QPix – well & alive

QPix is a long time lasting 4D plugin from Escape Ltd. It’s unmatched picture processing capabilites needed a break after Apple got rid of QuickTime. Now QPix is back.

Q2Pix is the modern successor to QPix and the first member of a new generation of 4D add-ons which are more than just plug-ins. Rather, they are 4D extensions combining a plug-in and open-source 4D components that blend the plug-in with modern 4D features, such as subforms, objects and JSON.

Q2Pix handles raster as well as vector images, and offers comprehensive support for Adobe’s extensible metadata platform (XMP), the industry standard for metadata.

A rich image viewer widget implemented in a supplied open-source 4D component combines a Q2Pix plug-in area with common 4D form objects. The menubar and toolbar are written in 4D and are customizable. A sidebar, also written in 4D, can be shown when displaying multi-page images such as TIFF and PDF, and help with thumbnail-based navigation.
