[Tig] GraphicsMagick DPX bug, update needed!
Sat Oct 1 21:12:45 BST 2005
All of the GraphicsMagick snapshots prior to 1.2.020051001 (issued
today) have a bug in that the last position in text header fields is
reserved for a null byte. This is a problem since text header fields
in DPX are not null terminated and some of the fields in the motion
picture part of the header need all of the space. As a result, a few
header fields were corrupted when a file was converted.
The development snapshots may be downloaded from
If you have installed a previous snapshot of GraphicsMagick, please
As a reminder, when building from source code, please make sure to
supply the option --with-quantum-depth=16 so that internal sample
storage is 16 bits.
Many thanks to the user who discovered and reported the bug.
