I want to start this topic-specific for debayering Point Grey/FLIR camera’s.
Exporting image file like BMP, TIFF,… doesn’t represent the truth bit depth of the image itself.
With this handy MB pixel calc: Megapixel Calculator can I calculate how much MB it will be when I want to export it on 16BIT.
In this example: Example: 4000x2750 I set the width on 4000 and length on 2750 pixels and together they are 11MP so the Calculate file size on “RAW/DNG 16 bits/pixel” reads 22MB.
So when I use FlyCapture2 set my setting on MODE 10 4000x2750, Pixel Format: YUV422 export under RAW the file size is 20,9 MB so this is almost spot on.
And when I export it under, let’s say BMP the file size is 31,4 MB and it doesn’t matter if I set the Pixel Format on RAW16, YUV422, YUV411 it’s always 31,4 MB and 8Bit.
So now I need to find a way to debayer the RAW files…
Camera I use: FL3-U3-88S2C-C
FLIR send me this .CPP file: RawToProcessed.cpp (6 KB)
