Converting ICNS to CIN

ICNS is an image file format associated with icons of various sizes used by applications on Mac operation systems. Such files contain not just images, but also support 1-bit and 8-bit alpha channels. Creating and opening ICNS files is possible using some specialized Mac programs. Accessing ICNS files outside these programs is only possible if you convert them to more widely available formats.

The CIN or Kodak Cineon format is a raster graphics format originally associated with the process of film editing and production using the Cineon System designed by Kodak, developed during the 1990s. Though later on Kodak stopped producing this system, the CIN format remained popular especially in the process of creating visual effects. The format's main advantage is its ability to offer a high-quality rendering of scanned film negatives, thus allowing their future editing.
