I would like to try and discourage you from producing files with 128 bits per sample to represent complex data.

No problem. I am still deciding what to do and any suggestion will be appreciated.

Couldn't you just produce files with two samples, and 64 (or 32) bits each?

You mean 2 images in the file, one with the real part and the other with the imaginary? It is a nice solution.

I realize there wouldn't be any explicit way of recognising them as a real/imaginary pair, but perhaps that could be accomplished by other means?

I knew that a scientific image processing program called Digital Micrograph from Gatan store complex values creating a new type for SampleFormat. But this is terrible, unless there are plans for doing it that I do not know.
