Can 2-part filters be done in batch processing in Virtualdub?

    Is it supposed to be possible apply a filter that requires 2 operations in
    batch processing in Virtualdub? I'm thinking specifically a deflicker
    filter. I tried doing 3 different captures by getting to the point where you
    save the file and selecting "hold for batch processing". It apparently
    didn't "take" when I ran the batch processing. The flicker wasn't removed.

    Thanks for all input.

    Whatever the settings, simple or complex, you establish at the time of
    adding a clip (or a directory of clips) to the Job list, shall be used
    for the batch processing.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "requires 2 operations". You can add a
    filter as many times as you like to the list of filters.

    Perhaps you should try with a small part of a clip, and see if you get
    the desired deflickering by saving directly, before attempting any
    batch processing of all the clips.

    When using the deflicker filter, first you run it through once in
    "preparation" mode, play it in output to the end of the file and then switch
    to process and save the file. The way I tried it, I got up to the point of
    saving it in process mode but checked save for batch processing, on 3
    different files. Then ran the batch but the deflickering didn't take place.

    It worked fine when I trimmed the files and used the resize filter on all 3
