I was testing with CC 2017 and Image Processor Pro did not record in an action like a plug-in.  However old action I recorded Image Processor Pro in worked like a plugin. I still use CC 2014 so I tested the other creative cloud versions of Photoshop recording an Image Processor Pro  Plug-in step into an action.  CS6, CC and CC 2014 recorded the plugin step correctly,  CC 2015, CC 2015,5 and CC 2017 did not record the step correctly.  I do not know if its a bug in Photoshop on not.  For though CS6, CC and CC 2014. Record and play the step like a Photoshop Plug-in and use the recorded settings made recording the action step.  Though the recorded action steps work correctly in the action palette palette it looks like an empty step in the action.Capturejpg

Hi,

I just downloaded the most recent Image Processor Pro and ran on Windows 10 with CC 2017.0.1 and it recorded and played back with the parameters recorded (as you show outlined in red). Do you have the latest image processor pro version? I downloaded here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/ps-scripts/files/Image%20Processor%20Pro/v3_2%20betas/ImageProcessorPro-3_2b5.zxp/download

Thanks,
Eric

The Problem seems to be related to running action in in the image processor run. I recorded two Image processor steps in CC 2017 the first Image Processor Pro step recorded correctly the second Image Processor step did not record like a Plug-in the only differences in the steps recording is the first one did not include running actions in the Image Processor Pro the second one did.  CS6, CC and CC 2014 rerecord that step correctly and that step with the actions play correctly in CC 2-015, CC 2015.5 and CC 2017.

Hi,

I cannot reproduce this. I've tried recording an action with two steps, each running image processor pro and it is working as expected. I've tried various combinations of image processor where it runs an action or not and in each case the action records and plays back as expected. Perhaps you could share the image processor config for each of the steps in your action (load IPP and click the Save button).

Thanks,
Eric

Eric I will have no problem recording the action in CC 2017.  When recording  the IPP step if I set its dialog to use an action.  The step does not record correctly.  If I do not include an action the step records correctly.   Older version of Photoshop record both cases correctly.  In fact I can play the  the old action the current version of Photoshop and  it will work correctly.   I can send you the actions one recorded with CC 2014 and one recorded with CC 2017.  The CC 2014 recorded Action will work in CC 2017.  The action recorded in CC 2017 will not work in CC 2017.

Eric  How many output image sets did you try and how many action did you use.  I create 10 set of image and use 10 actions.  CC2014 Has no problem recording the plug-in doing that CC 2017 does not record the script step correctly it should look like an empty step an play without a dialog cc2017 record it as a interactive script it can not seem to handle that many sets and action???  It easy to see it is a screen capture og the actions recorded on in cc2014 which will work in cc2017 the recording is wrong I also captured the IPP Dialog setting I use in CC2014  and CC2017 you can see the setting I use are the same the CC2014 and CC2017  they just display the Dialog in a different format.

Also not the ten set is the limit CC 2017 can actually record that setup some time just I just did the same simple one to ten sets just used Adobe's Action set Frames Photo Corners .  CC 2017 could record those 10 action When I tries 11 IPP kicked in with No. So the problem is not ten sets. The problem is something else.  I also reported this to X  The problem could well be in IPP in its plug-in code. It is not a major problem.
