"Capture NX2 Batch Processing"


US
          

Hi Nikonians,
I am new here and have a question about batch processing w/ Capture NX2.
I would like to open all the images from my shoot yesterday, perform the white balance change and save them out as Tiffs so Capture will save all the color information to the file.

The only way I have found to do this is open each one and then perform a "save as" which takes a lot of time.

Is there a method for achieving this?

Thanks,

DA

I assume you are batching the white balance change and just want to know how to batch the Save as...

All you do is open the browser in CNX2, select all the files and then click File/Save as... You'll get a dialog box for location, type of file etc. and it will chug through saving them all to your specified location etc.

Unfortunately, I think if you want to apply a white balance change and save your images as TIFs you will have to run two batch jobs. The first to apply the white balance adjustment, and the second to do the "save as". I don't think you can do both of these operations in a single batch job.

I agree. I haven't found a way to to both operations at the same time.

If you save them as a set you can. In the batch menu there is a box for apply settings so if you do one image and then check off the steps you did and save them as a set, you can then batch that whole series of steps in a batch to what ever images you select.

Thanks Bob,
I will try this next. It was great of everyone here, even though I had to run two operations to get this done it still saved me a ton of time and headache to be able to do this in a batch job.
Really guys, you don't know how much you have saved me and taught me on this issue.

I agree that you can apply multiple settings in one batch. What I don't see is how you can combine batching settings with the Save as... command if you want to convert to TIFFs. If you right click the image whose settings you want to batch to other images you get the box that you describe but it seems to me that the Save as... batch step has to be done separately.

If all of the images that you want to "Apply Settings" to and "Save As" TIFF files are placed in the same folder then the two things are possible within the Batch Process.

Menu / Batch / Run Batch Process.

In this case, don't use the Save As... command. Instead:

1. in thumbnail view, select all of the images you want to process
2. Batch->Load Adjustments->mysetting.set

The resultant dialog will offer options on saving as NEF, JPG, TIFF, etc.

The .set file can include any combination of edits including resize, color profile conversion, sharpening, etc.

Thanks everyone for your advice. I finally have the batching under control. Peter, I have not tried that just yet, but it is on my list for the next batch of images to come through, thank you very much.

Again, thanks to everyone here- you guys have been great.

I haven't tried this way of batching settings and saving files, but it seems to me that you will end up with a JPG or TIF with the desired setting while the NEF file will remain unchanged. Depending on your desired results, this may or may not be the behavior you expect or want.

Because of the issue mentioned by Danny, I usually run two separate batches. The first batch runs a group of settings i want to save into my raw files like white balance, custom curve, sharpening, etc. and for this batch I save back into the original NEF.

My second batch for saving into JPG (or Tif) I only typically do output sharpening, fit to size, and colour profile sRGB.

I can concur with that technique.

I have used it regularly for some time. Works well without problem.
