> Hello Arno, now I got the information that these DPX files are in 10bit
GRAYSCALE (which is not supported by ffmpeg or any other programm I know).
> The usecase for that format is to scan a black and white filmrole with
10bit grayscale.
> Do you know: Is it on the roadmap that ffmpeg will support this
non-commong grayscale format?

Open bug report with samples that are not supported.
