All your machines working as one

Install Render Boss in all your machines. When you send a render, Render Boss coordinates them so they all work as one. And if you need to use a machine, it only takes a couple of clicks to stop it and turn off Render Boss. The other machines will take over and finish rendering without missing a beat.

Push your machine to its limit!

Get the most out of multi-core CPUs. Render Boss monitors the CPU, RAM, and GPU usage in real-time and dynamically adds or removes parallel render instances, using the available resources without choking slower machines.

Seamless Integration

Set your Render Queue as usual. With the push of a single button, Render Boss will spread it across the network, or between your CPU core and stitch the frames into the final file.

You can even choose to finish on Media Encoder instead of After Effects, in case you need H.264 or other outputs supported only by AME.

No fiddling with network settings or command lines

Whether you have one, or twenty machines. It’s easy to setup Render Boss. Just point all the machines to a shared folder then… that’s it, actually.

Control your renders remotely

Once you turn Render Boss On in a machine, that machine will be ready to receive renders.

If you have multiple machines, you can monitor and control them all from a single machine. Get them ready to render, stop a process, etc. No need to get up from your seat.

Detailed Reports

Get the status of all your machines and renders in a simple-to-use web interface that can be seen from any type of device. No need to have Render Boss installed.
