Using the following command caused AME to crash. 


"C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Media Encoder 2020\Adobe Media Encoder.exe" --console es.executeScript "D:\TEST\test.jsx"

Contents of script
var a = "b";

 

It seems this issue was introduced in 14.0.3 as the crash doesn't happen if i roll back to 14.0.1.

14.1 - Crash
14.0.4 - Crash
14.0.3 - Crash
14.0.1 - Works

 

I've confirmed this happens on two seperate machines.

Hi Bruce, thanks for the confirmation and examples! I'll give es.processFile a go and try a more simple project/epr file to see if my aep might be causing some issues of its own. Thanks again for your time, very much appreciated. All the best, Harry

If you replace --executeScript (which expects a blob of ExtendScript to follow) with --executeFile (which expects a path to an ExtendScript file), the call works fine.

Crash also with 14.4. 

 

Do you know how to execute a script by command line but with media encoder already ?

Just what you've already used:

 

"C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Media Encoder 2020\Adobe Media Encoder.exe" --console es.executeScript "C:\Users\username\Desktop\test.jsx"

This just doesn't work, I've tried everything. It surely does make AME.exe as active app, but it doesn't run the script. Of course script runs from extendscript, but not like this. Any ideas?

It's not a crash for me, the script just doesn't run.

es.executeScript produces the crash; es.executeFile launches AME but doesn't execute the script.

This works correctly, with shipping AME, with all flags set to default.

"C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Media Encoder 2020\Adobe Media Encoder.exe" --console es.processFile C:\Users\bbb\Desktop\test.jsx

Yes! But, AME has to be closed.

Quick question, is there a way (with scripting of course) to apply multiple presets to one file.

for(var i=0; i<presetsArray.length; i++){

app.getFrontend().addFileToBatch(sourceMOV, "H.264", presetsArray[i], destination);

}

this just adds multiple items in queue which is not really ideal for me. Thanks.

var matchSourceSettings = true;
var source              = "/Users/bbb/Movies/aaa.mxf";
var destination         = "/Users/bbb/Desktop/output";
var presetsArray        = '/Users/bbb/Desktop/test1.epr|/Users/bbb/Desktop/test2.epr';

var exporter = app.getExporter();
if (exporter){
  var result = exporter.exportGroup(source, destination, presetsArray, matchSourceSettings);
}

 

 

Note: Preset "array" is actually just a bunch of paths to .epr files, concatenated with a "|".

Ahhh, thanks a lot, I would have never figured it out based on AME scripting guide. Just for anyone reading this, which confused me a bit,  "matchSourceSettings = true" will keep presets as they are except dimensions, change to false if your presets have different dimensions, like in my case. Anyway, once again, thanks a lot Bruce! 🙂

Hi Bruce,

 

Any chance someone's got to the bottom of this yet?

 

We're having the same issues in 15.1. We're running the .exe with "-console es.executeFile" and trying to run the below to add an AE comp to the the queue and kick it off:

app.getFrontend().addCompToBatch(pathToAEP, pathToEPR, pathToOutput);

var encoderHost = app.getEncoderHost();
encoderHost.runBatch();

while (encoderHost.isBatchRunning())
{
    app.wait(10000);
}
app.quit();

We see the same behaviour in that calling "es.executeFile" instead of "es.executeScript" opens without crashing but doesn't execute the script. (what's weird though is that it does execute the addCompToBatch function in 14.0.3 but then doesn't run "encoderHost.runBatch();" so we're still in the same situation. 15.1 just does nothing).

 

Any updates would be hugely appreciated!

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Harry

I've confirmed that this works correctly, in current versions; I used a very basic .aep, and an H.264 .epr file.

 

 

"C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Media Encoder 2021\Adobe Media Encoder.exe" --console es.processFile "C:\Users\bbb\Desktop\ame.jsx"
