We're happy to announce that Retrobatch 1.2 has now been released, which is a free update for all owners of Retrobatch. Highlights of this release include:

  • Create animated GIF and PNG images with the Animated Image node. When using Retrobatch you can load in a folder of images and produce an optimized animated image with options for setting the frame rate, format, as well as letting the image loop or not.

  • New nodes including "Round Corner", "Image Grid", and "Limit". We've also added improvements to the Write node allowing you to write back to the original processed image.

  • Droplet support (Retrobatch Pro). Turn your workflow into an an application which you can drag and drop images onto. The droplet can work anywhere an application normally would, even in the Dock.

  • Write Plug-Ins using JavaScript (Retrobatch Pro). Using the combined power of JavaScript and the native to MacOS Cocoa APIs, you can make and distribute new plugins for Retrobatch. Got an idea for a plug-in and you want to use Core Image to make it? Or maybe you want to use Core Graphics to add some funky text to your images? Now you can do this with JavaScript and Cocoa.

The full release notes are available, as well as information on bug fixes we delivered in this update.

As always, we're always listening for feedback and feature requests. And don't forget to head over to the Retrobatch community formus to chat with us and other Retrobatch users.
