Where can I find list of command line arguments to afterfx with their description ?
For example, what -m,-ro,-so do ?
Is it possible to run script without running UI from command line ?

Thank you

Here's the documentation for aerender [link], including command line arguments. Otherwise,
aerender -help

I don't think so.

Thanks for the answer.

I know about aerender -help, my question is about afterfx.exe

Any ideas ?

So sorry for failing to read correctly -- the only command line switches I'm familiar with for afterfx is -r, which runs a script in the UI, and -wf, which opens AE in watch folder mode.

I don't recognized the other switches you mentioned.

I know this is an old post, but you can run afterfx.exe with the -noui flag / switch to run it without loading the GUI.
