Is There a Way to Pause Until Process Finished!

Hi all,

So I'm working on a macro that help me and my team export a video whenever we finish a project, name it, create folders, etc. The thing is that we normally have to do two videos, so what I use is Pause Until "Video Export..." window is not at the front in Cubase, which is the program we use.

This works pretty decent but, I was wondering if there is a way to tell keyboard maestro to pause until the process "export video..." (maybe from the activity monitor or something), then we would be able to do other actions at the same time KM is waiting for the process to finish, and then it will jump to keep doing the rest of the macro.

I upload an image of the pause actions I use and the complete macro, although the macro is pretty fucking long, so its probably useless.

Thank you very much in advance.

I usually use a Pause Until action with a Path > Exists condition, meaning, pause until the video exists, which waits until the file is done writing before being seen as true (in my experience.)
