I have a folder full of photos, raw dng files (actually it's a raw dng movie sequence).
The files are numbered, the files have the same prefix followed by "_frame_000000.dng" and the six digit number counts up every file.

Now I want automator to select the first 16 dng files in this directory (so file *_frame_000000.dng to *_frame_000015.dng) and drag it to the app Kandao raw+
Kandao raw+ is an app that aligns and averages multiple raw files in order to reduce noise ( https://www.kandaovr.com/download/ )

Ideally the app is already open at the beginning screen and the automator drags the first 16 files from the folder to the app.
After that I want automator select another 16 dng files from this folder, now 1 count up, so file *_frame_000001.dng to *_frame_000016.dng and drag these on the Kandao raw+ app.

and so on and on, until it reaches the last file group of 16 images in the folder.

Is this possible in automator and if so, how could I accomplish that ?

To give a better impression what I want to automate, here's an example screen recording, doing it manually.

Hello and welcome.

That is well beyond my experience with Automator/AppleScript. Maybe another member here will chime in, or you could contact the folks over at MacScripter, as they may be able to point you in the right direction.

Thanks for the reply.
Already was a bit afraid that it was too complicated to be done by automator.
