I’d like to be able to access RawTherapee’s powerful RAW image analysis and manipulation programatically, on timelapse images - for example to de-flicker, exposure adjust, and crop ~1000 images. It wouldn’t be sufficient a single profile to all of the images, as for example a de-flicker requires analysis of the images around it in time.
I think RawTherapee does most of it’s own analysis and manipulation, not relying on many external libraries. Is that correct? Has anyone already done the work to compile it as a library, and wrap it in a scripting language? Does my approach sense-check, or am I barking up the wrong tree entirely?
