I'm new to IPP and learning to use the image processing package. There are certain terms I'm not familiar in the memory allocation function ippiMalloc_<mod>(int widthPixels, int heightPixels, int* pStepBytes).
1. The third parameter is a pointer to the step in bytes through the image. What does "step" mean?
2. For mod, possible values include *_P3, which is "Data is made up of n discrete planar (non-interleaved) channels, with a separate pointer to each plane." What is a plane?
