[Submission] Make IFL  [SUBMITTED]

Post by SirEdric » Fri Apr 13, 2018 12:44 am

Hi Guys.

Since I use this ToolScript almost on a daily basis, and the question about IFLs came up again on the forum,
I thought this could as well go into Reactor...:-)

[se]Make IFL
Perfect for unnumbered or oddly numbered images that should come in as a sequence in Fusion without renaming the actual files,
this script creates an IFL (Image File List) from all images of the same type within one folder.

Simply load any of the images and run this ToolScript directly on the Loader.

Version 1.2 updated to (theoretically!) work on all platforms, not only Windows.
In lack of any Linux/Mac machine this has not been tested!


Code: Select all

Atom {
	Name = "se_MakeIFL",
	Category = "Scripts/Tool",
	Author = "Eric 'SirEdric' Westphal",
	Version = 1.1,
	Date = {2018, 4, 13},
	Description = [[<h3 align="center"><sup>&#91;se&#93;</sup>Make IFL</h3><p align="center">Perfect for unnumbered or oddly numbered images that should come in as a sequence in Fusion without renaming the actual files,<br>this script creates an <b>IFL</b> (Image File List) from all images of the same type within one folder.<br><br>Simply load any of the images and <b>run this ToolScript directly on the Loader</b>.<br> ]],
	Donation = {
		URL = [[https://www.paypal.me/SirEdric]],
		Amount = "5 €",
	},

	Deploy = {
		"Scripts/Tool/se_MakeIFL.lua",
	},
}

Neat! I'm so used to doing this from CMD I never thought about doing it with lua. Could be adapted to a post-render script for Savers to make IFL's of your output, too.

Ha!
It always depends on how often you have to do it multiplied by the number of colleagues you have to explain this technique to every other day...:-)
Once again, scripting even seemingly simple tasks makes your day better...:-)

And submitted! Works a treat, too :)

:cheer:

PS. if anyone could test this on Linux/Mac and confirm that it works?
