I have some text layers in a composition that I replace via a script. I'd like to render out the comp via aerender, but aerender does not have an option flag for executing a script upon its execution. Is there a method for executing a script for a project file before aerender begins its work? I need the text layers to be replaced by the script before rendering begins. I found this thread on here that is a bit over a year old, but it kinda faded. I was hoping to possibly learn if anybody has a solution to this.
I don't think so. Since scripts are UI commands and not associated with projects, the RQ has no way of executing them. Still, I don't necessarily see this is a problem - you can always use a batch file/ Apple Script to launch a full AE, have it execute your script (including opening the project, modifying it and saving it again) and then launch the render instance only.
