The code is indeed dead atm. To quote myself from ticket 7886:
"Commit c64c97b972c7325a71440a352a7d541a8c92b2da has added support for
alpha channel decoding in Cineform HD (thereby fixing #6265), but
commit 9cefb9e7ec508900ba147e6977590f03456aa15c broke it again (the
function process_alpha introduced in the first commit is now not even
used any more -- thanks to Clang for reporting this). The sample
cineform_rgba_12b.mov from #6265 now decodes as before
