    Distribute render settings


      We have about 12 machines running AE CC. As render settings are user specific it's a bit headache making sure all machines have the correct and updated render settings, especially when we have freelancers that move between machines. Is it possible to drop them somewhere they are avaliable to all users on the machine?

          You could sync your templates with CC and share the resulting files/ folder. Otherwise some scripting could get you there, possibly with normalsystem copy operations to a shared location as well and then back to the local installs whenever someone launches AE with a startupmscript....

            Hi I have a startup script that is run every time a user loads AE so if a script could load the latest templates that sounds like a good way to go. Can the script somehow load the .aom and .ars file or could you explain further how to go about this?

              You can invoke system commands from inside a script using system.callSystem(xcopy -source -target) for instance. you just need to fill in the paths. You could fancy that up with some smart regex or similar. Also don't forget that you can access the prefs using the app.settings.getSettings() method and its brotehr and sister functions...
