It isn't documented, but through trial and error I have determined that After Effects does not support invisible windows:

Invisible Windows in Cookbook

Can anybody else confirm this?

 

Thanks

You can, I've done it before. Make sure your manifest is set up right as outlined in the cookbook.

Thank you for encouraging me not to give up! I too got it working. My mistake was that Geometry/Size/Width and Geometry/Size/Height elements are required to exist -- though they may be set to zero. Example:

 

<Extension Id="com.test.invisible">
    <DispatchInfo>
        <Resources>
            <MainPath>./invisibletest.html</MainPath>
        </Resources>
        <Lifecycle>
            <AutoVisible>false</AutoVisible>
        </Lifecycle>
        <UI>
            <Type>Custom</Type>
            <Geometry>
                <Size>
                    <Height>0</Height>
                    <Width>0</Width>
                </Size>
            </Geometry>
        </UI>
    </DispatchInfo>
</Extension>

 

Thanks!
