Fortis MAG Files

Postby mdsantos » Tue Jun 27, 2017 12:11 pm


I have a project to convert some couple of millions of MAG files (Fortis) to PDF or TIFF. I tried XnConvert Wich is a great tool, but.... in a four files sample I got , only 1 has converted with success. The others give me the following error:

nconvert -multi -c 7 -dpi 200 -out tiff -o e:\ficheirosmag\006AFCC1.tif e:\FicheirosMAG\006AFCC1.MAG

my_error_exit...<Not a JPEG file: starts with 0x57 0x54>
my_error_exit...<Not a JPEG file: starts with 0x57 0x54>
Error: Don't know how to read this picture (e:\FicheirosMAG\006AFCC1.MAG)

All MAG files are scanned documents, i.e. images. Can anybody help me?

Your code only has one input file, so I guess that MAG is a multi-page format?

If what you are trying to do is possible using NConvert, I'm not sure, you could try adding a -xall term which is the switch for extracting images from multi-page files...

Note: You've posted under the XnConvert section which is a GUI program, rather than under the NConvert command line software heading, but a mod can move it later.

Return to “XnConvert”
