DxO Optics sidecar as companion file

Post by marco-pano » Fri Mar 12, 2010 11:38 am

Using DxO Optics Pro to developp my Canon raw files, I'd like that DxO sidecar file with extension .dxo be added as companion to 'xmp, thm...' list.

Hello marco-pano,

you can achieve this by adding two extra lines to the [File] section of xnview.ini:

Code: Select all

Companion_00=cr2:dxo
Companion_01=crw:dxo

Thanks so much, XnTriq.
I missed this explanation in the post you mentionned.
My Canon only create .CR2 files, to be compatible with DxO OpticsPro v5 and v6, I added this to xnview.ini

Code: Select all

Companion_00=cr2:cr2.dxo
Companion_01=cr2:cr2.v6.dxo
