npx remotion compositions

Available from v2.6.12.

Print list of composition IDs based on a path of an entry point.

npx remotion compositions <entry-file>
npx remotion compositions <entry-file>

If entry-file is not passed, Remotion will try to detect the entry file with the following priority order:

  1. Get the path from the Config (Can be set using Config.Preview.setEntryPoint("<entry-point>")).
  2. Look for some common paths i.e. src/index.ts, src/index.tsx, src/index.js, remotion/index.js.
  3. Fail as entry point could not be determined.



React Props that can be retrieved using getInputProps(). Must be a serialized JSON string (--props='{"hello": "world"}') or a path to a JSON file (./path/to/props.json).


Inline JSON string isn't supported on Windows because it removes the " character, use a temporary file instead.

Specify a location for a dotenv file. Default .env. Available in v2.2 and later.
