thanks, that explains the unexpected result. It would be helpful to add 
a note to the documentation:
"The input pixel format must be planar, for example gbrp. If a 
non-planar pixel format is used (for example rgb24), a format conversion 
is inserted automatically and you might get unexpected results."
