Disable file extension check

I’m using OTB in QGIS via a processing model, and it doesn’t like the temporary outputs because they’re given a ‘.file’ extension. Is it possible to disable file extension checking in OTB and have it try to parse them anyway?


OTB is using GDAL to open image files. By default there is very few extension checking in OTB. Could you give some details on your test case?

What would be the underlying format of these temporary .file ?


This has to deal with fact that otb parameter file classes does not have a list of valid file extensions

Here is the old issue (1 year old) on this exact topic…
