REQ: support for 2 Corel formats: CCX and WI

CCX is vector and WI is bitmap format. Archive with included conversions to WMF and PNG files is here:

for the the CCX i think its a form of png.. Xnview can preview the preview or the thumbnail stored inside the file..

for the WI .. there is no chance as it is like JPG but with wavelet transformation not DCT like JPG.. so in design it may look near JPEG2000

In 1996 Summus licensed its WI compression format to Corel when adopted it for all of its products.

there is only a viewer for the internet browsers..

here is the info
ftp://papa.indstate.edu/winsock-l/Windo ... npsi32.txt
and the file is here
ftp://papa.indstate.edu/winsock-l/Windo ... npsi32.exe

Hello Guest :)

CCX is a vector format, I haven't known PNG can contain vector data (?).
I can live without WI, but I'd like to see CCX implemented very much.

CCX is a vector with a PNG image preview like many vector formats in design.. so unless the CDR format is read (which i think CCX is rather a compressed form of it..) there will be no chance.. to support it

Yours
