Supported media and metadata formats

by Murat on June 18th, 2010

Daminion supports a huge number of media formats including raster, vector and camera raw images, video, music and PDF format. Later we’ll add support for Microsoft Office, Adobe InDesign, Autodesk AutoCAD formats…

Additional media formats and metadata can be added by third-party developers as new MediaProcessors (MediaProcessor API will be available soon).

Below is the table of media formats and the corresponding metadata supported by the current Daminion version

    What about packed files? (zip, rar etc)
    I think, information can be writed in small file, wich will be added to archive.
    Example: I have html file with pictures and movies. All this files are packed in one arhiv, i put this file with tags and categories (or programms put) to arhiv, and use program for catalog and story.

    P.S. Excuse for my English.
    P.P.S Can I test your future programm?

    Alex, thanks for your comment. The first Daminion alpha version will not supports rar, zip files…

    But it’s not difficult to add zip or rar format support later. We’ll consider it. The only difference here is lack of the metadata support and the files will be displayed with a default thumbnail instead of the content based preview thumbnail. All other features like cataloguing, file management, check-in, check-out will works.

    Any requests about new file formats support can be sent to support at daminion dot com.

    Thanks!

    In reference to thumbnail for zip or rar files, i think description file may be jpg (or other) picture, with all necessary information inside.

    Example: in all arhives add file description.jpg, from which take thumbnail, and all tags, categoryes… If this file not found, program add predefined file.

    Hi Alex,

    Yes, I guess the thumbnail resolving process can be similar to your suggestion.
    In the samer manner we extract thumbnails for MP3 files:
    – Daminion will check the thumbnail inside the MP3
    – Then the program check for the JPEG files inside the MP3 Folder
