ppmtoyuvsplit - convert a PPM image to 3 subsampled raw YUV files
ppmtoyuvsplit basename [ppmfile]
This program is part of Netpbm(1).
ppmtoyuvsplit reads a PPM image as input. Produces 3 raw files base-
name.Y, basename.U and basename.V as output.
The output files are the subsampled raw YUV representation of the input
PPM image, as required by the Stanford MPEG codec. The Y output file
contains a byte for each pixel in the image, with the rows going from
top to bottom and the columns within each row going left to right. The
U and V output files are arranged similarly, except that each byte rep-
resents a square of 4 pixels of the image. The value is the arithmetic
mean of the value for each of those 4 pixels. Hence, the Y file is 4
times the size of the U file or V file.
The YUV values are scaled according to CCIR.601, as assumed by MPEG.
