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
(have to restart the watch at this point, so probably need to shutdown aftereffects)
restart aftereffects and start watch folder again...
