XnConvert start option @filelist

Post by panathos »

There is a way to automatic XNconvert when used with "XNconvert @filelist" ?

Another request: automatic close is OK, but please remove the sound (or give an option to remove)

Thanks

I believe that XnConvert supports the XnView MP filelist start option indicated below:

So you would seem to need to insert the missing '-' sign shown.

I'm not sure how many of the XnView MP command line options shown above are supported in XnConvert, as far as I know it has never been documented, perhaps those supported should be shown in the About tab.

Can someone else help with that?

My working syntax to load all files in filelist.txt with my XNconvert (1.95) is :

Code: Select all

xnconvert.exe @filelist "filelist.txt"
XNconvert load all images, but does'nt start conversion.
To start conversion needed to press "convert" button. Currently I'm using little autoit script to detect window and send the "start" command (Alt+C "!c" in autoit send() syntax).
Best would be an autostart option.

To get rid from closing bell, setting system audio notification to zero.


So, about your suggestion, in my XConvert this syntax

Code: Select all

d:\scoop\apps\xnconvert\current\xnconvert.exe -filelist "filelist.txt"
load only first file in list.

Hint: With thousand of file to convert, XNconvert in multithread mode is the fastest solution found to convert images in webp with my selected parameters.

The following fairly recent post does indicate that the XnConvert @filelist form you are using is supported, whereas the XnView MP format I posted above does refer to loading a filelist in XnView MP browser mode, so not equivalent.

It doesn't seem clear whether conversion should be initiated immediately, or whether only the files in the filelist are loaded to the Input tab, and again perhaps the option should be documented somewhere in addition to the XnConvert 1.95 change list.
