Hello,

I am new to this list.

I was wondering if libtiff supports floating point format tiff? I am interested in both floating point grayscale images and floating point RGB images?

If there is support for this, how does one go about enabling it - does anything special need to be done in the configure/build for libtiff?

Is there some documentation for the floating point format and if so where might I find that. I see nothing about floating point format in the TIFF 6.0 Specs.

I also saw an old post about the potential for a complex (real and imaginary) tiff format? Did anything come from that.

My questions relate to the use of a floating point or complex format for generating FFT of images using the FFTW package and storing the results in a relevant TIFF format.

Thanks.
