ENH: Document that conversion applications in otb don't support complex pixel types as output

Manuel Grizonnet requested to merge convert_apps_limitations into develop


For now complex pixel types are not supported by Convert and DynamicConvert applications (see switch/case in the generic DoExecute method). This commit just document this limitation.

Note that the ExtractROI application can be used to convert image from/to complex image.


Explain to user that comlpex pixel types are not supported yet by these applications even if complex pixel types can be selected for the output image.

Implementation Details


Convert and DynamicConvert has been changed. Convert is somehow deprecated and could be remove in a future version but I'm not sure that it is clear for user that they should use DynamicConvert now.
