Now how about copying EXIF/XMP/IPTC? You could integrate ExifTool from
Phil Harvey for this.
Or even better, how about a standard way to run a post-render script so I
can do it myself if needed? This way we could attach a script to each
render process that will get fired off at the end, ideally with the paths
to source and output images (or just the whole PTO script) passed to the
I do this with a hotfolder now, but it's a bit tricky to get timing right
in all cases. I'd rather do it explicitly this way than have a script have
