I looked into lossless compression options in OpenEXR and write a small post with the findings. Next up, trying to add/tweak more compression thingies! aras-p.info/blog/2021/08/04/EX

@ignaloidas haven't checked myself, but e.g. htslib.org/benchmarks/zlib.htm indicates that libdeflate is faster than cloudfare's zlib fork.

@aras@mastodon.gamedev.place Yeah, but hstlib benchmarks are a quite old, and AWS contributed the decompression performance improvements quite recently. I don't expect compression speeds to be higher, but decompression speeds might be higher with it, since some patches claim 30% improvement.
