render.library is an amiga shared library that serves an image processing kernel. it is an interface between truecolor and chunky graphics, and it supports all amiga-specific pixel and color schemes. render.library provides palette-management, histograms, alpha-channel processing, color reduction, rendering, dithering, scaling, texture-mapping, and lots of conversion functions.
