I am using the screen recorder that comes with CS 7.1.

I am trying to fully script the screen recording so I can have a user launch and stop the recorder with no interaction required by them other than selection start recording and stop recording bat files.

I am able to start the recording ok with a bat file but when stopping the recording I just want the file saved as specified in the options and the recorder to exit with no preview or other unwanted effects but I cant figure out how to do this.

Is there a way to stop / save / exit transparently from the command line ?
It kind of defeats the purpose of scripting if you cant it would seem.

Also when I start the recorder from the command line the icon does not show up in the system tool tray or task bar so there is no way to see that recording is on. Is there an option to turn that on ?

thanks

Hello,

There is a file called autocam.bat located in your install folder which documents all the command line switches CS provides, you may check it out and see if you may find what you want.

Thanks,

Kevin
