Can NConvert create directories?

Post by Christian72D »

I found a project someone started with irfanview as a batch tool.
The problem is: Irfanview stops if it finds an unreadable jpeg.

Now i want to make the whole thing with nconvert (i hate Irfanview).
The problem is: with irfanview i can create directories wihile creating jpeg:

Code: Select all

"%iview%" /filelist=%randomNumber%_filelist_xl.txt /resize_long=%sizeL% /aspectratio /convert="$D\SYNOPHOTO%%3ATHUMB_L.jpg" /filepattern="*.jpg" /jpgq=%jpgq% /silent /cmdexit %extraquality%
When i switch it to nconvert it says that its not able to write the file.

Code: Select all

"%iview%" -l %randomNumber%_filelist_original.txt -resize %sizeXL% 0 -q %jpgq% -ratio -o %target%\%randomNumber%\@eaDir\%%\SYNOPHOTO__3ATHUMB_XL.jpg 
Did i miss a switch?

Looks like there is an other problem: nconvert has the same problem with "non standard"-characters, it can´t read/or write them.

If i have a filename with a german "Umlaut" like "ä ö ü ß" and so on i get an error.

Is THIS also fixable?

It looks like it can´t find the picture because of the <SPACE>. :(
When i convert a unicode File by hand it works, from filelist it does not.

I have a little package for you with some files an a little batch, you can download it from my server:

If i take a look at the liste.txt created by the .bat, the filename are bad
If i create by myself the .txt, nconvert works...
