Bridge CC doesn't display dpx files

Sep 12, 2013 3:09 AM

We just upgraded from cs5 and there is a huge problem with bridge cc - it doesn't display previews for any dpx files.

I already exported 10bit, 12bit and 16bit dpx files and none of them display!!!

This pretty much makes Bridge useless for any postproduction facility.

We have it installed on 5 separate machines.

PS, AE and Premiere display the files without a problem.

    I see dpx is listed as Cineon.  What do you have for the default program to open?  Although I do not have any of those files is is listed for CS6.

    The generic icon means the program is lacking something, like a CODEC to read them, or it can't find the codec to read them.  Try trashing the thumbs with Tools/cache/purge cache for xxxx folder.

    Can you post a dpx file, or a link to a small one I can download?  Have never used one.

    Here are three different dpx fotmats exported form AE CC - 10bit, 12bit and 16bit - none of them displays in Bridge, all open fine in any of the Adobe applications.

     

     

    Using OSX 10.8.4 and Bridge CC 6.0.1.6 (latest update for CC just appeared last week) and can view the 10 and 16 bit versions without problems in Bridge CC as thumbs and as previews but the the 12 bit version is only a document icon. Select purge cache for selection has no effect

     

    I also can open and view the 12 bit version in AE so the file itself should be OK but here it ends I'm afraid due to next to none experience with AE. Tried to export again but got lost in the wood of options and a save as command saves as an AE project which also can't be viewed in Bridge…

    I am on a PC (Windows 7) and can NOT view .dpx thumbnails in Bridge ver 6.0.1.6. The files do open fine in PS and AE.

     

    The files are freeze frame exports created through Premiere.

    Just checked this out, 2March2014, and the situation is still the same. Bridge won't open .DPX, but Photoshop will. (Windows 7 machine, CS6.)

    I wouldn't have known to try Photoshop if not for y'all's postings, thank you.

     

    Not a big deal to me, I was just curious because when I make still frames in Premier on the Macs in my classroom the default that comes up is DPX.
