With this script, you can automate auto-leveling in batches, enabling you to correct images in an entire folder
Problem it solves: The image appears tilted in third-party apps because the app can't read the horizon correction data from the THETA's file.

AutoIt 3.x script for batch processing using the Ricoh Theta for Windows GUI application. The app can auto-level the panoramic images and add the missing XMP metadata, but it only processes one image at a time by itself.

After downloading, change the path and the language strings in the script
copy it into the directory with your 360° panoramic images
copied from the Ricoh Theta camera. Launch it (usually by double clicking) and
it will scan the directory and - for every JPG image that does not yet have an
accompanying _xmp.jpg file - generate it using the Ricoh Theta for Windows
The generated files will be auto-levelled and contain the XMP metadata necessary to
turn the images into photospheres and/or use them with Mapillary.
