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?
Photoshop batch processing question

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
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.
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+
