Advanced Exporting

So we've got a really nice helicopter view of all our selects, basically. In one view, like so. So again, we can verify with client or GIF. Now are we happy with these final ones? Yes, I'm delighted. We could put on additional look, or adjustments if we wanted to. But really, now we wanna kind of do some clever stuff, and process them out. And again, this is where we can really sort of see the power of the process recipes in capture one. Because really, we only have to invoke a process once for all our images. So, I don't have to set off three different processes for those three different looks. I set off one process only, and everything else is handled nice and automatic. So, let's say this time we want to have... Let's make another recipe. Lets say we wanna have a TFF. Full size. Like so. And lets say we want to have... a JPEG that is... 2,000 pixels on the long edge. So the longest edge. And long edge is a really handy sort of thing to take, because it doesn't matter is it's a portr...

ait short, or a landscape short. The long edge is gonna get whatever value we put to it. So lets make our recipe for TFF. So far, we're gonna have a TFF 8 bit, uncompressed, Adobe RGB 1998. I'll leave everything else as default in all the other options. Now for my JPEG, I wanna have a JPEG. And we'll just drop the quality down a bit, we wanna have sRGB. And my scaling, long edge, we're gonna change to... 2,000 pixels, like so. So, that gives us two recipes which we can basically run at the same time. Now if I just start running these now, what's gonna happen is that all those images are just gonna pop into the output folder as a collection of TFFs and JPEGs. There have been naming convention, of course. Like look one, look two, look three. So, maybe that's enough for me personally to sort through it. But what is nice, if we can get capture one to automatically build us some different output destinations based on the token that we can use in the output folder as well. So, lets look at a couple of options, and this is something we're gonna explore more in later lessons as well. So output location, the destination is output. Now you see down here, if I just zoom in for you, there's a sub folder field. Now if you remember from almost the very first lesson where we spoke about importing, and we could ask capture one to automatically chop up images based on some metadata, like the date they we're captured. This is exactly the same principle. We can use a token in the sub folder field to ask capture one to automatically create us a new destination. So let's do one option, and then we'll kind of do it all again. So, in sub folder, lets divide it up by recipe name. So again, if I start typing I know there's a token called recipe name, so it brings that up. Course if you're still learning about the different tokens, if you click on the box like so, and we've got all the various tokens down here. And then you can find the one that's called recipe name, or we've got recipe format, which would simply give you TFF, or JPEG, or PNG, or PSD, or whatever. But let's use recipe name, pop that up in there. So we've got two process recipes running, so lets simply say select tool, like so, and then you can either hit the process button, or we just simply say command + D. Now in the process summary it says we're running JPEG 2,000, and one more recipe. We could have 10 recipes running if we wanted to, but for the sake of not watching progress bars, lets just do two. So I've selected all, and now if I say process, and we go to my output folder, you'll see capture one's made a folder called JPEG 2000 px long edge, and TFF full size, like so. The same name of the recipe. Now as those pop in, you see we've got look one, look two, and so on. And down here at the bottom you'll see an indication of how long the process is gonna take. That's now finished. What we didn't see, cause it was too fast, in this tab, the batch tab, you'll see queue of what images are about to be processed. If you realized you've made a huge mistake and you need to stop, you can just stop the queue at any point, and then select the items in the queue and simply delete them. You'll also see a history here of all the various different adjustments that we've made as well. So going back here, we've got our JPEG folder, and our TFF folder like so, but they're all kind of still together, like so. Which maybe isn't a problem, but you might wanna categorize those further. So, let's delete those. Let's delete those, and do something else. So, let's change our token in our output location to something else. So there's a token in here, which is super super useful. I'll just check we're on the right. We've got look one, yeah. Are we looking at... green tag selects, yes. So, we've got a really super useful token in here, which you'll probably never guess what it does by its name, but its called sessions sub path. So, basically what that means is that capture one will see where the original is. So, in this case, we know that this particular original, if I right click on it and say show in finder, lives in a folder called look one. So capture one knows this image lives in a folder called look one. So, what I will do, I will make a sub folder in my output path with exactly the same name. Now if you want to do the same thing again before with the recipe names, we can do so. And again, if you remember from the earlier lesson, we have to use the slash to go down another tree, or another step in the folder tree, we can do so. And now I can use recipe name, like so. So, I'm gonna get a really nice collection of folders in the output thing, which divides it up into the different capture folders, and also the different recipe names. So, let's run two recipes again. Select all, and then rather than having to press the process button, I can just press command + D. So, if we look here under file, you can see process, command + D, like so. And bear in mind, you don't even have to be in this tool tab. Remember, capture one is not modular, so it's neither here nor there, whether I'm in this tool tab, this tool tab, or this tool tab. If I select all and press command + D, capture one will activate whatever process recipe I have checked on. So, let's do that. So, we have selected out nine shots, and lets say command + D to process. Now let's have a quick look at the queue so you can see the images popping in like so. Let's go to our output folder. So now we can see, we've got look one, we've got our JPEGs in there, and our TFFs in there in separate folders. If we go to look two, we've got our JPEGs in there, and TFFs. If we go to look three, we've got our JPEGs in there, and TFFs as well. All at a pretty rapid rate as well. Bearing in mind that was nine images processed as a JPEG and a TFF simultaneously. So, that takes away huge amount of manual sort of lifting, because if I didn't do it that way, what I would have to do is go to my first look, for example. Filter green, select all, start a process for JPEG, then change my process and go to TFF, for example, go to the next look, process them out at JPEGs and TFFs. By doing it in this extremely elegant way, it simply targets the process recipes that you want. Select all, command + D to process, and jobs done.
