Has anyone found a DAM vendor that supports the affinity thumbnail previews?  I asked about this quite a while ago and was told the previewer code or codec ships with windows but so far in the last 6 months I've not found a vendor that can support the preview feature.  They've been willing to add it but say its not currently possible.

Any advise on where to look or what to actually have them look for?  I've checked with 7 willing vendors so far and come up empty each time for implementation. 


Thanks,
Ryan.

Appreciate that.. i am already running it so I'm all good in desktop views.  It has to do with web-based services where they don't have the previewer.  Most online tools have previews for the major file types (doc, pdf, ai, pdf, jpg, png, etc..) but nothing for affinity yet that i've found.

Well it’s obviously possible so I can’t see a reason why they can’t add the Affinity file format to their list of supported formats, unless the XnViewMP Dev team are a special breed of super Dev lol!

I’ve just posted on the XnViewMP forum because they don’t actually list Affinity files as a supported format and they clearly should: https://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.php?f=82&t=40193

I know, you'd think it wouldn't be that difficult with motivated vendors. Must be some magical formula that isn't published to make this work in the web.

Thanks for posting...

Ryan.

While you are at it, maybe ask why previews are not supported for .afpub files?
