    Converting CR2 to DNG via script?

    cmeira Level 1

      Hello,

       

      I want to create a script which converts several CR2 files as DNGs (later to create a drag'ndrop-button for this script).

      It's not possible to record this steps/these steps. Probably because of the "Camera Raw" module which Photoshop uses after opening a CR2 file.

       

       

      Thanks.

      Carlos

          You might be better using the stand-alone free DNG converter from Adobe..

          http://www.adobe.com/products/dng/

          With this you can do a folder of raw files.

          You could even create a batch file do do the convert IE:

          Create a .bat file with something on the lines of..

          For %%a in (c:\CR2\*.cr2) do "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe DNG Converter.exe" -d c:\DNG %%a

           

          This will process all cr2 files in Folder C:\CR2 and convert them to DNG putting them in C:\DNG

           

          Another possibility would be to create a script passing the command line to the app.system() command (CS4/5)

            Strange, that the app.system()-command is undocumented...

             

            But I created a link to "Adobe DNG Converter.exe" in the sendto-folder (using win7). So I can convert my CR2 files by using the context menu and then hitting the enter key -- these few steps are OK for me and more comfortable then using the RAW converter via Photoshop.

             


            Thanks a lot!
