I'm writing a Python script that creates a Blender scene; I'm running it from the command line with
blender -P script.py. However, the splash screen always appears and it's really annoying. Is there something I can do from the script that prevents the splash screen from showing up for just that invocation of Blender? Note that I do not want to change the global preference.
The tooltip over the user preferences splash screen setting recommends
bpy.types.UserPreferencesView.show_splash, but changing this from my script doesn't seem to do anything.
