Hi Jim.

Thanks for the quick response.


I recently met a syn format when processing scan data from a SonoTouch ultrasound scanner that exports cine files in cin format.


The CIN file is a Kodak Cineon Image- see:



I tried to convert the exported video "usimage200001010021041935.cin" to avi format.


The FFmpeg command:

>ffmpeg -i usimage200001010021041935.cin usimage200001010021041935.avi

And the result is:

"usimage200001010021041935.cin: Invalid data found when processing input"

Hello, Peter:


Welcome to the ffmpeg-user list. I am not a great expert on *.cin files or on FFmpeg, but I have seen over time that on this list you get better help by providing some basic information:


1. Try your task with the current version of FFmpeg as downloaded from links on ffmpeg.org.


2. Show us the exact, complete, uncut command line which you used.


3. Show us the exact, complete, uncut output to the terminal from #2.


4. Tell us about the *.cin files. What format is that?  What kind of content is in it? Audio? Video? What resolution? What frame rate?


5. What are you expecting will happen?


6. What do you observe actually happening?


I hope that helps you get started. Good luck!
