thanks a lot Dmilligan.

I thought i had to install something else to make it work...maybe i do.

i tried it now and got this message...





sorry to bother..and do try to figure it out...but my head will explote soon...going out to shoot another timelapse just now..will do more testing soon.

I do have something to figure out..after all deflicker is done I am doing the export DNG --> after effect--> prores  but somehow i get flicker movie after all of this...if i do export to jpg from LR it looks good..so i am guessing something on the dng are wrong...if anyone has a clue it will save me 40 hours of trying...hehehe..thank you.

For Windows I can't help you. You'll have to compile libjpeg yourself and put djpeg.exe in the plugin folder.

this script is now the basis of my timelapse workflow.  I love it.  Is it possible to add dehaze to the script?

Can someone assist with compiling libjeg for Windows? I would like to try it as well but have no idea how to do this nor any programming-type software. I just shot a timelapse sunrise to donate to my town for marketing and would like it to look as good as possible.

Thanks Walter. I just downloaded the Windows binary from there and put it in the deflick.plugin folder. I still get the "Unsupported PPM format - Expected a binary RGB (P6)" error when attempting to apply them to my DNG files.

Is this script expecting a different version of or not work with DNGs?

Looking at the file, this appears to be a 2005 version of djpeg, version 6.2.1961.25445 if it matters.
I'm on 64 bit Windows 7 with Lightroom 6.5.

[Edit: the setup program doesn't seem to work so I only copied over the .exe. There is also a dependencies folder with a dll. I copied that into system32 but it still doesn't work]

If there is anything I can do to help troubleshoot this with LR 6, please let me know and I'll do my best.

I will try to reproduce your issue (Win7/8.1 and LR 2015 CC) but it will take some time.

No problem at all. Let me know if there's anything I can do as a user to be helpful.

Hello!

I just saw that dmilligan ported the deflickering script to Lightroom. My question is: is there any advantage in running it instead of using the Bridge version? The main one I can think of would be speed: is the Lua engine in Lightroom multithreaded? (Watching the deflickering script using just one core in my CPU gets kinda old...)

Tried the Plugin for Lightroom. LR CC 2015.5.1 running on Windows 10. Same problem here (Unsupported PPM format). The picture stored in the plugin diectory (temp.jpg) is also corrupted in some way. Can't be opened in PS, but Microsoft Pictures opens it, but there is a lot of horisontal lines:

sooo....
I have a particularly tricky sequence, I pulled aperture during a sunset and removed an nd filter at one point.  The exposures are all over the place but the sequence never clips.  I have 3 keyframes set (one at each end one in the middle).  Running the deflicker on the 0.5 percentile i end up with wildly more uneven exposure than in the original files., some frames are nearly black others really overexposed. The frames jump from light to dark with no reason that i can see - not corresponding to aperture or iso shifts.  I've also run it at .7 percentile and get a similar thing. What am I doing wrong?

I wanted to check back here and see if there's been any progress with the LR deflicker script. I just encountered a timelapse where ML's deflicker and LRTimelapse failed to do any meaningful deflickering on an ETTR sunset sequence and would love to see if this script does any better. I only have LR and not a modern copy of Bridge.

Happy to help test and troubleshoot if I can.

Forgive the multiple posts but today I tried to download a trial of Bridge CC to test out the script. Upon doing so I realized that Bridge CC is actually free, as in despite me not having a CC subscription I was allowed to download and use it without any apparent restrictions.  I do have an Adobe Account as I use Lightroom (non-subscription version).
Download it here: https://creative.adobe.com/products/download/bridge

Can someone tell me how/if I can run the LrRamp and LrDeflick scripts in Lightroom 5.6?  I downloaded the .lua files, but I can't run them as a plugin and I don't know how to just run them as a script.  Is there someway to convert the .lua files into a proper plugin?  I also don't know how to "compile" djpeg?  Anyone got some tips for a sad total newb?

Thanks

LR6 only. LR5 API does not have the requisite functions.

It actually doesn't work on LR 6 either.

Do what I did and download the latest version of Bridge CC. You actually don't need to be a paying Creative Cloud user (I'm not)- an Adobe account seems to be enough.

Hi David,

I'm having trouble with using your script in lightroom 6 (version - 2015.6.1).  I've used it before in Bridge but it takes forever and sometimes just doesn't work (too many images at once?).  My friend installed djpeg after compiling it with brew and we've put it in the plugins folder but I'm getting the same error message as a previous user when I try to run the script "Unsupported PPM format -> Expected a binary RGB (P6)".  Can you help? I'd love to use this plug in in Lightroom (mainly as I think it'd be quicker?)

Thanks in advance

James

Works fine here (2015.6.1). Try the download from the release page: https://github.com/davidmilligan/LrDeflick/releases/download/v0.1.0/deflick.lrplugin.zip

It already includes djpeg and should work as is.
