Command line reference

How to use

  • You can access the CLI by running npx remotion inside a npm project using remotion, yarn remotion inside a yarn project and pnpm exec remotion inside a pnpm project. For compactness, in the documentation we always say npx remotion.
  • Inside an npm script, you don't need the npx prefix.


The following commands are available - you can always run them using npx remotion or even without the npx prefix if you put the command inside an npm script.

Example command

npx remotion render --codec=vp8 HelloWorld out/video.webm
npx remotion render --codec=vp8 HelloWorld out/video.webm autocompletion

Install Fig (macOS only) to add Remotion autocomplete to your terminal. Type npx remotion to start get suggestions.
