OpenAsset On-Premise Supported File Formats



Outlined below is a comprehensive list of the image and video file formats supported by OpenAsset. If a particular file format is not listed, please contact your Customer Success Manager to discuss whether we can offer support.

Image File Support

The formats that OpenAsset has been very extensively tested with are listed below, these cover virtually 100% of the images we find at our clients. If you use image formats not included below please let us know, our software libraries support about another 80 but most of them are very highly specialised:

  • TIFF / TIF
  • JPEG / JPG
  • PDF
  • EPS / EPT
  • BMP
  • PCT
  • PSD
  • TGA
  • PNG
  • AI
  • GIF
  • HPGL / PLT
  • WMF

DWG File Support

At the moment OpenAsset does not support "DWG"files. We encourage you to save your final version of your "DWG" drawing as an "EPS" or "PDF" file and upload this into OpenAsset for processing.


Video File Support

Unlike 2D images there is much more to supporting video files than just looking at the file extensions (also known as "containers"). Even if the file extensions ("containers") are the same for multiple video files, the way in which the audio and video information is stored and played back may vary greatly.


This variation is due to the underlying mathematical formulas used to encode the audio and video information in the file. These mathematical formulas are more commonly known as "codecs".  OpenAsset can support a great many codecs out of the box, but if you're having a problem with a particular file please contact support and they will make their best effort to get things working as expected.


Here is a list of common file extensions ("containers") and mathematical formulas ("codecs") that OpenAsset can support, for a complete list please download the Supported Video Codecs PDF.
