    Run after effects script without opening after effects?

    Simon Zettervall Level 1

      I have a project as a template. I want to run a script that injects itself with the project and replaces videos and text depending on the contents of my script file. So far so good, but can I run the script without opening after effects GUI? I use this now: afterfx -r c:\script_path\example_script.jsx. Is it considered best practice to have after effects GUI up and running if going to do many script changes on the template? Basically I am looking for the same functionality as aerender with no GUI.
