OpenEXR is a set of C++ libraries which implement a high-dynamic range (HDR) image file format for computer imaging. It supports 3 pixel types -- 16-bit floating-point, 32-bit floating-point, and 32-bit integer -- several forms of lossless compression, and one slightly lossy compression format for 32-bit floating-point data. Its 16-bit FP format is compatible with NVidia's 16-bit FP format.

OpenEXR was developed by Industrial Light & Magic and released as free software. It has been used on many feature films and is the standard file format for visual effects work at ILM.
