In my Activity Monitor, I'm showing two different Process Names when I use aerender- aerender and aerendercore, so I'm assuming aerender is running already. When I launch an aerender with the -reuse Flag, I get a new set of aerender and aerendercore processes, plus the terminal outputs
PROGRESS: Launching After Effects... and just hangs there for 20-30 seconds while it launches another instance of Ae.
Any idea what's going on here? Why isn't it reusing the currently running aerender process?
When it does reuse it properly, does launching a new render happen nearly instantaneously?
Thanks a bunch!
This may make a difference:
I'm on Mac OS X 10.5.8, AE CS4.
Here's the command I'm issuing:
./aerender -reuse -project /Users/greg/Desktop/Fred.aep
