Anyone know of a free tool that will let me create a blink video from my fuji RAW files for the purpose of weeding out bad frames?  I have tried ASTAP, but it cycles through the images far too slow, I can scroll through them in finder and have them load quicker...

I'd be interested in this as well.

I don't know of a Fuji RAW blink video tool, but Lynkeos will do sub alignment, analysis and rejection. I haven't had much luck with Canon .CR2 RAW files (Lynkeos chokes on them), but I use RawTherapee 5.8 to calibrate and output the RAWs into to TIFF files. Lynkeos has no problems with TIFF files.

The question was about blinking files.

I guess I don't follow.

 

Technically, the question was about a blink video. But it refers to scrolling through files with the Finder. This is what Lynkeos does.

 

If I wanted to make a blink video, I would export to PNGs and use APNG Assembler. Like this:

Otherwise, the only tool I have on my Mac that will allow you to "blink" between RAW files quickly is the RAW importer for Photoshop.

Well I was able to open the RAF files in Lynkeos, but the export as movie option doesn't seem to do anything sadly...

I've never gotten that function to work either.
