This thread for for the KFX Input plugin that converts from KFX to other formats. Did you mean to post your question in the KFX Output thread?

If so then you will need to edit the book to remove or replace the images that are causing conversion to fail.

Version 1.1.0 - 31 Jan 2018

Added a built-in File Type Plugin to automatically gather the component files of a book and produce KFX-ZIP format during book import. This eliminates the need for the user to produce KFX-ZIP files manually, simplifying the process of importing KFX books into calibre. (DRM removal must still be accomplished by other means, prior to import.)

Added another built-in File Type Plugin to combine the components of a KFX-ZIP into monolithic KFX format. This process will only succeed if all of the components of the book are present in the KFX-ZIP and do not contain DRM. This makes it easier to determine whether on not the import was successful since a successful import will result in KFX format and an unsuccessful one will result in KFX-ZIP format.

Added a Metadata Reader Plugin to extract KFX book metadata. This allows the title, author, and other metadata to appear in the calibre book entry when importing a KFX book.

Ignore approximate page numbers created by the KFX Output plugin.

Handle changes to KPF format produced by Kindle Create 1.3.30.0 and Kindle Previewer 3.17.1.

Fix KPF format not being accepted for conversion using the GUI interface.

Allow conversion of additional KFX features.

Improve detection of unsupported KFX features.

Thanks for the plugin

this plugin accepts a ZIP archive with the extension ".kfx-zip" containing multiple KFX files.
this quote in the original post is no longer true, right?

Why would you think the info in the first post wasn't accurate? It was last updated only a week ago. Did you try using this format and have it fail? My guess is the info in the 1st post is accurate, but I don't have first hand experience to back up that thought.

This is a quote from the first post from the recent update.

It is still true. The latest version of the plugin continues to accept KFX-ZIP as an input format for conversion. In addition it can accept either monolithic KFX format or KPF format (generated by Kindle Create) for conversion.

As with the previous version of the plugin, users have the option of creating a ZIP file of the book components (with a .kfx-zip extension) and then importing that. The latest plugin version also allows the user to just import the main KFX file of the book without the need to create a ZIP file first. The plugin will gather the other files that make up the book and produce a KFX-ZIP automatically during import.

As a separate step it will then take the KFX-ZIP and combine it into a monolithic KFX file. This step was added so that import results in a format that is suitable for purposes other than just conversion. A monolithic KFX file can be sideloaded to a Kindle device or viewed using the Kindle Previewer.

In any case it is up to the user to remove DRM before importing. I am still hopeful that the DeDRM software will someday be updated to automatically remove DRM from KFX-ZIP format during the import process, but there is no sign that anyone is working on that.
