Discussions on GFL SDK, the graphic library for reading and writing graphic files
Directory Opus News (Universal Graphics Viewer Plugin) wrote:A new Directory Opus viewer and thumbnail plugin has been released by ZwickySoft, adding support for additional image formats.
The plugin is based on the GFL SDK, a component for decoding various images which was written by Pierre E. Gougelet, the creator of the XnView image-viewer.
The plugin adds support for the ‘HDR’ format, which I know a several people have requested over the years. For a list of the (many) other formats, and further discussion of the plugin, see this thread at the Opus forums:
ZwickySoft (Universal Graphics Viewer (UGV) plugin for Directory Opus) wrote:Directory Opus is a file manager for Windows. It includes thumbnail support and allows viewing various file formats within the program. The number of supported formats can be extended through a plugin system.
This plugin utilises the excellent GFL graphics library to provide support for 161 formats (including HDR. NOTE: some formats are already supported by Opus). It supports thumbnails, the Viewer/Viewer Pane, and conversion from any of the supported formats.
- Directory Opus Resource Centre: Universal Graphics Viewer Plugin - no updates anymore?
How does usage of GFL SDK by Directory Opus comply with restrictions mentioned in SDK's ReadMe.txt?
It's not for creation of viewers.Restrictions: You may not use the Software (GFL SDK or GflAx) to create components or controls to be used by other developers without written approval.
The product developed should not be similar to or should not compete with XnView/NConvert (should not be a graphic viewer or converter).
