        Hi Dave, yes that would help me to see "Exactly" what you mean and not miss something important. If you get the time I would appreciate because that's what I need now: a visual for an interface concept.

        Hmm, a simple thumbnail interface would be good - just small thumbs that you can match up and then hit 'generate' to set it churning through them all...?

        Let me know if a diagram/UI mockup would help and I'll doodle something in a spare moment!

        Oh yes it does.

        "Droplet" program: I love programs that just work without asking questions.
        --> What about droping a set of files or an entire directory?

        Command line: The good thing about command lines is that it's reasonably simple to program. But I never use them. As a user I want cool interfaces. That will only be a bonus for programmer and scripters.
        You're the first to ask for command lines ;-) Let me add that as a new function if you haven't already. It's not quite the same as having batch processing. It might get some new feed back as solo item. thks for writing!

        Photosculpt.exe -front "c:\image1.jpg,image2.jpg" -right "c:\image3.jpg,image4.jpg" -output "c:\output_folder\output_file" -obj -depth -normal -spec -diff -occ -lod 0 -minimum

        when Photosculpt is ran with the argument "-minimum", only a progress bar will show (that can be minimized), saving some memory by not showing the geometry and images on screen.

        A separate program that can provide a nice simple interface to communicate with the main photosculpt command line parameters. 2 drag&drop lists to add and organize images. Save options available in the main app.

        Have this separate batch program be able to work in "droplet" mode.
        example:
        1) save export options in main program or separate program. and set exported options file as default options to be loaded whenever the separate program is loaded.
        2) select files in particular order (front_image_01.jpg, right_image_02.jpg, front_image_03.jpg,right_image_04.jpg, etc) and drag&drop them over the icon of the separate program.
        3) separate program automatically loads default export settings and processes images.
        without any questions. just drag&drop and process.

        With command line arguments, it opens the possibility to be run from another program, ie photoshop through a script.

        Just some ideas, I hope this makes some sense.
