Avid released a specification for a Open Media Framework Interchange file format, capable of containing audio, video, graphics, still images, etc. The format was replaced with the Advanced Authoring Format. Appears to be based on the Bento compound object format.
Later OMF files can contain the hex values
6F6D66693A64617461 starting at byte 5, which is
omfi:data in ASCII
Identification can also be made from 24 bytes from EOF.
OMFI 1 and 2 are different and some later software may not be compatible with the earlier version.
