Batch conversion can't get to work

Post by Guest »

Alright, I've search the forum and will start gonit through. I have two issues.

I'm need to conver all the files in a directory from Tif to BMP. I'm trying this commend line:

Nconvert -out bmp *.tif

But it keeps saying "Error: Can't open file (*.tif). Why doesn't this wildcard work?


And two. When I put in "nconvert -help" it scolls through too fast. Is there a page command I can add?

Thanks
Damon

Forgot, I'd also like to delete the original after converting. Is that possible?

Strange wildcard works, i've just checked

Try nconvert -help | more

Got the wildcard to work. Had to upgrade. but the more command, it doesn't recognize. Is there another location I can get a list of the -help?

"-d" didn't work

Nconvert -d -out bmp *.tif

and tried

nconvert -out bmp *.tif -d
