Command line access/API access

Post by tk421storm »

We're looking at streamlining our usage of Reduce Noise in our studio - we think the "automatic" button gives passable results in almost all occasions, so we wanted to automate a process that would provide an "Automatic" output without user intervention.

However I haven't found a command line/api function to deal with doing basic degrains headlessly. We realize that there are a lot of options which require a users' intervention; however in our business case sometimes volume is more important than accuracy.

There is no command line interface or API in the current versions of Neat Video, so doing that is not really possible yet.

We will consider adding more tools to enable automatic processing in the future versions.

Thank you,

Hello everyone,

is this feature something that has been implemented in more recent versions?
We also want to streamline our Denoise automization and be able to run an auto-profile on the OFX plugin without the user having to enter the GUI - just something that we can trigger from outside via Python.
Ideally we would get some sort of signal back if the auto-profiling succeeded or failed (e.g. when the detected sample area was too small).
Would this be possible to implement for the "auto-profile current frame" as well as "auto-profile noisiest frame"?
Best,

Dirk Jansen-Michels

This has not been implemented yet. This idea is in the wish list for future versions.

Thank you.

Is it easier to implement to just have another button available for the OFX plugin like "quick auto-profile" with which we don't have to enter the GUI? This would already help a lot.

It may be easier in terms of implementation but this general idea is a complicated architectural question that requires more systematic approach.

Hello,

We are interested in using the command line to speed up our pipeline, do you have any idea when such an option will be implemented?

Thank you

Unfortunately no, we do not currently have it in the development plans.
You may want to explore using the command line interface to start the host application that will in turn use the plug-in. That is directly possible with AE and Nuke as far as I know. Other host applications may offer a command line version as well.

By using the CLI of Nuke it'll still need to interact with the ui of neat for building the profil ?

Yes, you would need to create a project/composition and set up all filters in GUI first, and only then you would be able to render the project using the CLI of Nuke.
