What does 32FC1 mean? Intuitively it should just be floating point matrix of one channel but the process that I am receiving images from has an array of uint8.

How do I convert this data such that each pixel value is stored as an int?

32FC1 means that each pixel value is stored as one channel floating point with single precision

Thank you. I updated the question asking about conversion of said values.

The data I am receiving is not in an opencv mat. It's coming from another process which uses the opencv 32fc1 encoding convention but the data is received as a uint8[]. How do I arrange this so I can use the convertTo function?

Sorry, but it is not clear what type of conversion you want to do? What you have on the input? What you want to get at the output?

@2ros0 did you solve converting problem?

@sturkmen no, I worked around it by converting into int at an earlier step - would still be useful to know how to interpret the bytes to convert to int though.
