Hi everyone! =) (sorry for english )
I got a question:
I want to use the video card to speed up the code for image processing.
But the problem is that: both CUDA and AMDStream minimum can handle only int type (32 bits), but i have the image 24bgr =(
How can I map(convert) 24bgt image quickly to proccess them on video card? or how to handle?

Now i use next sample code:

int* gpu_data ...
byte* image = ...
for (int i = 0; i < imageSize; i++)
  gpu_data = image;

and then i map gpu_data on int3 array, that each position in the matrix was the color-point? ... but one thing is already converting spend a lot of time =(((
What can i do?
