Hey, everyone. If anyone can point me in the right direction, it would be vastly appreciated and warrant internet cookies (the good kind that grandma used to make).
I'm working on a 3D project right now that has animation rendered at 60 FPS as individual images. All of these images receive the same treatment:
The image is duped.
The duped layer is set to Overlay mode.
The duped layer is desaturated to grayscale (using Hue-Saturation)
The duped layer is given 60% layer opacity.
A new layer is added, given a bucket fill of a certain color.
The new color layer is set to Overlay mode.
All of this is saved as a new image and GIMP is allowed to merge the visible layers on its own.
In and of itself, this process only takes a few minutes. However, I'm looking at editing over 1,000 images by the time I'm done...
I'd really like to make my job a little easier.
One little thing I would like to do is be able to process an entire folder rather than just on an image-by-image basis. Basically as little user interaction possible.
If anybody happens to know of some pre-existing scripts that I could use as-is, or help me figure out some way to merge multiple scripts together to basically achieve the above functions I would be eternally indebted to your immortal soul. I don't mind writing my own script, but considering my "computer language" is only advanced enough to scream at the monitor and cry over my inevitable defeat at the hands of my unfeeling electronic overlord help would be much appreciated.
