Post subject:  PS - running multiple actions, or batching a batch?

Does anyone know of a way to run actions in PS one after another automatically - like creating a batch file containing a collection of batches?

What I want to do is create a number of actions for different sets of images, and then run those actions one after another while I'm away at work. At the moment I use Photoshop->Image Processor from within Bridge, but you can only run one action at a time.

I found Batch+ which sounds like it would work, but is an $80 add-on/plug in.

Anyone have any suggestions? Would save me sneaking my laptop into work and having it running next to me all day (and avoiding any non-work related questions).

I have the same problem. I have over 100 folders of images from different timelapses. I use Quicktime and go through each folder, individually exporting the videos, which takes many many hours.
There must be a better way. Have you had any good experience with Batch+?

Hi again.
I just spoke to the online help person at Batch+, who says that it can't be used for timelapse conversions. They didn't have any suggestions either, but didn't seem to know much about timelapse.

I haven't tried Batch+, but I also haven't found a solution to the problem. So at the moment I'm having to run one batch at a time.
