catch an INFO statement in stdout
« on: May 17, 2011, 10:18:22 PM »

I am working with After Effects rendering in Qube. Sometimes, we will not have a font on a rendering machine that the client machine had. Running aerender on the composition will cause font substitution to occur. I would like a way to have the qube job fail is a font is missing.

However, aerender which is the After Effects command line renderer, only spits out an "INFO" line when a font is missing, not an error. Is there any way to make a callback that will catch that info line, and then automatically fail the job based on that?

Thanks for any help,

Add "The following layer dependencies are missing" (without the quotes) to the "regex errors" field in the submission UI (see attached screenshot), or add a key/value pair to the job's package:

'regex_errors': 'The following layer dependencies are missing'

Qube will look for this in the output and fail the frame if it's found.
