Just as G1 and G2 are different blocks, their "post-processor"
features are really different too.

The G2 core typically produces a tiled format, NV12_4L4,
and it an inline post-processor to convert that to linear NV12.

How does this work on the 8MM? What pixel format does it
produce natively?

It's hard to imagine the G2 block doesn't do linear NV12,
so I'm inclined to think it has that post-processing feature.

Thanks,
Ezequiel
