ppmtoyuvsplit — convert a PPM image to 3 subsampled raw YUV files

Synopsis

ppmtoyuvsplit basename [ppmfile]

Description

This program is part of Netpbm(1).

ppmtoyuvsplit reads a PPM image as input.  Produces 3 raw files basename.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 represents 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.
