"Capture NX2 Question"


Edison, US
          

The other day I was processing a bunch of pictures and I used the Batch process to copy some curve adjustments to 25 pictures taken at a party hall. Everything went fine except on some pictures I ended up with an additional copy of the file and in some case more than one copy. I will delete them but not sure how it happened. Looking to avoid the mistake in the future. Has this happened to anyone?
I was using ver2.2.4.

I'll take a guess .

When you ran the batch process you checked the "Include Subfolders" option. You had those images duplicated in the child folders.

NX2 outputs all the images to a single folder. It appends a tie breaker suffix to the file name to avoid duplication from the child folders.

I've always thought NX should output to the same folder structure, specifically to avoid this problem but it doesn't. And because it doesn't, I generally do not use the "Include Subfolders" option because my workflow results in dups in the child folders. NX should have an option labeled something like "preserve input folder structure in output folder".

Thanks, Neil. I din't think I checked the subfolders option. Was just looking at some older threads and saw an explanation, as someone else noticed this issue. At the end of the thread below is an explanation.

I think I've had that problem myself, triggering a copy operation when I'm in the middle of selecting images. That explanation was helpful because I wasn't sure what shortcut I executed that started the copy
