status on any device for free
  • Add and remove compositions from any project on the fly
  • Change the number of render threads while the render process is underway

To switch to the Core Engine Beta, follow these steps:

Step 1

Hold shift and right-click anywhere on the interface. Select Enter raw command option.
Enter raw command
To disable the Core Engine beta enter nocore command.

Step 2

Enter core and click Submit. You should see the confirmation message below.
Restart After Effects.
Enable core


You will see a small circle in the lower right corner of the interface.
Core On
This is an indicator of the new engine state. Green circle stands for correctly running engine.
Core Off
Red circle indicates that there are issues with the engine.

BG Renderer Max will try to restart the engine and fix the issue, but if the red circle doesn't disappear, open Activity Monitor and force quit BGRendererMax process.
