Converts a Planar2 image to a Planar8 image.


func vImageConvert_Planar2toPlanar8(_ src: UnsafePointer<vImage_Buffer>, _ dest: UnsafePointer<vImage_Buffer>, _ flags: vImage_Flags) -> vImage_Error



A pointer to the source vImage buffer object. Because the source pixel format is smaller than a byte, there are multiple pixels in each byte of the data buffer. These pixels are interpreted as being in big endian order (that is, the low-indexed pixel is in the high-order bits of the byte).

Sub-byte indexing of scanlines is unsupported, because the data and rowBytes fields of the buffer are specified in whole bytes.

Widths, however, are measured in pixels, so a scanline may end in the middle of a byte. If this occurs, the contents of any unused bits of the final byte are ignored.


A pointer to a vImage buffer data structure. You're responsible for filling out the height, width, and rowBytes fields of this structure, and for allocating a data buffer of the appropriate size. On return, the data buffer this structure points to contains the destination image data. When you no longer need the data buffer, you must deallocate the memory.


The options to use when performing the operation. If you plan to perform your own tiling or use multithreading, pass kvImageDoNotTile.

Return Value

kvImageNoError; otherwise, one of the error codes described in Data Types and Constants.


For each pixel in the destination image, the resulting value is the corresponding pixel value from the source image multiplied by 85.
