#616 closed enhancement (wontfix)

HEVC single frame encoding support

As can be seen here: Lossy Compressed Image Formats Study, HEVC beats jpeg and webp in terms of efficiency.

It would be interesting to see if it is fast, or at least if we can tune the speed.

The implementation used in the benchmarks above is here:

The layout of this project is very windowsy, in other words: bad and messy.

It seems that it produces some static libraries:

$ ls -la lib/libTLibEncoderStatic*
-rw-rw-r--. 1 antoine antoine  828198 Dec 27 22:20 lib/libTLibEncoderStatic.a
-rw-rw-r--. 1 antoine antoine 6025250 Dec 27 22:20 lib/libTLibEncoderStaticd.a

I assume the "d" is the debug version.
The first one has over 3000 symbols in it, the second one over 11000...

The sample encoder app has 2400 lines of code dedicated to configuring the encoder - oh joy.

Is this for real!?

#784 is more likely to succeed.
