(apologies in advance for my english wink

I wonder if it's possible to run a project from the command line, in some kind of "silent mode".

I'd need to use PhotoKey Pro as an step in the proccess of generating a "bullet time" video, where the entire process should be launched by an operator at the touch of a button.

The process would start saving the captures from the in a given directory, then i'd run a PhotoKey project from the command line (the images would be named always in the same way) and then another custom application would create the final video.

A different approach would be some kind of "directory watch", where everything appears in a given directory is processed using a given project.

Thanks in advance!

PhotoKey doesn't support command line control as you describe, unfortunately. I'll pass on your comments to the development team so that they can consider it for future versions.
