Class EXTTextureSRGB

  • public final class EXTTextureSRGB
    extends java.lang.Object
    Native bindings to the EXT_texture_sRGB extension.

    Conventional texture formats assume a linear color space. So for a conventional internal texture format such as GL_RGB8, the 256 discrete values for each 8-bit color component map linearly and uniformly to the [0,1] range.

    The sRGB color space is based on typical (non-linear) monitor characteristics expected in a dimly lit office. It has been standardized by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) as IEC 61966-2-1. The sRGB color space roughly corresponds to 2.2 gamma correction.

    This extension adds a few new uncompressed and compressed color texture formats with sRGB color components.

    Promoted to core in OpenGL 2.1.
