launching RV with single audio layer under sequence

Hi I was hoping I could get some advice on the best way to launch an rv session with a sequence of mov files with one single mov file underneath for the audio. Currently we are launching rv using the shell scripts. For example:

rv [ movie1.mov -in 5 -out 25 ] [ movie2.mov -in 4 -out 22 ] [ movie3.mov -in 5 -out 35 ]

So now if I wanted to add movie4.mov but just as an audio source to play underneath the whole of the sequence above, I'm not sure of the best way to approach this. It doesn't seem like I can build stacks and layers with the rv shell script, so I'm assuming I'd have to build an rv session and save it in a file. Then launch rv to open that saved rv session file. 

Is it possible to set up a sequence and stack in this way, using a single mov underneath a sequence as an audio layer? And if so, is it possible to build an rvSession using the rvSession.py module with a python script that is running externally from rv?

    Hi Cameron,

    There isn't really a good way to achieve that goal from the command line. The issue is that in order to add a single movie file as an audio source you would need to add it as a second input to a stack where the first input is the sequence of movies 1 through 3. There isn't currently a way to do that on the command line.
    You can either do that interactively in RV or by programmatically assembling a session file with rvSession.py and then passing that to RV.
