plugins error: "format could not be determined"

Post by kaoru » Wed Jul 06, 2005 3:31 pm

I have downloaded and installed the latest version of xnview and the latest .eri plugin (in plugins folder, and it shows up in plugins info window), but the program still does not recognize the file type. Error message: "Format of the file <foobar.eri> could not be determined." I've checked a hex view of the file and see the words "Entis Rasterized Image" in the right-hand column.

I just tried the .swf plugin and had the same problem.

Thank you for any help you can give.

try to rename Xswf.dll in Xswf.usr, in the PlugIns folder...
For me, this plugin is working now with XnView 1.80.1

Merci de votre suggestion, terryo. Je l'ai essaye, mais ca ne marche pas: ou je vois un image immobile, ou je ne vois qu'un carre blanc.

renaming this plugin was proposed by Pierre
http://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.php?p=13030

On my computer, it's working but without animation (it's a limit of xswf plugin). For animated SWF file, only the first picture/frame is visible.

Can't view .SWF

Post by Warper » Mon Nov 21, 2005 4:49 pm

Hi to all,
I just downloaded XnView 1.80.3 and added the xswf.dll plug-in but nothing happens. :(
I already restarted XnView several times but still can't view this type of files.
When I try to open those file from within XV explorer window I receive a message telling me that the program does not know how to read these files.
Any idea?
TIA

I have been sent 2 files that I need to open urgently. The file extensions are *.cdr and the start of the file in hex is RIFF....CDRCvrsn...

I thought these were Coreldraw pictures.

However RIFF is Raster Image File Format.

Is there a plugin in XnView that would open AND convert these files to a useful format?

Please help

Thanks

Chris

The “CDRCvrsn” string indicates that these are actually CorelDRAW files.
corion.net ([url=http://www.corion.net/cgi-bin/wiki.cgi/display/Format:RIFF]Wiki | FileFormats | RIFF[/url]) wrote:The RIFF (Resource interchange file format) format was created by Microsoft and is used by many applications like Windows, Corel Draw etc.. It is block structured, each block has a header ID and a size, so that even a program that works with an old version of the file format can skip the unknown parts of the file and work on the known parts of the file. All RIFF blocks begin on a word boundary so it might be necessary to skip an additional byte. In the present specification, only one RIFF block per file is allowed, and only the RIFF and LIST blocks may contain subblocks.
You'll find a “RIFF” signature in the headers of .ANI (Animated Cursor), .AVI (Video for Windows), .PAL (Microsoft Palette), .WAV (Wave Form), but also .CDR (CorelDRAW), .CLK (Corel R.A.V.E.) and .CMX (Corel Presentation Exchange) files, if you view them in hex mode.

XnView supports plug-ins that means additional libraries which are used for reading or writing additional file formats or additional filtering effects. The plug-ins are available on the normal XnView Download page.
Hello,

I am sorry but... I can't found any plugins to download on this page. Only the main download of Xnview.

Where is the mistake I done? :|

The plug-ins have been moved to their own download page. Please follow the link "Format plugins" on the Windows download page. There are further links which point to Help files, additional language packs, and Addons.

Hello,
I working on a plugin for wnview for a home made image format. These are 16 bits image files. Variation of a pixel [0; 65535]. I use "PluginsSDK-win" but I've not found documentation about it. When displaying images, there are color, I want it do be grayscale [0; 65535]. How can i do that ?

Thanks,

Mikael.

You convert the 16pixels to 8bits?

No, in fact, the format of my pictures are 16 bits, one dimension. The file conains 3 "long" (datatype:16, Dx, dy) and the data buffer. It is 16 bits because it is the result of line scan with subpixel. So, the information in the 16 bit pixels is the height. I don't have color information.

I've found the SDK. It's almost working in XnView but there are colors in green and blue. I would like a grayscale in 16 bits. So i've done the following :

BOOL API gfpLoadPictureGetInfo( void * ptr, INT * pictype, INT * width, INT * height, INT * dpi, INT * bits_per_pixel, INT * bytes_per_line, BOOL * has_colormap, LPSTR label, INT label_max_size )
{
long lDataType=16;
long lDx=0;
long lDy=0;
MYDATA * data = (MYDATA *)ptr;
fread( &lDataType, sizeof(long), 1, data->fp );
fread( &lDx, sizeof(long), 1, data->fp );
fread( &lDy, sizeof(long), 1, data->fp );
*bits_per_pixel = lDataType;
*width = lDx;
*height = lDy;
data->width = *width;
data->component_per_pixel = *bits_per_pixel / 8;
*pictype = EDX_TYPE_PICTURE;
*dpi = 68;
*bytes_per_line = *bits_per_pixel/8 * *width;
*has_colormap = FALSE;
strncpy( label, "Edixia 3D image", label_max_size );
return TRUE;
}
BOOL API gfpLoadPictureGetColormap( void * ptr, GFP_COLORMAP * cmap )
{
return FALSE;
}

Is it correct ?

Thanks a million for your help.

Mikael.
