.dpx File Extension

Developer: SMPTE
File type: Digital Picture Exchange File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .dpx. Files with the file extension .dpx can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .dpx files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .dpx file?

Digital picture exchange files are also called Kodak raster image files, and these files are saved in the DPX format. Kodak developed the DPX format and the .dpx extension so users can transfer film images into digital image formats with lossless compression and encoding. These DPX files are also called digital moving picture exchange bitmaps. The content of these DPX files usually include a collection of still images. The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) later improved and, as of this writing, continues the development of the DPX format. Raster image files appended with the .cin extension are implemented with functionalities similar to the features integrated into these DPX files, with the exception of additional details included in the file headers of these DPX files. There are versions for Mac and Microsoft Windows platforms of the Adobe Photoshop CS6 software, which can be used to create, open and edit these DPX files. The XnView software can also be used by Linux users to open these DPX files.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .dpx files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .dpx. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
