I m trying to batch process some files before rendering.
my purpose is to get some top directories, and make a movie file for all subdirectories in this directory.
I want to do as batch, which mean without getting AE UI started.
It works with windows and the -r flag for the script and the -noui for not using the user interface.
But for a codec problem, I have to do it on Mac (ProRes encoding).
I bumbed into many problems that chains each other.
The first problem is that the UI is starting.
Then when the UI is starting and I try to render some already existing files, then a error message like "cannot write file" popup randomly... stopping everything.
I tried many things like suppressing dialogs, overiding error processing:
app.onError = err;
This works... until a certain point. If the file I want to write is open, then the error message still is appearing....
Does anyone have any ideas of how i could circumvent those problems?
