Bug#178317: ITP: openexr -- A high dynamic-range image file format by ILM

Package: wnpp
Version: unavailable; reported 2003-01-25
Severity: wishlist

  Description     : A high dynamic-range image file format by ILM

OpenEXR is a high dynamic-range (HDR) image file format developed by
Industrial Light & Magic for use in computer imaging applications.

OpenEXR's features include:
    * Higher dynamic range and color precision than existing 8- and
      10-bit image file formats.

    * Support for 16-bit floating-point pixels. The pixel format,
      called "half," is compatible with the half datatype in NVidia's
      Cg graphics language and is supported natively on their new
      GeForce FX and Quadro FX 3D graphics solutions.

    * Multiple lossless image compression algorithms. Some of the
      included codecs can achieve 2:1 lossless compression ratios on
      images with film grain.

    * Extensibility. New compression codecs and image types can easily
      be added by extending the C++ classes included in the OpenEXR
      software distribution. New image attributes (strings, vectors,
      integers, etc.) can be added to OpenEXR image headers without
      affecting backward compatibility with existing OpenEXR
