setting exportimage compression


    Apr 07 2005 | 7:48 pm
    Hi,
    i need to save many tiffs in a folder, and I counted on the 'exportimage' message to a jit.matrix to do this. Only thing is that I need to set the compression to 'none' or the equivalent.
    Exportimage gives me a choice between the default settings (with compression) or forcing a dialog for each tiff. I use it to render large image files, one for each frame of a (35mm) film, so setting the compression manually for each frame is not an option. If I set it once manually, the settings don't 'stick' for the subsequent frames, and I'd rather do it programmatically anyway, so that I can't forget to set it..
    Is there another aproach I could think of which gives me large series of uncompressed tifffs ? I tried saving one-frame-movies from jit.qt.record, but those give me quicktime movie-files, not tiff files, and those won't do, even if they contain the right data.
    Can I change the (default) settings for exportimage somehow ?
    help GREATLY appreciated, thanks,
    Joost.

      I have the exact same question (and need). I would like to automatically store images from a jit.matrix as TIFF files with the option "256 grays". I will export lots of files, so going through the dialog is not a good option. Has this been implemented, or could it be?
      Thanks, Alexander
