How-to: Import Unsupported Image Formats

HOOPS Visualize HPS supports many Image Formats (3DF Image Formats). However, HOOPS does not support every possible image format (e.g. gif, TIFF, ico, etc.).

If your application needs to import a format which is not directly supported by HOOPS, you have a few options.

  1. Convert the file to a format supported by HOOPS and read the converted file
  2. Enhance your application to read the unsupported format directly and pass the information to HOOPS
  3. For HPS, use an ImageKit (cf. SetData) when you obtain image data without using Image::File::Import
  4. For 3DF, transfer the image data to an array of image pixel to insert an image.
