A better alternative would be to work with JasPer and OpenJPEG upstreams to implement the features you require under a free license.+1 Paul, I would very much like to see extra work sent upstream for openjpeg to improve it. I helped package openjpeg for debian and I am still a heavy user of it so have a vested interest in its improvment.
Obviously I would prefer that too. I have been following the devpt from almost the begining when I discover that Jasper would produce garbage in 16bits+lossless, I switch over to OpenJPEG.
Specificly what functionality are you requiring that is currently not supported in openjpeg?
The thing I somewhat miss (reported by me): http://code.google.com/p/openjpeg/issues/detail?id=2 But what I would really like to see is multi component+temporal redundancies. Which is currently supported by kakadu. Using kakadu I can at least produce test file, and check my software handle the DICOM encapsulation of those... ref: http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/kakadu_jpeg2000/message/4169
BTW Openjpeg is under the pkg-phototools group (http://pkg-phototools.alioth.debian.org/), so you may wish to join us there on the mailing list for further discussion on what we can do to improve the library.
Sure. Thanks, -- Mathieu http://mathieumalaterre.com
