Hello, do we have any documentation on command line options?
I would like to batch a lot of stuff out of PPRO and automate stuff.

Thanks!

There is no documentation around PPro's command line options.  CEP-based panels are the correct (and supported) platform, for automation and batch processing in PPro. If you can provide more specifics about the workflow(s) you'd like to support, I can provide better guidance to relevant example code.

Thank you, Bruce.

What I basically want is to automate things with Deadline so I could chain jobs and scripts, automating a part of our workflow.

If I were to use CEP exclusively I would need to write a new tool just to do this, which is something that I would like to avoid.

The old workflow (pre-2022) was:
    <PPRO.exe> <item.pproj> /C es.processFile <path.jsx>

It seems that the above doesn't work with 2022 anymore, which I find unfortunate.

Ric.

Command line is not the right approach; CEP panels are.

You can either pass a project, or a script; not both. This works:

"C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Premiere Pro 2020\Adobe Premiere Pro.exe" /C es.processFile C:\Users\bbb\Desktop\test.jsx

Thanks, Bruce.

 

With the current code-base that we have in-house I couldn't implement CEP with much of the tools used in the python environment, hence, batching.

I will try not adding the name of the prproj, if that works then we may be ont on to something.

CEP panels can also invoke Python scripts. 🙂
