PS CS5 Extended requires JPEGS for making an .avi  time lapse video.  is there a way to batch process all my RAW subs and convert the to JPEGS without having to do each one individually?

I think your answer is in "Actions" and Main Menu/File/Automate/Batch

 

I did it before, but so long ago, I cannot remember how.

I keep answering your questions, you pose good ones that I might need, and it sparks good research and digging (I'm a computer nerd, sorting this out is fun for me)

 

Photoshop has "actions", that a pre-recorded steps to execute - a macro in a sense. Lots of folks reference them for imaging/processing. You can make your own.

 

Window -> Actions

Create new

Name it

Click record

Click the steps required to do one frame. Resize if desired, crop, File ->save as... -> *.jpg

 

Practice a few before recording, just to be smooth.

 

Move the files you want to a clean directory - the following is working at a directory level, not an individual file

 

Then go to  File -> Automate -> Batch

Select the source folder

set the output folder if desired - For the save, if you dont override the save to a folder of your choosing, the files will go to where you recorded them.

 

GO

 

The only step I havent sorted yet, is how to skip over the RAW file import/color correction wizard. My approach need a click for every file, that could be super fun after 500+
