Command Line - progress reporting and dmap naming?

Hi there, I'm back to work on some automation wrappers around the command line interface for HeliconFocus.exe. Overall, it works well, but I'm now trying to make my automation layers more sophisticated and I'm bumping into some limitations. Specifically I have two questions (or, requests disguised a...

Paid gig for focus stacking experts - work from home

Image stacking is a great technique but it often requires tweaking the parameters of the stacking program, trying different modes, trying different programs (Zerene versus Helicon), slab stacking and so forth. Finally, some manual editing can also be required with Photoshop or Lightroom. I am workin...

Re: Trouble with -i parameter in CMD line mode

Thanks very much for the quick response. Unfortunately, my scenario requires the "-silent" mode, so I suppose I'll need to continue pre-grouping my shots by folder for now. I'd love to be able to pass in file names directly, or via a text file with the -i parameter so I can programatically...

Trouble with -i parameter in CMD line mode

I've built a few scripts to help with my massive batch processing of image stacks using the command line mode of Helicon. It's a lifesaver! As soon as I've added a little extra validation to my scripts, I'd be happy to share them with the community. I'm having trouble with the "-i" paramet...

Re: Guidance for massive batch processing

Awesome! I'm on Windows and would love to try a version with the update. Thanks for the tip on .DNG! My research with performance so far has been limited to a few trials and some unscientific time measurement... but I'll make more formal performance recordings with my next batch-process and send you...

Re: Guidance for massive batch processing

Thank you so much for the feedback and guidance! I'm thrilled to see that these issues are on your radar already. It looks like the command line path could be a great solution for me. However, I don't see tips on syntax for saving as DNG. Is this supported from the command utility and, if so, can yo...

Guidance for massive batch processing

I love that Helicon has a Batch process feature, but I may be asking a little too much of it and I'm experiencing some issues in return. I'm attempting to batch-stack 1500 folders, each of which contain 6 images to stack. In theory, the batch UI should be able to do this. In practice, here are the i...
