how to submit a job in afx with no gui
« on: May 10, 2011, 09:30:26 PM »
Hi,

I'm just starting with Qube, so hopefully this is a simple questions and I'm just missing something basic.

I want to have users be able to submit a job from within after effects, but i don't want them to have to worry about the gui. I just want to grab the necessary information like frame range, output path, etc. and pass it along as a job to Qube.

However, when I use the script within after effects to add a job, I automatically get a gui window showing up. I've tried writing a command to just run qbsub with the same parameters but then Qube only shows the entire project as 1 item, and there is no percentage finished based on frames. Should I be running the "cmdrange" job type along with all the Package parameters as arguments to qbsub?

Am I going about this the wrong way or am I missing something?

Thanks for any help,
Adam

ok, nevermind. There was a simple answer and I just didn't see it. The wonderful --nogui parameter. All is well here.

Yup, --nogui is the way to go.  Glad you got it sorted.  ;)
