Developer Belle Nuit Montage has released Imagefilter, an application that batch processes sequences of images. You can use it to build process trees and add branches that import images, apply color correction to them, lay filters over them, add effects and more. You can import images from QuickTime movies, PDFs, or many of the most popular formats as well as import text files that can be merged with your graphics. Imagefilter defines its projects as XML files, allowing them to be automated for production purposes. You can download a demo, limited to 512 x 384-pixel output, from the Belle Nuit Montage Web site. Licenses are US$120 each, or $600 for a site, and system requirements call for Mac OS X v10.2 or higher and a G4 or G5 processor.
