Description

- EXR (16bit half float, with support for all compression schemes, also the lossy ones)
- TIFF (float)
- DNG (float)

Regarding EXR:
It would also be great if DT had metadata preservation with this format.
In VFX facilities EXRs get used for most of the image data after plate scans and they are heavily annotated with metadata of all sorts.
When such an image is altered in DT and then exported as EXR again, such metadata must be preserved if DT should ever be useful in this line of work.
It could just be treated as a blind data blob internally since most of that data is commonly proprietary anyway.
