.mng support?

Recommended Posts

I am aware this is a very weird question, but does paint.net support .mng files?

The wiki says, that it does, but I couldn't manage to open it. I know that this format dates to like 2001 or something, but for some reason the creator of Launchy used it for the loading animation. And I am trying to make a skin for it.

The wiki is incorrect in this regard.


You could try editing the hex signature (see under Technical Details) to see if you could fool the Animated Image plugin into accepting it as an APNG.

Sorry for the late response. I didn't even got an email notification, that I got an answer! 


I installed the plugin and changed the hex signature of .mng (8a4d 4e47 0d0a 1a0a) to .apng(8950 4e47 0d0a 1a0a) and changed the extension to .apng but it didn't work :/

Any other ideas? In the attachment there is the .mng file if anyone can make sense of it.
