The command line arguments are:
[project_filename] [-d destination_folder] [-l log_filename] [-js file,file,file -jf format] [-run]
the name of the project file to load
the folder where the DVD files will be written. This name may be either the root name of the DVD
or end with "\VIDEO_TS".
If destination_folder ends in "\VIDEO_TS" the compiled video components will be placed into
that folder, and jacket components, if any, placed into "JACKET_P" at the
same level as "VIDEO_TS". That is "VIDEO_TS" and "JACKET_P" will share the same root.
If destination_folder does not end in "\VIDEO_TS" it will be assumed to be the common root
of the project and the compiled video components will be placed into the sub-folder "VIDEO_TS"
and jacket components into the sub-folder "JACKET_P".
name of the log file for diagnostic messages
jacket source files. Three .bmp or .m2v files of the proper resolutions for the television system.

jacket format. Either F (4:3 full screen) or W (16:9 widescreen). Both -js and -jf must be specified
for JACKET_P to be created. JACKET_P is created on initialization of MuxMan and does not require
This will cause Muxman to run in batch mode. If a project_filename was given it will be compiled.
In all cases MuxMan exits without opening the Graphical User Interface.
If -run is not specified the Graphical User Interface will open.
Muxman can be associated with the file extension ".mxp" to cause it to run in gui mode and load
the project file that was double-clicked
Programs written for the graphical user interface run as a seperate task when started from a
DOS/Command Prompt. Because of this two things happen:
It is not possible for Muxman to write to STDOUT, you must view the log file. One way is to copy
it to STDOUT with the TYPE command.
The command prompt or batch file will not wait for Muxman to complete unless started with START
