Converting ARI to CG4

ARI represents a RAW image format associated with an ARRI digital video camera. Such files most likely contain stills from a video clip and can be processed using digital post-production software. ARRI is one of the biggest providers of film equipment in the world and its cameras were used to film some of the most popular motion pictures in international cinema. An ARI file is usually large in size and can be difficult to store and transfer, like most RAW formats, but it can be converted to a more accessible extension.

CG4 is a raster format associated with CALS (Continuous Acquisition and Life-Cycle Support) — a program initiated by the US Department of Defense to capture and link military data. CG4 is compatible with a very limited number of digital graphics programs. Files with this extension contain a bitmap that often uses the CCITT4 compression, which is an old fax machine standard used for black-and-white images.
