OpenEXR

OpenEXR

OpenEXR is a high dynamic-range (HDR) image file format developed by Industrial Light & Magic for use in computer imaging applications. The format has 16-bit floating-point color component values, supports 32-bit unsigned integer and 32-bit floating-point data types, and several lossless compression methods.

It provides the following tools:

  • exrheader, a utility for dumping header information
  • exrstdattr, a utility for modifying OpenEXR standard attributes
  • exrmaketiled, for generating tiled and rip/mipmapped images
  • exrenvmap, for creating OpenEXR environment maps
  • exrmakepreview, for creating preview images for OpenEXR files
  • exrdisplay, a sample application for viewing OpenEXR images on a display at various exposure settings
  • IlmImf, a library that reads and writes OpenEXR images
  • Half, a C++ class for manipulating half values as if they were a built-in C++ data type
  • Imath, a math library with support for matrices, 2d- and 3d-transformations, solvers for linear/quadratic/cubic equations, and more

Selected Reviews:

Features include:

  • Higher dynamic range and colour precision than existing 8- and 10-bit image file formats
  • Support for the "half" 16-bit floating-point pixel format
  • 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 applications
