[FFmpeg-devel] [PATCH] Fast half-float to float conversion
Tue Jun 30 07:33:43 CEST 2009
I'm almost done with my OpenEXR decoder, but since it can work in a
half-float format I wanted a fast half-float to float conversion. I
found one in the FOX toolkit which uses a table lookup. I didn't want
the table lookup in the OpenEXR decoder only, since a few other formats
can use half-floats aswell. So instead I submit the half-float to float
first as a libavutil header.
The code is derivative work from the FOX toolkit, but I have already
asked permission to include it in the ffmpeg project, granted that I
stated origin and a link to the paper describing the table lookup. The
paper can be seen here :
I have tested the code with the before mentioned OpenEXR decoder and it
works as expected with half floats.
