When you save an unstructured document to XML, FrameMaker uses the XML Mapping Table (part of the Reference Pages).
I'm trying to find documentation for this mapping table and its elements (in this case, the Image Format row and which values are possible besides the default 0001IMAGGIF GIF). The Help doesn't seem to contain any information on the Mapping Table. Is there a separate document that describes this?
You can experiment with these values:
0001FRAMAIF AIF 0001FRAMAIFC AIFC 0001FRAMAIFF AIFF 0001FRAMASF ASF 0001FRAMAU AU 0001FRAMAVI AVI 0001FRAMIVF IVF 0001FRAMKAR KAR 0001FRAMM1V M1V 0001FRAMM3U M3U 0001FRAMMID MID 0001FRAMMOV MOV 0001FRAMMP2 MP2 0001FRAMMP3 MP3 0001FRAMMPA MPA 0001FRAMMPE MPE 0001FRAMMPEG MPEG 0001FRAMMPG MPG 0001FRAMQT QT 0001FRAMSWF SWF 0001FRAMWAV WAV 0001FRAMWMV WMV 0001FRAMU3D U3D 0001FRAMFLV FLV 0001FRAMMP4 MP4 0001FRAMFRMV FrameVector 0001FRAMFRMI FrameImage 0001IMAGIGES IGES 0001IMAGPICT QuickDraw PICT 0001IMAGEPS EPS 0001IMAGTIFF TIFF 0001IMAGDIB DIB 0001IMAGGIF GIF 0001IMAGG4IM CCITTG4 0001IMAGJPEG JPEG 0001IMAGPNG Portable Network Graphics 0001IMAGWMF Windows Metafile 0001FRAMPDF PDF 0001FRAMSVG SVG 0001ADBEHTML HTML 0001ADBEXML XML 0001ADBIRTF Microsoft RTF1.9 IGES PICT EPS TIFF DIB GIF G4IM JPEG PNG WMF
Thanks, that provides one part of the answer. Where did you find this list?
I ran an old FrameScript script that I wrote years ago. I don't have an ExtendScript equivalent.
I did some tests with a file that contains 1 imported JPEG image, with a few FrameMaker drawing objects on top.
0001IMAGGIF GIF: standard value. Image is converted to GIF as expected.
0001FRAMSVG SVG: gives an error 'FV_FilterFailed' during export
0001FRAMPDF PDF: gives an error 'FV_FilterFailed' during export
0001IMAGEPS EPS: creates a 33 MB file with extension '.gif' that turns out to be an EPS file. Illustrator crashes when importing this, but Acrobat can open it.
Anyway, the above list works in principle. Thanks!
You will likely have better success with File > Publishing. I doubt that anything has been done with the Save As HTML functionality in quite awhile.
A quick look at the Publishing settings didn't turn up anything related to image format options. The Basic HTML output converts the images to JPEG.
I was looking at the XML export because I've got images that consist of an imported image with FrameMaker image objects on top. I want to convert these to EPS (or another vector format that preserves the FrameMaker image objects as editable objects). The XML export with '0001IMAGEPS EPS' gives me this.
Did you figure out how to get an .eps extension?
