psd>><mental>>images

a simple set of scripts for photoshop to export your current document directly to the mentalimages imf_copy utility. it support also .psd to be translated on the fly, copy to all the host involved into the net for instant tests on DR, and a mass converter to get a whole folder out to .map pictures.
I added the maya imf_copy path, the chance to append any format to the imf_copy, alpha support and a more robust file checking for hosts failures.

indeed.. me !! and every time I run it !!


Quote: just cant figure it out

it is simply that it cannot find the imf_copy executable.
did you read first the instruction and so ran first the
ExportMemoryMapSettings ?

is their any chance this script would work with ps 7 ?
i didn't find preset -> scritps..

as long it has a script folder it will work by
pointing to that folder the .js script. I'm
assuming that psd7 is using the same object
model of CS, but I'm not sure about this.

Yeb I ran it and I can run the imf_copy from anywhere through commandline.
The imf_copy path is = c:\program files\alias\maya6.5\
just the normal one and it gives me that the path is ok

thanx for the reply

This is just amazing, exactly what I was looking for. I hate cmd and things like that. Thanks a lot!

But of course I'm failing and I get the same result as "Shine77".

Script: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop CS\Presets\Scripts\topmap\wshRun-imf_copy.vbs
Line: 200
Char: 4
Error: the system cannot find the file specified.
Code: 80070002

All the paths seems to be ok (at least it says so) so I can't understand whats wrong.

But it does write a file, a .tif file (even though I choose .map and I get an error massage)

I have tried to force convert the .tif file simply by changing the extension to .map and It seems to work. At least I can render the image, but I don't know if the file benefits from the .map features.

Anyhow, if someone knows how to fix this I would be very grateful.

well check manually the path the script is using.

open your winexplorer and rightclick on MyComputer
selecting Properties, then goto the Advanced tab and
click EnvironmentVariables. on the UserVariablesFor..
find the IMF_DIR and look if it has a slash \ at the end.
if not add it.

dunno why it is not working for you directly from the
MemoryMapSetting script as it checks automatically
for the slash at the end, I recently installed CS2 and
did the usual procedure for myself too and no problems
at all nor I can replicate your problem actually. btw
try the above solution it should fix it.

I hunted that problem down: it's the spaces in your folder names. If there is any in your maya installation directory (like C:\Program Files\Alias\Maya6.5), it wont find the file.

Temporary solution: put the imf_ tools into any directory that has no blank spaces, like 'C:\temp\imf_disp\bin\'. The 'bin' is important because the script searches for a subfolder called bin.

Trust me, it works! Thanks Francesca!

edit: When using the 'Export Memory Map Settings' from within photoshop, simply point it to, for example 'C:\temp\imf_disp\' - not to 'C:\temp\imf_disp\bin\'

thx floze for the bug fixing. I will fix it in a near future.



Quote: I wonder if ther is a command that you can do to run the conversion to an entire folder
ashaiad, did you try to look just down the ExportMemoryMapImage script ?
if I understand what you mean the ExportMemoryMapMass should do the trick..
converting a whole folder of valid images to .map files.
