PowerShell Scripting

StaxRip can be automated via PowerShell scripting.

Events

In order to run scripts on certain events the following events are available:

  • ProjectLoaded After Project Loaded
  • JobProcessed After Project Processed
  • VideoEncoded After Video Encoded
  • BeforeJobProcessed Before Job Processed
  • AfterSourceLoaded After Source Loaded
  • ApplicationExit Application Exit
  • ProjectOrSourceLoaded After Project Or Source Loaded
  • JobsEncoded After Jobs Encoded

Assign to an event by saving a script file in the scripting folder using the event name as file name.

The scripting folder can be opened with:

Main Menu > Tools > Scripts > Open script folder

Use one of the following file names:

  • ProjectLoaded.ps1
  • JobProcessed.ps1
  • VideoEncoded.ps1
  • BeforeJobProcessed.ps1
  • AfterSourceLoaded.ps1
  • ApplicationExit.ps1
  • ProjectOrSourceLoaded.ps1
  • JobsEncoded.ps1
