creditsSome codecs use portions of code written by Hans Wessels. The code segments where taken from IrfanView, which Hans placed in the public domain. However, I cannot take credit for his work. ;o) His name appears as you see it here in the docs and inside the codes which are based on his work.
The DCTV codec is based on code by Cholok. Used with permission. I also should mention Toni Wilen (WinUAE maintainer) for helping as well.
H.-J. Berndt the author of Public Painter supplied his decompression code.

zViewThese are the codecs currently shipped with zView: Codec Extension(s) Encoder Animation Exif PureC Notes -------- ----------------------- ------- --------- ---- ----- ----------- BMP BMP - - - yes replaced DEGAS PI1 PI2 PI3 PC1 PC2 PC3 - - - yes replaced EUREKA RAW - - - yes replaced GIF GIF - yes yes yes fixed bugs GODPAINT GOD yes - - yes replaced IMG IMG - - - yes replaced JPG JPG JPE PEG yes - yes - can't build NEO NEO - - - yes replaced PNG PNG - - - yes replaced TGA TGA - - - yes replaced TIFF TIF IFF yes - yes - can't build Codec Option(s) List ----- --------- -------------------------------------------- GOD: 0 always uncompressed 16-bit HC (G4) JPG 3 image quality, color space, progressive flag TIFF 2 image quality, compression type The way zView matches file extensions to codecs is flawed. Zorro's scheme uses a rather sloppy method to avoid full long filename support, or better put, extensions that are over 3 characters. It only looks at the last 3 characters of any given file extension, thus .TIFF is seen as IFF and is wronly handed off to the TIFF codec. Then the loading order of the codecs becomes critical, as the first matching extension wins. The JPG codec sees .JPEG as PEG and so the same sort of sillyness goes on there as well. zView cannot handle file extenders with less than 3 characters. Jack-Paint files *.BD, must be renamed to *.DOO or they simply won't load. The original codecs from the zView archive, GIF and PNG do not seem to work correctly on magic-pc. Some combination of the m68000 cpu core, being linked against the MiNTLib, or magic, who knows. The JPG codec for whatever reason produces images that load ok in GemView and ImageCopy, but the palette is somehow not right. The 'RGB' color space seems to be the cause of it. If you use the 'Y/Cb/Cr' color space option, then they look correct in other applicaitons. Oddly, zView itself does not offer this color space option when saving. The original GIF codec does not handle transparent backgrounds correctly or animations with a frame delay of 0ms. Animations with mixed interlace and non-interlaced frames don't decode correctly. Animations where the first frame is transparent render garbage (dirty ram) as the background. The TGA codec has several problems. When loading 32-bit images it will state '0 colors' in window info line. Also, 32-bit images with alpha load as all black. Some images load garbled, this because the deocder assumes RLE pixels runs won't wrap to the next line, when in fact some images are save this way. zView also regects all files under 15-bit. The IMG codec does not support 4 color medium resolution images, they are rejected. Does not support 15-bit or 16-bit high-color images. IMG files with 2 or more planes that have no palette end up with random garbage for the colors. Hyper Paint variant not supported and STTT variant not supported. The NEO codec loads medium and high images which are technically impossible, since NEOchrome never supported those resolutions. The BMP codec won't load anything compressed. It alwo won't load 16-bit high color or 32-bit true color images. It also rejects OS/2 BMP files.
Installation InstructionsFirst time users of my codec pack: If zView is running, terminate it. The codecs are either installed at c:\gemsys\ldg\codes\ or inside the zView folder. If you have the original 11 codecs, rename all of them *.ldx except JPG and TIFF incase there is a problem. This will disble them, but you can easily go back to the older codec. My codec pack replaces all the codecs except JPG and TIFF, so this is why you should leave them installed. Now copy the new codecs into the directory. Restart zView. That's it. Updating my codec pack from an older install: If you have already installed my codecs and are updating them, once in awhile I rename a codec. For this reason you should delete all the codecs except JPG and TIFF and copy the new codecs into the folder. If you want to reduce the ram foot print of zView you can disable codecs you don't need. Note: zView processes files via file extenders, so if two codecs would happen to be installed at the same time, that handle the same file extender, the codec zView finds first will be used.

