RAW to HDF5 Application

This application allows you to read events from a RAW file and convert them to an HDF5 event file.

The source code of this application can be found in <install-prefix>/share/metavision/sdk/driver/apps/metavision_file_to_hdf5 when installing Metavision SDK from installer or packages. For other deployment methods, check the page Path of Samples.

Expected Output

The application reads data from a RAW file, converts them to an HDF5 event file and saves the HDF5 event file to the same directory as the input RAW file.


As the output file will be written to the same directory as the input file, ensure that you have write permission in the directory with the input RAW file.

How to start

You can directly execute pre-compiled binary installed with Metavision SDK or compile the source code as described in this tutorial.

To start the pre-compiled executable, provide the full path to a RAW file:


metavision_file_to_hdf5 -i FILE_NAME.raw


metavision_file_to_hdf5.exe -i FILE_NAME.raw
