    Default Startup Command Line Options

    Good day,

    On page 35 of the SAC64 User Manual, regarding "Startup Command Line Options", which is the more preferable - or does it really matter at all?

    1. Using the Shortcut option, as noted: C:\SAC\SAC.exe D:\Mix-Sessions\Test\Test.mxs
    2. Using a batch file:

    @echo off
    start "" C:\Test\SAC\SAC.exe D:\Mix-Sessions\Test\Test.mxs
    exit

    I tend to use batch files as they permit me to launch both applications. For example:

    @echo off
    start "" C:\RML\SAC\SAC64.exe D:\Mix-Sessions\Test\Test.mxs
    timeout /T 2
    start "" C:\RML\SAW\SAWStudio64.exe D:\Mix-Sessions\Test\Test.edl
    exit

    Anyhow...just curious...

    If you want a starting mix setup... you can always just create a default mix template.

    Personally... I like just letting the program start empty and then loading a starting session from the recent session list option.

    That's what I do.

    Just out of curiosity, is the a way to load a mix template, F-Key template and Preferences all via the command line? I don't need to do that, but I can see how someone might find it useful in certain cases.

    David,

    Startup Command Line Options

    For SAC, see pages 35-36
    Accepts an .mxs filename on the command line when starting up.

    For SAW, see pages 41-42
    Accepts an .edl, .fky, .prf and .wav filenames

    As far as I am able to ascertain, neither SAC or SAW will accept an mxt filename.

    I have had occasion to create a button on the desktop using AutoHotkeys to open SAC in a specific configuration when several people were using the system.

    Angie,

    Remember all of the "neat" scripts that gdougherty and Brett developed a few years back.

    Here is one: Autohotkey SAC Session chooser

    Have not checked out the scripts with the '64's however.

    There's some very clever stuff in there, Dell. Thanks for sharing.
