Please support the thumbnails for ArtCam files.
Now ArtCam is part of Autodesk.
Extensions are .art and .rlf
Samples here:

Hmmm... from the Autodesk site:


ArtCAM is no longer available

On February 7, 2018, Autodesk discontinued the sale of new subscriptions of Autodesk ArtCAM® software.

As of February 7, 2018, Autodesk will officially discontinue ArtCAM as an individual product. As of that date, there will not be any further releases or development for ArtCAM and product updates will no longer be delivered.

Customers who have an active ArtCAM subscription can continue to renew until July 7, 2018.

He, he,
Buy a working software to discontinue it !?
Autodesk's way to fight competition.

Still good to have thumbnails for files, there is a conflict with another kind of .art files making xnView to freeze.
A lot of people use old versions of ArtCam (not Autodesk's).
Alternative is Vectric, I'll post request for Vectric Aspire files too.

XnView software does support many discontinued file formats, so really just a question of the resources needed to add support?
