Question possible to specify cover scheme at command line conversion?

Hi,

Is there a way to specify the cover scheme when converting using CLI?

I know I can select a cover by image/URL, or use the default cover scheme but I'd like to use specific colours for different book genres (whilst still using the meta text).

Is it possible?

Thanks!

No, there is no command line interface for cover generation. Your best bet is to import all the files into the calibre GUI, and then use the bulk metadata dialog to generate the covers for them using whatever settings you like.
