TIFF/TGA encoder?

Why? It seems too small a task to be done in the course of SoC. --Kostya 09:20, 7 March 2007 (EST)

True, I'll rework it. --Merbanan 11:44, 7 March 2007 (EST)

DPX Encoder/Decoder

From what I understand this is the output of most film scanners. Having not used one I'm not 100% sure of this, and maybe someone could clarify, but my understanding is that film scanners output a collection of these files (I'm unsure if they're put in a container or not). There are already open source implementations in imagemagick and graphics magick.

Should be added to small tasks? Ce 04:41, 8 March 2007 (EST)

No, I'll fix it eventually, it's not that simple.--Merbanan 06:46, 8 March 2007 (EST)

Qualification Tasks

is reviewing and fixing up old unapplied ffmpeg patches not a good small task? Compn 20:25, 8 March 2007 (EST)

I wanted to ask the same question a minute ago;-) The QTRLE patch is not ready yet, and there is no patch for an DNxHD ENcoder in the mailing list. I originally wrote that someone with better knowledge should of course remove those proposals if he thinks they are bad, but I still think they probably tell something about applicants (and that Baptiste possibly didn't read Merbanans "rules"). --Ce 20:31, 8 March 2007 (EST)

Photo Codecs

I see several GSoC project proposals for encoding and decoding a variety of images. Is this truly appropriate for the FFmpeg project, which traditionally focuses on sequences of moving pictures vs. single images? I know that FFmpeg can put a movie together from a sequence of still pictures, or dump a movie into a series of still pictures. Are we hoping to do the same with HDR images? Otherwise, this type of work seems best left to dedicated photo processing projects. --Multimedia Mike 13:36, 9 March 2007 (EST)

And they are designed to operate with colour formats not currently supported by FFmpeg (like 16 bit per component). But JPEG-2000 and HD-Photo are likely to be used in movies so their support is undoubtedly useful. BTW, how do you plan to use qualification projects? --Kostya 14:09, 9 March 2007 (EST)
