Description Daniel Helgenberger 2017-11-14 12:38:38 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #838748 +++

Reopening, as ImageMagick 7.0.4-3 is missing EXR support again:

# convert -version | grep Delegates
Delegates (built-in): bzlib cairo djvu fftw fontconfig fpx freetype gslib jng jpeg lcms ltdl lzma pangocairo png ps tiff webp wmf x xml zlib

Workaround: Downgrade to ImageMagick 6.7.8-9, which comes with EXR support:
# convert -list format | grep EXR
      EXR  EXR       rw-   High Dynamic-range (HDR)

** Original comment by **

3. What is the nature and description of the request?

Please enable OpenEXR support in ImageMagick.

Simply add an additional "BuildRequires" line to the ImageMagick spec file
before building:

BuildRequires: OpenEXR-devel


*NOTE: We (Red Hat) already have the OpenEXR-devel package available in our
RHEL Optional channels.*

4. Why does the customer need this? (List the business requirements here)

OpenEXR is a high dynamic-range (HDR) image file format developed by
Industrial Light & Magic for use in computer imaging applications.

OpenEXR is used by ILM on all motion pictures currently in production. The
first movies to employ OpenEXR were Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone,
Men in Black II, Gangs of New York, and Signs. Since then, OpenEXR has
become ILM's main image file format. 

Customer has a need for OpenEXR support since they regularly interact with
images that are in this format. We already make both ImageMagick and the
OpenEXR-devel packages available externally. It would be a boon to their
work-flow to have the pieces already put together.

5. How would the customer like to achieve this? (List the functional
requirements here)

Having access to ImageMagick with OpenEXR support included.

6. For each functional requirement listed in question 4, specify how Red Hat
and the customer can test to confirm the requirement is successfully

* The ability to create/manipulate OpenEXR images with ImageMagick

# convert -list format | grep -i exr
      EXR  EXR       rw-   High Dynamic-range (HDR)

7. Is there already an existing RFE upstream or in Red Hat bugzilla?


8. Does the customer have any specific timeline dependencies?

If a 6.2 z-stream release is possible that would be optimal.

9. Is the sales team involved in this request and do they have any
additional input?


10. List any affected packages


11. Would the customer be able to assist in testing this functionality if

** Original comment by **

Given that we already ship OpenEXR ... this seems pretty simple.

--- Additional comment from RHEL Product and Program Management on 2013-10-14 02:34:33 CEST ---

This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unable to address this
request at this time.

Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate, in the next release of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Comment 3 Jan Horak 2017-11-14 14:46:45 UTC
Hm, where did you get ImageMagick 7.0.4-3 from? It is not provided by RHEL 7.4, the RHEL 7.4 provides just ImageMagick- Could you please clarify it?

Sorry, clearly my bad. This was a third party install.
Thanks, closing.
