I got the same problem with other conversions... I think comiclrf can't figure out the right width for the document. I works for landscape in the same way that works for regular conversions, so it uses a fixed height for the document instead of a fixed width when working landscape.

Maybe Mr.FangornUK should have a look at it. I think this should work like that:

Regular document:
- With "keep aspect" option it adds left and right borders to the document.
- Without "keep aspect" option the page resizes to 600x800

Wide document:
- Allways mantains the aspect, and no matter how high the page is, the width is allways 800.

Hi FangornUK,

Is it possible to add "--right to left" parameter to your ComicLrf ?
I know the latest version is Comic2Lrf, but the speed of ComicLrf is faster than Comic2Lrf on my P4 PC...

lineager, really? by how much? Performance should be about the same as the hefty conversion code is pretty much the same.
I wasn't going to do anymore development on it.

Comic2lrf.exe now lets you zoom in on comics, but it seems like it is still converting them to the same resolution as before. Whenever I zoom, the zooms are pixelated and fuzzy. I know the resolution is there in the original cbz file, but the conversion seems to keep the resolution at the portrait mode setting even though it now lets you zoom. Here is the command I am using in XP:

"C:\Program Files\calibre\comic2lrf.exe" "Comic_about_an_aardvark.cbz" -r -w -d -l -a "Comic"

i know the name is comiclrf, but...

i know comiclrf means making .lrf files but i switched 2 weeks ago to ILIAD from my sony prs505 and now i cannot read lrf there.
Could you do put an option to make pdf instead of lrf? (i dont know how to send lrf to pdf printer with mac os x)

cheers

I really enjoy using comiclrf.
To make it better, is it possible to add a parameter to turn off "white edge cutting"? That is, simply treating the width of white edge as zero? When I was using comiclrf, sometimes it is intended to leave white space to express original feelings...
Thank you!

I had that when converting some manga, where a white page with a single object would appear once in a while. Putting a border around those specific pages with imagemagick before converting to lrf solved the issue:
Code:
convert -border 2x2 -bordercolor "#000000" old.jpg new.jpg
This is easy to run as part of a batch job, too.

Now if only I could find a convenient way of cropping scanned-in page numbers automatically...

That, my new friend, is one awesome tool. It is a shame that is seems to be windows-only, I can't read the language that it is published in, the zip functionality seems to be broken on my system (I copied unzip32.dll to my system folder but that didn't seem to help), the LRF output seems to get me a non-working LRF but the sequential image output function works great and it seems to detect and remove those pesky page numbers without fail using the option "page revision - novel only".

Definitely a tool to watch. Cheers.

Hi,

Been trying this out.. very impressed

I cannot get wildcards to work at all with comic2lrf (the one with calibre)

comic2lrf testcomic*.cbr

Is there anything wrong with the above command line ? I just get a error when it says it cannot find testcomic*.cbr

Cheers

Matt

comiclrf doesn't support batch conversion. Use the GUI for that

For batch conversion of all cbz/cbr files in a directory you can make the following .bat file and run it in the directory of files that you want to convert. The reason it creates a temporary file is because using wildcards alone in the command line didn't handle paths with spaces in them very well. Hope this helps:

Code:
cls
dir /b *.cb* > dir.txt
For /F "tokens=* delims=" %%A in (dir.txt) Do call "C:\Program Files\calibre\comic2lrf.exe" "%%A" -w -l -a "Comic"
del dir.txt /F
