yuvsplittoppm - Man Page

convert separate Y, U, and V files into a PPM image

Examples (TL;DR)



basename  width  height [-ccir601]


This program is part of Netpbm(1).

yuvsplittoppm reads three files, containing the YUV components, as input.  These files are basename.Y, basename.U, and basename.V.  Produces a PPM image on Standard Output.

Since the YUV files are raw files, the dimensions width and height must be specified on the command line.


In addition to the options common to all programs based on libnetpbm (most notably -quiet, see Common Options ), yuvsplittoppm recognizes the following command line option:


Assumes that the YUV triplets are scaled into the smaller range of the CCIR 601 (MPEG) standard. Else, the JFIF (JPEG) standard is assumed.
