Have you ever used /path/script.sh + argvs ?

I just created my own shell commands in cinelerraGG, such as:
-Shortcut to the cinelerraGG pdf manual
-Shortcut to the old cinelerraCV manual in pdf format
-The opening of a terminal
-Opening the gimp application

I noticed that there is an option "run /path/script.sh + argvs" that would be useful for me.
So I searched in the manual but I didn't find a very precise explanation and no example.

To do a test I created a little bash script that simply reads the first argument and adds it to the test.txt file.

I create the shortcut in cinelerra with the command "bash ~/Private/fab_guide/fab_guide-nos_videos/test.sh" and I check run /path/script + argvs

At runtime, cinelerraGG returns "test: error exit status 32512".

How does this option work?

First of all, let me remind you that any shell commands that you set up are logged in $HOME/.bcast5/Cinelerra_rc where all of your setup variables are kept.  So you may want to occasionally backup this file. It is kind of like your $HOME/.profile file for settings.

 

So the manual description you read is Menu Bar Shell Commands, I assume.  And you can see information about  RenderMux which I think you are using.  For this case the important thing to understand is that this depends on CIN_RENDER being defined within your session.  You got the error when you edited and checked the run box.  What the RenderMux command runs is in wherever you installed Cinelerra at:  ./doc/RenderMux.sh  .

 

I too get the error and have to try to remember how this works and then will respond more intelligently, hopefully.

Thank you for your prompt response.

Yes that's right. The manual page is https://cinelerra-gg.org/download/CinelerraGG_Manual/Menu_Bar_Shell_Commands.html. After reading it, I realized that there was an example that I hadn't seen before.

So I compared and found my mistake. I replaced the call command "bash ~/Private/fab_guide/fab_guide-nos_videos/test.sh" by "~/Private/fab_guide/fab_guide-nos_videos/test.sh" and check "/path/script + argvs".
Now the call of this little test script works

I can now try to create a script that will make a copy of the snaps but in a smaller size.
