Saber does not let aerender exit after rendering

Postby eamsler on 08/3/2018, 10:35 am

Hey all!

My name is Edwin and I work for Thinkbox Software. Makers of Deadline for controlling AE and other apps on render farms.

We're finding that the use of Saber in a project leads to 'aerender.exe' locking up after the render is complete if you run it from the command line. It's hard to gauge when After Effects is actually done rendering, so a lot of my hacks have been pretty brutal. You can test this yourself by running this from the command line on Windows:

"C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe After Effects CC 2018\Support Files\aerender.exe" -project "C:\Some\Path\To\Project_Using_Saber.aep" -comp "SomeComp" -s 1 -e 1 -sound OFF -close DO_NOT_SAVE_CHANGES

We're not exactly sure why this is happening, but we've been tracking the occurrences for about a year and it's been a problem before that. I'm happy to help however I can.
