Scripting the rendered world.

It seems that there is an increasing number of customers using primarily computer generated sources. Customers are showing up with large number of Targa (TGA) or TIFF sequences and trying to work out the real-time editing work-flow. Although Premiere and After Effect happily import TGA sequences it becomes a very labor intensive task to convert tens or hundreds of sequences into separate AVIs. So I have been working on a simple shell tool to help batch convert image sequences CineForm Intermediate AVIs. This was is an off shoot of the work required by Pixel Havest (Lbs project); a version of this tool now runs on the film scanner. This is in an alpha version today, but I will make it available to Prospect HD customers upon request. Feedback is welcome.
