YUV 4:2:2 single-channel to multi-channel

YUV 4:2:2 single-channel to multi-channel

I have a 4:2:2 YUV single plane image (YUYV....) and I want to convert itinto a 4:2:2 YUV separated planes(Y,U,V) image.
How to do so? Using a masked copy?
Thanks for your help,

take a look on these functions:

/* ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
// Name: ippiJoin422_8u_P3C2R, ippiSplit422_8u_C2P3R
// Purpose: Convert form 422 plane image format to 2-channal pixel
// image format and vice versa.
// Return:
// ippStsNoErr Ok
// ippStsNullPtrErr One or more pointers are NULL
// ippStsStepErr One or more steps is less or equal zero
// ippStsSizeErr Width of first plain 422-image less then 2(4)
// or height equal zero
// ippStsStrideErr Step is less then width of image
// Arguments:
// pSrc[3] It is three pointers to source images
// srcStep[3] It is three steps for previous three images
// pDst[3] It is three pointers to destination images
// dstStep[3] It is three steps for previous three images
// pSrc The pointer to source image
// srcStep The step for source image
// pDst The pointer to destination image
// dstStep The step for destination image
// roiSize Size of ROI
IPPAPI (IppStatus, ippiJoin422_8u_P3C2R, ( const Ipp8u* pSrc[3], int srcStep[3], Ipp8u* pDst, int dstStep, IppiSize roiSize))
IPPAPI (IppStatus, ippiSplit422_8u_C2P3R, ( const Ipp8u* pSrc, int srcStep, Ipp8u* pDst[3], int dstStep[3], IppiSize roiSize))

I think, it is what you are looking for


Hi Vladimir, I saw them: I'm using Split() but I getaippStsStrideErr error.

Ithink the reasonis thatmy U and V buffers have dimension of W/2 x H (and so the "step" parameters is less than the width Wof the image).

Do I have to change the dimensions to W x H for all the three planes?



There is piece of code to check the error conditions in this function

/* test consistency */
IPP_BADARG_RET( ( roiSize.width > Step_Y), ippStsStrideErr);
IPP_BADARG_RET( ((roiSize.width >> 1) > Step_cB), ippStsStrideErr);
IPP_BADARG_RET( ((roiSize.width >> 1) > Step_cR), ippStsStrideErr);
IPP_BADARG_RET( ((roiSize.width << 1) > srcStep), ippStsStrideErr);

So, you can see, ippStsStrideErr returned when roi.with is not in allowed range.

Step is number of bytes between two adjacent raster lines. Note, source image here has twice more bytes than width (if you have no padding bytes).


Hi Vladimir, I solved the problem: the srcstep parameter has to be W * 2, where W is input image width.

Thanks for your help.


Hi Andrea,

Right, it is exactly what I was trying to say:)
