Optimize Raster: Creating raster proxies causing cell size error

We are attempting to use Optimize Rasters for creating raster proxy files of airbus imagery (Pleiades, SPOT 6 and SPOT 7) that has been stored in JP2 format. The result of our attempts are three files: the DIM.xml, 2 kb JP2 files and JP2.aux.xml. The JP2 files can be added directly to ArcGIS Pro, but do not display. The DIM.xml cannot be added to ArcGIS Pro as it is not recognised. The DIM.xml cannot be added to a mosaic dataset as it raises a cell size error. The parameters of the gp tool have been kept relatively default, other than adding additional exclusion filters. Any thoughts?


Our end goal is to have the dim.xml added to a mosaic dataset, which references local storage of the JP2 files (now 2 kb, rather than multiple gigabytes). The source location (UNC) of the original JP2 files persists and is readable by the client machine (arcgis pro).