GEMGEM Metafile Planes Mode interpretation Notes ---------- -------------------------------- ---------------------------- 1 to 8-bit indexed color best results 15-bit XRRRRRGGGGGBBBBB 16-bit RRRRRGGGGGGBBBBB Falcon030 24-bit RRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGBBBBBBBB 32-bit AAAAAAAARRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGBBBBBBBB While in high-color or true-color modes, the conversion assumes the screen is laid out per Atari's specifications. 100% VDI calls are used to render the images, if the colors look totally wrong, blame the video card. If an image doesn't look correct in high-color or true-color, try 256 color mode. The current color palette is assumed and used since color information is not contained in GEM metafiles. Images will be scaled to the screen height and the width adjust such that the image remains perportional to it's original aspect ratio. Loading is somewhat slow since it relies entirely on VDI calls. Requires NVDI as it uses off-screen bitmaps. Metafiles from PC\GEM (GEM Draw for example) should load without problems.
COMPEYESComputerEyes (raw format) This format is not documented in the CE.PRG manual. You must hold down the Alternate key while clicking Load/Save in the drop-down menu. CE1 - 320x200 6-bits per RGB, thus 18-bit, 262144 colors CE2 - 640x200 5-bits per RGB, thus 15-bit, 32768 colors CE3 - 640x400 6-bit grayscale, thus 64 shades of gray Note: PicSwitch v1 also had an documented feature as it can load these files.
PCLPrinter Control Language This codec outputs PCL level 5 raw files. These can be sent directly to a PCL capable printer, or post processed into other formats like PDF. Quality is fixed at 300 dots per inch. Notes: Hold the ALternate key down while saving to output landscape orientation. This codec does not read PCL files. They will be ignored.
FLICAutodesk Animator (animations) Animation speed may incorrect. It may not play all FLIC files correctly. Tested mostly with files created by Apex Media. FLX, FLT probably won't work as they use more advanced compression which isn't supported.

ASCIIDefault color scheme is Black on White. Hold alternate down while loading to get White on Black instead.
COLRC.O.L.R. Object Editor If *.PAL is found in the same directory it's assumed to be the palette. If no palette file is found, grayscale is assumed.
IFFInterchange File Format (IFF) Installation, copy IFF.LDG and IFF.PRG to: c:\gemsys\ldg\codecs\ If used on MiNT u:\ram\ will be used to write a temporary file, otherwise folder c:\clipbrd\ needs to exist. Due to poor extension handling in zView, it will try to send *.IFF files to the TIFF.ldg codec. Either sort the directory so IFF.ldg is loaded before TIFF.ldg or disable the TIFF.ldg codec. Supported image types: ILBM - standard (1 to 8, 15, 16, 21, 24 planes) DILBM - dynamic ilbm (4 planes only) RILBM - raster ilbm (4 planes only, NEOchrome Master) EHC - extra-halfbrite (6 planes) HAM6 - hold-and-modify (6 planes) DHAM6 - dynamic hold-and-modify (6 planes) HAM8 - hold-and modify (8 planes) SHAM - sliced HAM (6 planes) CTBL - dynamic HAM (6 planes) ACBM - amiga continous bitmap (1 to 8 planes only) PBM - planar bitmap (8 planes only) DEEP - HC/TC variant (32 planes only) REG - Black Belt Systems HAM-E - Black Belt Systems Dynamic chunk support: BEAM CTBL DYCP PCHG Converts IFF 'ANNO' block into exif data. Uncompressed, RLE, and VDAT (Atari ST) Note: Degas block files are actually IFF files. The HAM-E and REG images will have blank scan lines at the top and this is normal. The HAM-E format stores special information in the first few scan line so they are blanked on purpse otherwise it looks like garbage.
IFF_DCTVAmiga DCTV images These are IFF files with the bitmap encoded a special way. They are so complicated it's a codec in itself. They should be renamed to *.dct before trying to load them. Supports 2-bit DCTV images (non-standard). Supports 3 or 4-bit DCTV images. Converts IFF 'ANNO' chunk into exif data.
IFF_RGBNAmiga Turbo Silver (Impulse) These need to be renamed *.TSI as the amiga has no consistant naming scheme. Supports: RGBN -> 12-bit RGB RGB8 -> 24-bit true-color Converts IFF 'ANNO' chunk into exif data. Note: Only compressed images are supported.
EZARTPROEZ-Art Professional EZA -> 320x200 - 16 color (st low, compressed) EZ4 -> ? (unsupported) EZ5 -> ? (unsupported)

