Planar RGB (8BPS) Codec

The Planar RGB codec (fourcc 8BPS) is used to compress frames in Apple Quicktime files. It's a simple codec that stores frames in RGB format (24 bit or paletted), in planar format (first all red samples, then the green ones and finally the blue), using an RLE algorithm. Each chunk of data encodes a single frame.

The format allows you to encode lines shorter than image width, so you could do a partial update of the frame.
