Dear Santa! 🙂
I always wanted to work like this:
And the most important thing!! >> It must be available in BATCH mode.
So the desirable outcome is:
Without the "batch" part it is a piece of cake >> you insert a stop >> the action stops... you do smthg and than you click on play again.
BUT!! If you do this on Batch!! The inserted stop action-step stops the BATCH PROCESS ALSO!!!
I tried FILE >> AUTOMATE >> BATCH in every possible way what i can imagine
i tried also >> FILE >> SCRIPTS >> IMAGE PROCESSOR in every way...
no luck yet.
It would be a huge work fastener and simplyfier if we could make it work!
Any ideas dear Santa?!?
Are you sure it helps?
"depending on the taks" >> i did mention one example... (the action creates a mask and i want to use brush on the mask)
any toughts on wich menu item to record....
im familiar with the "record menu item" action step, but still dont see how does it help my main problem !?
anybody? any ideas?
its going to be a huge timesaver for !everybody! if we could make it work!
(if it is not possible yet than we shall speak, with the developers 🙂
so to just make sure we are all aware
its not 2020 and this still doesn't appear to be possible.
please, tell me i'm wrong. explain how this is possible.
I have been wanting this solved for years. There must be a way! I've been using image processor and the same issue - run portraiture and want to be able to brush off effects on hair that's similarly colored to skin. Once you hit the stop in your action, the processor stops. Very frustrating. Anyone have any ideas for a workaround? Thank you in advance.
jazz-y seem to have a batch script that you can use that may work for your workflow.
I have a script that allows you to work both in normal batch mode and to continue operations after stopping (you can set a stop either in the script settings or in the action itself - as convenient). To continue operations after stopping, you need to call the script again (for quick continuation, you can either assign a hotkey to the script in the menu, or write it to an action).
The code is terrible in places, I would like to rewrite many points, but I have no time to do it, however, it has been working in my studio for more than 2 years without any problems and, in combination with actions, allows you to completely replace the standard batch and image processor.
Unfortunately, there is no help file. Most of the functions are intuitive, something can be understood in the process of working with it. The way to solve your problem with it in this video:
Is this still working in 2022? I am getting this error....
Can confirm this script is working perfectly on my Mac running Big Sur — many thanks.
