Multithreaded export / command line version of ON1RAW

Exporting images from ON1 is quite slow and blocks the program completely.

As a reasonable easy to implement solution I, I suggest to create some kind of temporary “batch file” with all the export recopies in it, once export is launched. That batchfile is then sent to a different instance of the ON1 program (which does not show the complete UI, just the progress) to process all the images, while the user can continue to work.

Due to the approach with the “batch file” it would be even possible to modify the settings of images which are about to be processed.

This suggestion should be much easier to be implemented than a full threaded export with all the file locking which would be required.

The export application can be the regular ON1 program or, better, a simplified one, which just does processing without UI. Such a UI less version could be also a unique tool for other needs, such as script controlled export of images if it would just understand a minimum of command line parameters.

    Agree, sometimes the program freezes for more than one minute during background export.
    The Progress bar is not really visible, the progress bar is too small and disappears often.

    I do not care how it is realized, but I want to see the progress of the export clearly and as an idea a limitation of the resources that the background process uses.

    I like this. Can’t speak to ON1 2018, as I have only used the 2019 version for exporting a batch of photos, but I was dismayed at the time taken by On1 to accomplish this. Easily 3 to 5X the cycle time for LR to do the same thing to the same folder.

    Agreed, make this available to the new 2019 or at least a background export and while at it attribute shortcuts to them either (cmd+E) to normal export and (cmd+shit+e) or cmd+alt+e) to export in the background this for sure would be much easier and faster for everyone.

    +1 should be done in the background as there’s no user interaction required.

    Learn by DxO…
    In Photolab (and all DxO Optics versions from version “very long time ago”), there is possible to choose how many threads (CPU and GPU) to use for export…
