Great article! Running aerender is a popular solution among our Dataclay Templater users to enable quick turnaround of thousands of versioned videos. While it is still necessary to have one or more After Effects systems running Templater to handle the versioning of .aep files, rendering those AE project files is the real bottleneck in most cases. Templater offers the option to to remove the Templater plugin from the versioned .aep file – but we have found it to be more reliable to install one of our perpetual Templater Rig license on each render system. It appears Deadline would be a great complement to a Templater-driven render farm, and I can even see potential to integrate the Deadline api with our QUE api for true scaling of completely automated video workflows!
