About

embARC

embARC is a free, open source application that enables users to audit and correct embedded metadata of both individual DPX files or an entire DPX sequence, while not impacting the image data. DPX, short for Digital Picture Exchange, is a pixel-based (raster) file format intended for very high quality moving image content with attributes defined in a binary file header.
