Post-processing scripts

Please note that post-processing on Android devices is a work in progress. As most scripts are written in Python, and unfortunately as there is no Python for Android, most scripts will not work. Some users have found success with bash scripts. To use bash scripts, you may need to install BusyBox from Play store for them to work, and you must configure option ScriptDir to the system partition.
