Batch convert PDF to DDS using Script-Fu - jimlumpkin - 08-16-2021

Brand new to Gimp and Script-Fu.  I have a need to batch convert PDF files to DDS with BC3/DXT5 compression and mipmaps option.  Would someone please provide a sample script?  

Currently have Gimp 2.8.22 installed and running on Centos 7 Linux laptop.

thanks!  Jim

AFAIK there is no DDS export plugin in 2.8?

There is a dds plugin that works with Gimp 2.8

Using the Gimp 'batch' facility has always defeated me, but it looks like it is not impossible.

There is an example script here: https://discuss.pixls.us/t/script-fu-example-batch-script-explained-for-beginners/7341

Usual advice is: Not Gimp, use ImageMagick.
