Batch Conversion Options

There is an extensive list of options for conversion, and their definitions are provided below.

Convert from

The first step is to select the type of files that you want to use for input. The option you choose changes the conversion options on the form.

Batch Convert From

Include the following file types

You can check or uncheck file types from the list so that only files that match particular file extensions are included for conversion. For example, if you uncheck all types except ".bmp - Bitmap Image File," then only *.bmp files are converted.

Use these conversion options

This part of the form specifies how you want your input files to be converted to output files. The options differ based on which "Convert from" option you choose. Use the tooltips on the form for specific information about the options.

Convert these files and folders

You can include both folders and files in the list of items to convert. You can either drag and drop files and folders from Windows Explorer or click the Add Files... and Add Folders... button to populate the list. All folders in the list are searched for matching files. See the "Include subfolders" option for details on subfolder searching.

When you check "Rename files" and click the Settings... button, you are presented with a renaming options window. There are two different ways output files can be renamed from their corresponding input files, either by using a filename counter or by applying add/replace options.

Saving and Loading Batch Presets (.fvp Files)

You can save your batch conversion options as presets by choosing File → Save Presets..., and you can save them by choosing File → Load Presets... Presets are saved with the .fvp file extension ("File Viewer Plus") and contain the options you selected for the entire form, including options in the file renaming window. You can save any number of presets to reuse them at a later time.
