This past week I’ve begun work on a feature for Filmulator that makes it much better for occasional users: Import in Place.
As it is now, Filmulator will only read in entire directories of raws, and it copies all of contents into a location you set, as well as to an optional backup. It’s handy for me, the author, because I don’t want to have to move the files and then import into Filmulator, but it’s definitely an obstacle for people who either just want to try the program or who only want to use it for some of their photos.
So, I’m making accommodations.
When you select the alternate buttons “Import Files” and “Import in place”, the UI changes to reflect the new options.
The directory selector is swapped out for a file selector that filters for raw files (in the future, I’ll also make linear TIFF and maybe EXR imports possible).
When importing in place, the destination, backup, and appended hash options disappear because they’re no longer applicable.
I’m not done with the backend yet, but hopefully it’ll be ready within the next week or so…
