EXR [zips] compression

Convert EXR to zips compression.

Had this one sitting on my computer for a little while now. Just a little batch script to convert exr to zips compression instead of zip, it converts them from tiled to scanline which means nuke will read the sequence and preview changes faster.

To use simply right click on any file inside the folder of an image sequence you want converted. Choose SendTo > EXR / TGA It will convert your files into a subfolder labeled TGA/ZIP for you to copy over.

Paste the batch scripts into this directory.

You should with any luck (haven’t tested it in a while, so hopefully) you’ll have something like this:
