- 32 bit signed
- Offset 49 bytes
- Little-endian byte order
IMOD, for a 4K image,
"raw2mrc -o 49 -x 4096 -y 4096 -t long -c IntermediateImage_yyyymmdd_xxxxxx_n*.raw"
and then your choice of -u for unsigned integer output or -d to divide by 2, otherwise it will divide by 2.
If you have an IMOD installation somewhere and copy the files listed below to some dedicated folder on the microscope pc, you can convert the raw images to MRC stack on the microscope PC (no cygwin needed):
These are the two options that worked for me but there are more programs that deal with this raw format.
For future acquisition, the latest FEI EPU version writes the frames in a 16 bit MRC stack and SerialEM also handles Falcon frames conveniently and will write a 16 bit MRC stack, we use both at EMBL on our Krios/Falcon2.

I have my data in raw format from Falcon2 detector in movie frames but I am unable to convert it to other formats. I tried XMIPP but it says that files are corrupted. I have also tried imageJ and em2em but still unable to convert it. I also tried spider but the converted files look different.
