yuvtoppm - Man Page

convert Abekas YUV bytes to PPM

Examples (TL;DR)



width  height [imagedata]


This program is part of Netpbm(1).

yuvtoppm reads raw Abekas YUV bytes as input and produces a PPM image as output.  The input file is just YUV bytes.  You have to specify the width and height on the command line, since the program obviously can't get them from the file.  yuvotppm assumes the maxval of the input is 255.

The ppmtoyuv manual(1) tells a little about the Abekas YUV format.


There are no command line options defined specifically for yuvtoppm, but it recognizes the options common to all programs based on libnetpbm (See Common Options .)
