JPEG 2000 not working

Post by Hanysix » Wed Apr 08, 2020 6:48 am

I want to compres around 30 images to JPEG 2000 using a command line script, because I want to change several things in a loop.

I've downloaded NConvert from the website https://www.xnview.com/en/nconvert/.

First thing according to Formats.txt file, it is possible to compress JPEG 2000 files with a plugin, but according to -help jpeg 2000 is not supported.

I've followed the instructions in Plugins.txt file, downloaded JP2 plugin, created a folder "Plugins" in the same folder as Nconvert is, the path looks like this:
.\XnView <- Extracting the downloaded .zip file created this folder
.\XnView\Plugins <- I made this folder where I put JPEG 2000 plugins

I tried a simple command to compress jpeg file into jp2:
.\nconvert.exe -out jp2 -o cmp.jp2 cmp.jpg

This resulted in an error: Bad output format: jp2.

I also tried placing the plugins directly in Nconvert folder with the same result as above.
Please note that I have not found any information about requiring XnView to use Nconvert for JPEG 2000 compression.

Is it the x64bits version of NConvert?

Thank you for your help, it works now.

I've installed 64bit XnView MP and copy-pasted the openjp2.dll from XnView MP Plugins folder to Nconvert Plugins folder.
