Batch DDP / Stretch and Save as JPEG

I'm trying to emulate 'blink' functionality using APP. I've got a batch of subs, and have done the "save registered frames" operation that has produced a FITS file for each. But I don't have a good way of rapidly viewing a stretched version of each.

What I'd like now is to apply DDP / auto-stretching in APP for each file (default setting are fine), and save as a JPEG, to allow me to quickly flip through them in another application. It's easy enough to save stretched fames individually, but it gets tedious quickly.

I checked the batch modify tool, and that doesn't seem to provide what I want. Is there a way to do a batch stretch in APP currently? Anything faster/easier than manually opening and saving a stretched version of each sub?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

+1 for me!

My use case is that I want to correct/stretch each frame of comet C/2020 F3 and assemble them into a video to see comet motion against the stars. Comet stacking in the beta version has been absolutely wonderful so far, and batching (or allowing export to video) would be a great addition to this.

There is no batch stretch, but a way to flip through the data is something that is on Mabula's to-do list. When that'll arrive I have no insight in though.
