Color Space Converter Filter

This transform filter converts from one RGB color type to another RGB type, such as between 24-bit and 8-bit RGB color. Since this type of conversion is generally handled more efficiently within a video decompressor, the main use of the Color Space Converter is when the stream source consists of uncompressed RGB frames.
