Ok after some more testing... If I remove the -v (verbose) option it will run and give me a readout of what is happing... Weird because the verbose option is supposed to do that I thought... So maybe it is being invoked twice?
Ok, one thing I can't tell is if I am rendering every other frame... I think it is rendering every other frame but naming it sequentially...
Is there a way to have it render every other frame and get its frame number from the frame it is rendering? So if it starts on frame 1 then skips to frame 3... The second frame in my rendered sequence would have the 0003 file append rather than 0002
This might be so confusing no one knows what I mean... Sorry... Basically, I don't have a fast network solution for my computers and want to only render odd frames on one and even frames on another and then just combine the image sequence later...
Hi Bernard Digital,
Are you still struggling with command line rendering issues? Please let us know. Perhaps we can assist you further.

I've never done a CL render with after effects but I know that in general flags require arguments.
The one thing I noticed looking at your command line was that the flag "-v" had no argument.
Your follow post confirmed that that was the flag causing the problem.
You should try it again, give that flag a proper argument (my guess is that it takes a boolean) & see if it works.
oh i thought the -v was the option... I think I am getting confused with bash commands vs arguments here... Thanks for the insight
