Set Log-Path for Watch Folder Command Line
on Dec 2, 2018 at 2:38:32 pm

Dear Ae-Users,

i'm currently setting up automatic rendering on my machines here and i need the log-files to be put out to a different folder than the project's .aep-location. This is what i currently have:

Since i need the ae watch folder rendering to start automatically on PC start, i created a cmd line like this one:
„C:\Programme\Adobe\Adobe After Effects \Support Files\afterfx.exe“ -re -wf C:\(aep location)

Now from the manual i know that you can use certain parameters for the "aerender" engine command line tool - but it seems they do not apply to the "afterfx.exe".

I was trying to use this line to change the path:
„C:\Programme\Adobe\Adobe After Effects \Support Files\afterfx.exe“ -re -wf C:\(aep location) -log C:\logs\(log location)

But it throws the following error:
"test for root allowed on directory only"

Any ideas what i can do her?

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards
