The PAN image format is associated with SmoothMove Panoramic Viewer, a program which allows you to display panoramic images by offering 360 degrees scrolling, both vertically and horizontally. The program has currently been discontinued. A PAN file contains a panoramic image and might be difficult to open outside SmoothMove, so opting for conversion is probably the best option.
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.
The quick and simple way to handle your files is to get a quality piece of software, such as reaConverter. Although it is fast, this software is extremely efficient in managing a wide range of conversions. As you will soon realize, reaConverter will help you avoid spending countless hours trying to figure out how to convert PANs. But at the same time, it will allow you to apply a wide range of editing options.
reaConverter is quick to download, install and launch, and you don't need to be an IT specialist in order to understand in a few minutes how it operates.
Start reaConverter and load all the .pan files you intend to convert into .cin because, as opposed to most free online converters, reaConverter supports batch conversion. So you can save the time and energy you would lose with doing repetitive operations.
Select PANs from a folder or by drag-and-dropping them directly into the reaConverter window.
Go to the Saving options tab and decide where you want to save new .cin files. You can also spend a few more moments to apply additional editing to the images prepared for conversion.
Then pick the CIN as output format. To help you do this, a series of buttons is conveniently placed at the bottom of the reaConverter window, so you can simply press on the one you need or click Plus button to add new options.
Then simply press the Start button and your conversion will begin in no time!Try Free Trial Version
