I did post a message on here before, basically what I would like to do is to modify GIMP to be able to handle 48-bit images, I would then like to write a plugin that would then be able read in a digital cameras RAW mode image (36-bit interpolated into 48-bit).
I have had a look at the code, yes it is very complicated, but now I am thinking it won't be possible to get full support for 48-bit in the time I have, but if I can just read in the image and perhaps perform a simple operation that would be sufficient proof of concept. I am actually doing this on Windows platform, and using version 1.2 from CVS and patched with the diff file from http://www.gimp.org/~tml/gimp/win32/downloads.html. This is actually being done as a University project, hence it doesn't have to be completed in full. If any one does know of any useful information on the core I would be very grateful.
