Thanks Chris for your prompt response.
I can certainly create the YUV color space first, basing myself on those
examples from the toolbox.
Once that it is done, we are ready to define the pixel formats afore
mentioned... at least for the IMC4.
If you want to take a look already,
here<http://www.fourcc.org/images/imc2.gif>you have an example of how
an image with a sub-sampled pixel format would
look like in memory. The core idea is that different channels have
different resolution! he idea is that the value of the channel 'U' is the
same for the pixels @(0, 0) , @(0, 1), @(1, 0), @(1, 1). Same applies to
the value of the channel 'V', but for the channel 'Y', they can hold
So iterating through pixels, we have to iterate through channels at
different 'speed' for they don't have the same resolution.
Thanks a lot Chris for your valuable help!
