I sent the new batchrender.C file to my friend to tell me where to change
this number and he answered this, saying that you would understand.

diff PATH/cinelerra/batchrender.C
@@ 200
-       warn = 1;
+      warn = 0;

I have gone to line 200 of the file and I have changed it, recompiled and
now it no longer gives the aforementioned error.

With this small change, the assistant is working perfectly from its first
