What is a exr file?

OpenEXR is an open standard format created by Industrial Light and Magic, a subsidiary of Lucasfilm Ltd. The format is intended for digital visual effects production files. OpenEXR features 16-bit and 32-bit floating number pixel data storage. EXR files have a higher dynamic range than 8-bit file formats. While 8-bit files feature 20-70 steps per f-stop, EXR files render 1024 steps per f-stop. EXR files are usually compressed using lossless methods, but EXR is also a lossy compatible format. OpenEXR was designed using C++ and C programming language, which simplifies the process of reading and writing EXR files.  Other examples of video files include AVI, MPG and MP4
