How to read Hamamatsu Photonics CXD files in ImageJ and save them as TIFF files automatically

I am using Hamamatsu Photonics ORCA Flash 4.0 with the accompanied image acquisition software, HCImage. After time-lapse recordings, I prefer to save the files in the CXD format. Multiple TIFF (MPTIFF) seems to split a file larger than 4.2 GB into pieces.


Now, how can I read the CXD file in ImageJ? Luckily enough, the Bio-Formats plugin (download site) can do the job.


When you have got a lot of recordings, you may find it helpful to use  a macro (CXD2TIFF_BatchProcess.txt)  that automate  importing and re-saving of the CXD files.
