create AOI equivalent to footprint in ERDAS IMAGINE (v16.1)

[ Edited ]

Is there a quick way to create an AOI layer that surrounds the entire raster perimeter similar to the Footprint layer command?

 

I want an AOI layer that is exactly equivalent to what would be created by the "Create new Footprint Layer" command.

 

I can do this via many intermediate steps involving saving to shapefile etc., but the goal is to be able to do this in quick and easily repeated manner from one raster to another.

Does it have to be an AOI? If a shapefile is acceptable, then this type of approach should give you an easily repeatable (and batchable) capability:

Looks like you edited your orignal post while I was typing and specified no shapfiles, so that's not the right approach.
