float point color value in Render Surface?

Recommended Posts

Short answer: no.

The internal rendering surface is not a GDI+ Bitmap. A Bitmap is created on-demand to alias the Surface, not the other way around. This is so that we retain full control over surface allocation and other details, but you can still use GDI+ for drawing where it is convenient or necessary to do so.

There are no plans for non-8-bit per pixel formats, and there's no way this could be added with a plugin since all code throughout the entire application assumes 32-bit BGRA. You could write a file handler plugin that imports an HDR image, but it would have to render it to 32-bit BGRA so that Paint.NET could handle it.
