OpenGL extension SGIX.ycrcb
This module customises the behaviour of the OpenGL.raw.GL.SGIX.ycrcb to provide a more Python-friendly API
Overview (from the spec)
This extension provides a method for OpenGL to read and store images that are defined in standard YCRCB 422 and 444 video formats. As with the CYMK extension, conversion to RGBA takes place immediately following the unpack pixel store, and preceding the pack pixel store operations, and is only available on transfers to and from memory. The algorithms that convert between YCRCB and RGBA are "black-box" in nature, and left undefined by the extension.
Two new formats are added, YCRCB_422_SGIX and YCRCB_444_SGIX.
To handle the difference in sampling rate for 422 video, the pixel storage operations treat YCRCB_422_SGIX as a 2 component format, where the first component represents chroma, and the second luma. The chroma component alternates between Cb and Cr values on a per pixel basis. If the specified image <width> parameter is not a multiple of 2, then fragments or texels that result from processing the <width>th column of pixels will have undefined color value.
YCRCB_444_SGIX is defined as a 3 component format representing the Cb, Y, and Cr values per pixel.
As with the CMYK extension, this extension doesn't preclude the possiblity of other higher quality conversion methods.
