EXRMAKETILED(1) General Commands Manual EXRMAKETILED(1)


exrmaketiled - for generating tiled and rip/mipmapped images.


exrmaketiled [options] infile outfile


This manual page documents briefly the exrmaketiled command. This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

exrmaketiled reads an OpenEXR image from infile, produces a tiled version of the image, and saves the result in outfile.
