Aftereffects SG Bootstrap


I’m trying to bootstrap the tk-aftereffects engine following the bootstrap guide here

When I run the after_effects_cc_2022 command, Aftereffects is opened but the SG extension is stuck waiting for the python process to run forever, as shown by the console:

js Executing command: C:\Program Files\Shotgun\Python\python.exe C:\Users\nathalia.borin\AppData\Roaming\Shotgun\bundle_cache\app_store\tk-framework-adobe\v1.1.3\python\tk_framework_adobe_utils\ 55161 tk-aftereffects AEFT

Should this work out of the box, or do I need to do something else in order to load the extension?

An update here: running with the TK_DEBUG environment variable set revealed the reason was an authentication issue:

py Requesting password on command line.

I thought this wouldn’t be necessary since I’m authenticating with a script user during the bootstrap…
