after effects import output and render settings by command line

Hi!

I want to use aerender in docker to render multiple videos. I was able to install after effects and it works so far. But unfortunately I have a problem: I want to use a custom render- and output module template. Normally, with gui I would just import it, but I don't know if there is a command for command line to import it, so I tried an alternative:

I copied these settings:

• Adobe After Effects 15.1 Prefs-indep-output.txt

• Adobe After Effects 15.1 Prefs-indep-render.txt

from my normal computer (from path .../AppData/Adobe/After Effects/15.1) to the config folder on the docker image

But whenever I try to run aerender, I get the following error:

aerender version 15.1.1x12 After Effects warning: Invalid menu operation.

After Effects can't continue: unexpected failure during application startup

Is there any solution for this problem?

Hello!

Thanks for your answer.

Yes, I have checked the help for aerender.

With "-OMtemplate" and "-RStemplate" I can only define the name of the template, but the template has to exist in after effects.

Unfortunately I can't open after effects on docker in gui, so it isn't possible for me to create the templates.

And when I copy the settings from ..../AppData/Roaming/Adobe/After Effects/15.1/..., after effects crashes.

Hi @ToolfarmJP, any info about this and the Docker setup? But please don't send a link to the same document, it does not have anything in relation to Docker inside.

I know this post is few years old now. But I am trying to install AE in a docker image. Can you share how to do that?
