Detecting in plugin if being called for a movie?

My plugin usually displays its own progress bar when rendering, but when called to render each frame of a movie the progress bar can be annoying. I'd like to hide it if I know I am being called for a movie. Is there a way to detect in the code if this is the case, in a way that can be distinguished from a normal smart object, filter menu, or action call?

    No, I don't believe there is any way to do that.

    The API is abstracted so that the filter should not know it is being called from a smart filter or movie -- it should appear the same as being called from an action.
