how to record macro for "development persona" to run on a batch

Recommended Posts

Hi,
I am trying to batch process a set of files. I like to convert RAW files to TIFF and be able to set various pre-recorded (marco) parameter that are available in the development persona (things like Development Assistant and basic,lens,details,tones)

My challenge is that I cannot see how I can record a macro under the development persona. I know how to do it under Photo persona (->view ->studio ->macros) but cannot see how to record the parameters I want to control in development persona (only not Photo persona) and then run onto a batch of files.

Under Development Persona if you go to ->view ->studio there is no macros options.

An actual example would be much appreciated

thank you

Arnim

Useful Info we always need.
What OS are you on? Mac or Windows and what version of Affinity Photo are you using.

Until Affinity Photo can do Batch RAW processing you would be better to look at a substitute app until such time as Affinity can implement Batch processing of RAW files. As far as I am aware Affinity Photo cannot Create Macro's in Develop Persona.

Thanks for your response "firstdefence". I am using macOS 10.13.5 and Affinity 1.6.7.

What substitute app do you use (or might recommend)  to convert raw files in a batch while being able to define ahead of time  some key aspects for the conversion?

I'm fairly certain (not quite 100% but very nearly) that the Macros features won't be available while in the Develop Persona. Although it might be cool to have this function, this makes sense. Even Photoshop won't run macros / actions while you're working on the RAW data.

Thanks for the responses.

Let me re-frame my question with a simple example:

How to I apply e.g.  Detail Refinement to a batch of raw photos?

 

 

there must be a way to do this since it is such a common a basic task, is it not?
