I'm very new to creating actions and I'm looking to do something I think is simple, but my internet searches have turned up nothing.
I want an action that does a few things and then opens a filter (in this case On1 Effects). So far so good, but I want it to end there - just open the filter and not apply anything or close it. I can't figure out how to do this, because to stop the recording I have to close Effects, and that gets recorded as a step.
I'm planning on going back to Photoshop, I just don't want the Action to apply any On1 settings. Just trying to save me a few clicks The action I want is: - duplicate background layer - convert to Smart Object - Open on1 Effects [End of action] I make edits in On1 and save back to Photoshop. What happens now is that it will apply settings within On1 automatically and save those back to Photoshop.
Interestingly, I'm noticing On1 NoNoise doesn't behave this way, and actually does what I want it to do (stay open to let me apply settings)
