The VisionX image formats allow for multiple channels, 3D images, image sequences and many pixel types. most traditional image formats only permit single byte images. The commands in this section provide the capability to convert images into the VisionX format from other formats and to export images from VisionX formats to other image formats. The main image import command is vfmt and the main image export command is vxport.

Command Function: Format Conversion
vfmt convert external image format to VisionX format (still in development)
some other capabilies in the older vformat
vxport Convert VisionX images to other fomats
vformat (depreciated, use vfmt) change image format to VisionX format
vxto (depreciated) change image format from VisionX format
vrawtovx Convert a raw image to VisionX format. useful for many non-standard image formats, if the image has a header use dd to skip over it
vxtoraw Write out the raw image data from a file

Command Function: Format Conversion Utilities (use by vfmt and vxport)
vxtotiff Generate tiff format image set for VisionX image sequences
vtifftovx Convert tiff format image or set of tiff images to VisionX format
vxtotiffs Generate tiff format image stack for VisionX image sequences
vpnmtovx Convert pnm files to VisionX format
vxtopnm Convert files from VisionX to pnm format (also supports ASCII format) all visionx programs can output pnm files by using a ",p" file extension
vxctops (depreciated) Convert VisionX image files to Postscript backup (old) version, use if "vxport -ps" (requires netpbm) is not available
vxtoagif Create animaetd gif from VisionX image sequence
vxtompeg Create mpeg video from VisionX image sequence
vmpegtovx Create mpeg VisionX image sequence from video
vstlatovx Convert ASCII stla file to VisionX polygon file
