[BUG] Recursive actions instead of source files treatment

Post by Corrigans » Thu Mar 07, 2019 6:14 pm

Hi,

I'm using XnConvert since several months but occasionnaly, i've got a problem that became persistent a few weeks ago.
I supposed it was a bug because it's not the normal fonction of XnConvert but maybe I'm wrong and I didn't check an option box.

Screens below were on v1.79 but I reproduced the same bug on v1.80.

Basically, I want to extract the same part of 6 pictures files (named A, B, C, D, E, F for this example) by using a script.
The result must be :
Result_A_01.png
Result_B_01.png
Result_C_01.png
Result_D_01.png
Result_E_01.png
Result_F_01.png

These files are placed in a specific result directory but the bug is the same if I these files are placed in the source directory.

Instead of these actions, XnConvert work on the previous result instead of the next source file.
It create these files :
Result_A_01.png
Result_Result_A_01_01.png
Result_Result_Result_A_01_01_01.png
...

in an endless loop.

Thanks for your work and I hope if you'll find a solution !

Olivier

No, i'm not using this.

On the XnConvert Input tab at bottom left, there is a Hot folders... button, you have no folders entered there?

Note :

In some language versions the text label may potentially cause confusion, a while back 'Favorites' in the local language was used.

A clearer name is 'Watched folder' as nominated folders are continuously monitored for newly arrived files, which are processed immediately.

Thanks a lot, that was exactly that. I disabled the hotfolders ("Dossiers Contrôlés" for me) and it works.
So, it was not a bug but I don't remember when I enabled this option... :?

Thanks again !
