    Start watch folder from command line...

      Is there a script command on mac osx to start up a render node? What I'm really trying to do logically is to set a render to automatically restart if the node fails. I'm having a lot of problems with more than one node not being able to run at a time. And until I can trouble shoot the exact problem, I was hoping to get my render done with something like this:

      Run this script on a crontab every minute:

      Search the RCF file for: "Error Stopped"

      if it reads that, then rewrite the RCF file as:

      After Effects 8.0v1 Render Control File
      max_machines=16
      num_machines=0
      init=0
      html_init=0
      html_name=""

      (have to restart the watch at this point, so probably need to shutdown aftereffects)

      restart aftereffects and start watch folder again...

      HELP?!
