Here's a list of PIX_FMTs which have *NOT* been tested by me so far:





I'd generate these source PIX_FMTs from the SVT SGI (=RGB48) material,  
using ffmpeg as converter.

My testscript already produces output useful for this, but needs some  
slight modifications to make things easier and complete.
I'll make these modifications and report here ASAP.
