Batch processing utility "Fat Batch"

This is a small utility app, used for speeding up frame by frame editing in any application.

Basically, if you have a series of incremented file names (eg. pic001.jpg, pic002.jpg, pic003.jpg) , you can open the next one by just hitting a button on fat batch, without having to go and find it yourself. You can scroll backwards and forwards through numbers, set a file name, file extension and the number of digits in the increment.

Heres how to use it.

Type in a file path and the name of the file (not including the increment number and file extension) into the top edit box

In the lower middle edit box, set a number of digits in your increment number (eg. 006 would be 3 digits)

Type a file extension into the bottom right box (eg. ".jpg"

Press "open" to open the next file in the list

Press the scroll <</>> buttons to scroll forwards and back.

If you want to go direct to a frame number, type it's number into the bottom left edit box. This is a little faulty but you'll have to get around that i'm afraid.


Hope you find it useful.


P.S. here is a working link if DC has done the old Caps screwwup on me:
