[RFE] Enable hdri in ImageMagick
Last modified: 2015-12-04 15:48:24 EST
I'm interested in enabling hdri (high dynamic range imaging) in ImageMagick. Curiously, there is an entry in the changelog claiming that it's enabled
* Thu Nov 25 2010 Pavel Alexeev <Pahan@Hubbitus.info> - 18.104.22.168-17
- New version 6.6.5-10.
- Add --enable-hdri switch by request of Petr Vlašic.
But the switch is not added in the configure macro. Nor there is an entry in the changelog saying when it was removed.
Unfortunately enabling this mangle lib names like:
libMagickCore-6.Q16HDRI.so.1 instead of old libMagickCore-6.Q16.so.1
Could it have some side effects to others or I can just rename it to old names?
According to http://www.imagemagick.org/script/high-dynamic-range.php and http://www.imagemagick.org/discourse-server/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=21534&start=15 it is not backward capable and slowly. So, I can't enable it for all users by default.
And it will default in IM7.
So, if you are willing I can build it and package as set of subpackages like ImageMagick-hdri, ImageMagick-c++-hdri and so on.
Is it desired?
That would be great, thank you very much. And it hdri is going to be default in IM7, having hdri packages earlier will allow others to test it.
Ok, maybe we can then just wait 7 version and then update?
When is it planned to e released?
According to http://www.imagemagick.org/script/porting.php its available as Alpha. So, you can test it. I think it have no worth then start experiments with 6 branch.