DOODLEDr. Doodle images can be ST low, medium, or high. There's no resolution info in the file itself. The codec tries to auto detect the resolution. The resolution detection can be forced, hold down one of the following keys: Left-Shift -> High Control -> Medium Alternate -> Low Note: There is no color info in the file, so a default ST palette is used.
INSHAPEInShape Raytracing Software Supports: 1-bit mono 8-bit grayscale 24-bit true-color 32-bit true-color with alpha Not supported: 4-bit color 8-bit color
STADST Aided Design STAD images are always 640x400 monochrome.
SPEC512Spectrum 512 Loads: ST palette: standard, 3 bits STE palette: standard, 4 bits STE palette: enhanced, 5 bits (auto-detected) Holding the Alternate key down when loading forces an ST/STE standard palette, this way you can see the difference between standard and enhanced.
PCHROMEPhotoChrome images are awlays 320x200. Loads single image or dual image files.
SPECXSpectrum 512 Extended 320x??? These are Spectrum 512 images stacked on top of each other to produce a larger image. Loads compressed or uncompressed files. Note: Will not load files that are pre-packed as a whole.
ARTArt Director, Palette Master, GFA Artist, The ArtiST Art Director images are always 320x200 in 16 colors. Palette Master images are 320x200, with a 16 color palette for every 2 scan lines. GFA Artist images are always 320x200, they claim 1000 colors using 69 palettes, theres also a simple 16 color format The ArtiST images are always 640x400 monochrome.
GFTGFA Artist Font Only the first 160 characters are defined. Each character is 16x16 pixels.
MACPAINTMacPaint images are always 576x720 monochrome. Skips mac file header if detected.
POFO_IMGAtari Portfolio Graphics images are always 240x64 monochrome.
POFO_ANIAtari Portfolio Animations are always 240x64 monochrome. Maximum of 1024 frames. PGT frames are skipped. Wait for keypress option not supported by zView, simulated by 10 second delay. The overall timing might be slightly off.
GFARTIMGGFA Raytrace (Image files) Color images are always 320x200, 320x100, 320x50, or 320x25. Monochrome images are always, 640x400, 640x200, 640x100, or 640x50. Reads compressed or uncompressed files. STE palette supported.
GFARTANIGFA Raytrace (Animation files) SAL -> ST Low SAH -> ST High Animations ping-pong loop by default, hold down the Alternate key while loading for standard looping. Speed is estimated and may be incorrect.

SPOOKYSpooky Sprites Falcon high-color, compressed
INDYPNTIndyPaint Images are always Falcon030 16-bit high color.
NEOIMGNEOchrome images are usually 320x200 in 16 colors. NEOchrome v0.9h can create image files that are 640x400 in 16 colors. Part of the Atari 7800 developers kit. NEOchrome Master (Raster) images are 320x200, but each scan line has it's own palette. If file *.RST is found in the same directory, the raster image will be decoded in full color.
NEOANINEOchrome (Animation files) These's have no palette stored in the files, grayscale is used by default. If the codecs finds *.neo of the same name in the same path, it will load the palette from the image file. Speed is estimated and may be incorrect. Alternate key -> Hold when loading to reverse aniamtion direction Caps Lock key -> Force ping-pong looping NOTE: To get this feature on versions 0.9 and later select the Grabber icon and click both mouse buttons in the eye of the second R in the word GRABBER. Interestingly enough, some versions of NEO only require you to press the right button, not both.
IMGSCANIMG Scan (Seymor-Radix) Images are always 256 shades of gray. Image support: 320x200 -> *.RWL 640x400 -> *.RWH 640x200 -> *.RAW (IMG Scan v1.84)

CANVASCanvas images are standard ST low, medium, or high. There's also a special HBL mode with extra colors (Low and medium only). HBL supported: Canvas saves the extra colors in an HBL file. If an *.HBL file is found with the same base name, then it will be loaded in HBL format. Canvas can change the palette every 4 scan lines, thus 50 palettes can be displayed at once. Hold down the Alternate key to load the image without the HBL file. Will also load *.FUL files. These are CPT + HBL files all in one. RLE compressed or uncompressed. Note: CNV files have no palette. The resolution can be force, see DOODLE.

HRMHighResMode These images come from the demo: "HighResMode" by Paradox From the read me file: Each picture has a resolution of 640x400 and can contain up to 14,000 colors out of a palette from 29,791 colors. It is very hard to convert 24Bit pictures to this mode so you will still see some small color bugs in the pictures. Note: Won't load ICE packed files directly.
