I would like to know if it is possible to command line render a Premiere file.

AfterEffects gives me this capability but I havent found it with Premere.

Thanks in advance.

At the moment I set off command line .bat file batch render which renders the frames out of a game engine, and compiles the edit in AfterEffects.

But I want to use Premiere instead of AE to compile the edit. If I knew what the command line render for Premiere was I could add it to my .bat script.

no...

you might be able to do this with an Adobe media encoder watch folder.

when frames are exported out of your engine...

then your .BAT will copy the Ppro project to the watch folder

which would then encode and output however you have it set...

The sequence you want to render must be the ONLY sequence in the root of the PPro project panel.

All others should be in bins (folder) in the project panel.

I just tested it and it worked fine for me....

I am trying your idea. Though I have come across a problem.

I made a Adobe media encoder watch folder then copied my .prproj into it.
A output folder is automatically made but no movie file has been rendered there.

My Premiere project is setup the way you described with only one sequence in the main window and all other elements in bin/folders.

I hope you may help me figure out what I might be missing?

are you monitoring AME during the test....

you should be able to actually watch the encode happen?

Hi. am not at work just yet so I can check at the moment.
But yes I think I did have auto watch checked on.
Would you be able to send me a screen grab of you AME?

Thanks for sending me the screen grab.

So you have a directory that AME watches. When a ###.prproj is place in that watch directory AME should grab it and start rendering it, correct ?


Auto-Encode is checked. I put nothing in the Queue window.
Should I put something in the Queue window?
Or does the watch folder put files in the queue window once it detects a file has been placed in the watch folder?

You are correct....you do not put anything in the queue.

The queue populates when material is placed in the watch folder you specify.

what happens when you place just a media file (quicktime for example) into the watch folder?

what version of Adobe media encoder are you running?

If I add a movie file in the watch folder it will start converting, but it won't render a premiere project file.
Are you sure it was rendering a premiere project file ?

Hello,
the feature to place a Premiere Pro Projekt in a watch folder is supported I guess since CC 2014.1. As I can see in your screen shot you are working in an older version, or ? Try it with the current version and it should work. Why not place the single frames in a wolder and than move to the watchfolder
