@OperaNole  Here's what it looks like for me when I run your workflow, yours looks different?:

It runs great, but the images are low-res.    If I size them at all they look like **bleep**.

 

I was wondering if there was a way to set the resolution on the image output....

@OperaNole  Perhaps your resolution in the Render tool is misconfigured? Try changing to 1x...

My first attempt at making a Python tool:

 

Window Calculations!

 

It takes in 2 main inputs, Window Type (Rolling or Expanding) and Window Calculation (Min, Max, Sum, Avg, St. Dev). I had been creating macros for these tasks in the past, so I thought a nice flexible tool would speed things up a bit.

 

If anyone has any suggestions for different calculations or other window parameters, I would love to hear what you think.
