SageThumbs & EXR

Post by Shah »

Hi
I use XnView and installed the OpenEXR plugin
Also I use a SageThumbs by Nikolay Raspopov
SageThumbs is a powerful shell extension allowing to preview enormous amount of image formats directly in Windows Explorer by using Pierre-e Gougelet's GFL library (XnView's author).

I want to see in Windows Explorer thumbnails of EXR files
But EXR is not included in the GFL library 3.40 which uses SageThumbs

How can I add EXR to the GFL library?

You need to copy openEXR.dll in plugins folder of XnViewShellEx

if on a hurry, you may want to give Mysticthumbs a try.
(from my experience: awesome utility with extensive file type compatibility & top notch support)

I have downloaded exr.zip from http://www.xnview.com/en/plugins.html
within the archive IlmImf.dll
I copied it to C:\Program Files(x86) \ XnView \ PlugIns

The program XnView displays thumbnails of EXR, but SageThumb does not see them.

openEXR.dll I could not find


Where is my mistake?

Sorry it's IlmImf.dll
And XnViewShellEx.dll is in "C:\Program Files(x86) \ XnView"??

Hello Pierre!
I spoke with Nikolay Raspopov.
EXR should be added to your GFL library.

Add it please !!!!!!!!!!

Hi There!

thank you Pierre!

we still wat very much for adding open EXR to your library. Because we really need to see EXR thums in xplorer. and we still cant...

Or maybe there is a new method already, that i dont know??
