Command Line Interface

You can run Wrap from the command line. To do that, go to the directory where Wrap is installed. Then type in the command line:

# for Windows
WrapCmd.exe [options] <command> [<args>]

# for Linux
./ [options] <command> [<args>]


-?, -h, --help:

Display a list of supported options, commands, environment variables

-v, --version:

Display WrapCmd version

-l, --license:

Display details of the license state

-n, --nodes:

Display list of nodes in current WrapCmd

-f, --format:

Display current Wrap project file format version



Compute a frame range from the Wrap project


Activate nodelocked license from a file


Activate floating license by host and port

Type -?, -h or --help after a command name to get help on a specific command:

WrapCmd <command> --help

After the command is computed the process exits with one of the following codes:

Exit code 0


Exit code 1

Invalid arguments

Exit code 2

Failed to compute

Exit code 3

Invalid license

Exit code >3

Other specified error

Environment variables

WrapCmd supports gallery dir, license and OpenGL disabling variables. Check Environment Variables for details. To clarify exact flags type ./WrapCmd --help.


Loads a project from a *.wrap file and computes the node-graph for specific frames. All Saving nodes will write data to files. All nodes with Auto-compute option will compute regardless of the option’s value. All errors will be printed in the standart output.


WrapCmd compute <projectFile> [options...]



a project *.wrap file path. If the path contains spaces please use double quotes.


-s, --startFrame:

Sets the first frame of the rendering sequence. If not set, start frame is assumed to be 0

-e, --endFrame:

Sets the last frame of the rendering sequence. If not set, end frame is assumed to be equal to the start frame

-f, --frames:

Set the rendering sequence to custom frame range entered in a format 1,5,10-20. If using spaces be sure to add quotes: "1, 5, 10-20".

-i, --interactive:

Enters an interactive mode, awaiting for next frame number of range to be entered. Finishes on recieving exit input.

-m, --maxThreads:

Sets the max number of threads per process

-v, --verboseTimestamps:

Show timestamps of begin and end of each node computation


If set, than repeatedly waits for entering a frame number to compute in the standart input instead. Type exit to close interactive mode and exit.


WrapCmd compute "C:\Projects\Project.wrap"

Will compute the node-graph at frame 0.

wrapCmd compute "C:\Projects\Project.wrap" --startFrame 1

Will compute the node-graph at frame 1.

wrapCmd compute "C:\Projects\Project.wrap" -s 1 -e 7 -m 8

Will compute the node-graph starting from frame 1 to frame 7 with 8 threads at max.

wrapCmd compute "C:\Projects\Project.wrap" -f 1-10,20,25 -m 4

Will compute the node-graph starting from frame 1 to frame 10, frames 20 and 25, with 4 threads at max.
