    I am going a little crazy here. Is there really no "official" way to convert 2bytes to a float? Do you really have to roll your own? Seems strange.
    I am trying to look at the contents of the Motion Vector texture which is a R16G16_float texture and see the contents (sp the displacement) as floats. But I have yet to figure out how to do the conversion. I am checking here cause while rolling my own would be fun, how would I know if I am using the correct format? Would using this format be correct?
