    aerender.exe (14.1) fails while (13.8) works for same project

    Jan Brana

      Hi everyone. I'm trying to render a local job with aerender.exe using Windows 7 CMD. I've done this many times before and have even produced my own tools and scripts around it. However, I haven't tried the latest After Effects CC version, and now when trying to send a simple job to aerender.exe for the latest After Effects version (14.1) the job/CMD window comes to an halt even before a frame is produced, but does not crash or produce any error. It just seems stuck on something.


      If I render the exact same project (but converted to After Effects 13.8) aerender.exe works as expected without problems.


      The command I'm sending to CMD is very simple:


      "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe After Effects CC 2017\Support Files\aerender.exe" -project C:\test\test.aep

      The project file itself contains nothing unusual, basic source material and a prepared job in the render queue.

      Does anyone know what might be going on here?


      Thanks for any help.
