Hi, I would like to be able to call VTM using automation and define the output path using command line. This way, it's possible to ensure that the output for different batch processes is always saved to their defined folders. It would also be possible to use the GUI and not worry about it messing with any established automation.

Right now it requires a lot of micromanagement using the GUI, since changes to environment page affect output whether from the GUI or command line - requiring a lot of micromanagement to use different folders.

Thanks for considering.

You can do something like:

Code: Select all

SET TMEXE=C:\Program Files\Video Thumbnails Maker\VideoThumbnailsMaker.exe
SET VTM=C:\Users\**********\AppData\Roaming\Video Thumbnails Maker\Options\your.vtm

REG ADD "HKCU\Software\SUU Design\Video Thumbnails Maker\Environment" /v outputPath /t REG_SZ /d "%VIDDIR%\Screens" /f
REG ADD "HKCU\Software\SUU Design\Video Thumbnails Maker\Settings" /v outputPath /t REG_SZ /d "%VIDDIR%\Screens" /f
REG ADD "HKCU\Software\SUU Design\Video Thumbnails Maker\Settings" /v outputToYourFolder /t REG_SZ /d True /f

"%TMEXE%" /nc "%VTM%" "%VIDDIR%"


Also the rest of the registry can be updated at will. I still experimenting with this.
