Need to work out how I can create 32 bit TIFF files in a batch
In Photomatix, I can create .HDR and .EXF files in batch - then one by one convert them by opening and doing a "save as" in Photomatix
This is a right ball ache and no use/advance on my workflow...
So does anyone know of a batch program that can either
1 - Convert EXR/HDR files to 32 bit tiff
2 - Blend bracketed TIFF files into a 32 bit floating tiff straight off...
I'll check this when I get back from the pub - early start today

Well I can't help, but primarily because I don't understand the term 'floating' in the context of 'floating tiff'. Could you clarify Ade ..
I think Ade missed the 'point'.
umm - i'll try elsewhere and report back then]
Couple of ideas to try
There's more, just search for keywords like: automate Windows programs macros etc
yeah - guess that could work... just wondering if there are HDR programs which can batch-produce the TIFFs really... you can do it manually in Photoshop and Photomatix, but if you've got 1000 shots to get through, as I oten have, that's not really an option...
hmmm.... the search goes on
anyone know of HDR programs which do batch processing other than Photomatix?
HDR Expose does it
god knows what you're supposed to do - tried it 10 times, doing what appears to be all the right things, and it does bugger all
Hmmm - it's working to a point
get "Tiff write error" on every batch it tries to create - can create other HDR files, but no TIFFS... is that windows being rubbish I wonder?
I asked HDR soft about these files - Photomatix supports them but.....
Quote: Unfortunately, 32-bit TIFF files are much larger than other HDR formats (the file size is 12 times the size of the image in pixels; for example, images from a Nikon D800 result in a floating point TIFF that is 430MB). Even with a warning, we consider saving such large files to be too risky an action to allow an automated process that could potentially process thousands of files to do.
They've invited me to beta test some plugin or other for Lightroom 4... so will see what transpires.
looks like the dream of creating a whole folder of 32 bit tiffs whilst I have a brew is just that, a dream....
Oloneo has batch porocessing but I do not batch process myself so cannot tell you if it will do what you want.
