right now - our API kicks off Templater using the command line. Would be great to be also able to send a “disable bot” command as well.
Is it possible to shutdown Bot from the command line?
@rudramakesmovie Unfortunately, this is not currently available. See our docs on the tasks object found in the templater-options.json file. If you’re API is kicking off templater via the command line, you should be able to get some kind of process id returned. You can then use that id to kill the After Effects process. Getting the id of the AE process would likely be different for a Windows and macOS machine.
We know it’s not the most elegant solution, but it should work. We are considering integrating a more elegant way of handling this.
