Support Blackmagic RAW
Please add support for Blackmagic RAW .BRAW files as soon as possible! This would be a tremendous help to our workflow! .BRAW was released today: https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/blackmagicursaminipro/blackmagicraw
Thanks for all the feedback. It’s pretty clear that we’ve got to look into the workflow using this format more closely, there are enough reports about gaps at this point to reopen this item. I’ll post more info about next steps shortly. In the meantime, a couple of questions are easy to answer:
- The plugin is designed for Premiere Pro. It currently doesn’t provide support for After Effects.
- It does work with AME, so if you want to use it for batch processing, that’s very doable
- If you’ve started a project with Autokroma, there’s no easy way to transfer it to be running with the new plugin.
Ryder which problem are you talking about ?
Ryder Ansell commented
We had this problem and it was driving us crazy...Did all the suggested deleting of cache files, reinstalling etc etc etc. Sometimes it would work. Other times we'd be stuck not able to work, losing half days/days way too often.
So one day I decided to try something...I created a brand new project in premiere with nothing inside of it. Then I opened up the project that was giving me trouble. And it worked. And then it worked again and again. So we just keep a blank project on the server called "Tiny Project" (name it whatever you'd like :)...And we always open that first. I'm not sure WHY it works but I'm sure there's some explanation with how Premiere launches and recalls files blah blah. But it works. And I got on this board to tell you bc I know your pain.

It seems that Adobe has still not heard its users ...
2 years and still no possibility to use the BRAW in a native and powerful way!
Are we to believe that you don't need us to live?
BRAW Studio is now compatible with Apple silicon (M1 CPU) and After Effects MFR in 2022 BETA
Free update to v2.5.1 here https://www.autokroma.com/BRAW_Studio/Download
Is anyone working with Premiere Pro Productions collaboration tools here ? Warning, some things might go wrong with your color grading ! Luckily we studied those case and provide some guidance as well as a new button in our PrPro Panel to help you overcome the issues :
BRAW and Productions Collaboration tools in Premiere Pro
BRAW Studio : Batch apply color grades to 100 .BRAW at once, in a few clicks
In this tutorial you'll learn how you can batch apply whole .BRAW color grades to dozens of footages in our PrPro Panel, a Lumetri-like Source Settings panel with tons of bonus features specialized in Blackmagic RAW
For those who were confused about how to use our new BRAW Studio Premiere Pro Panel we have a new series of video to explain it ! For example our first tutorial is available here
How to color grade Blackmagic RAW in Premiere Pro with BRAW Studio Panel
Please share to anyone who could be interested :)

And it’s been almost 2 years since Adobe’s Patrick Palmer said they were looking into BRAW support. Wonder if Patrick is even involved or with Adobe anymore.
John Richard commented
Oct 2020. At this late date it’s been made very clear Adobe will not “natively support” the BRAW codec as advertised.
Adobe has added support for many newer camera codecs such as the recent ProResRaw while bypassing BRAW. They rightly see Blackmagic as a formidable competitor with Resolve.
Dave Edwards commented
Still no update on this!? It's been over a year since Patrick said he will post more info about the next steps shortly. Shows that Adobe really doesn't care about providing native support for BRAW
Beware everyone, the Blackmagic Premiere Pro plugin is still buggy even in the latest version 1.8.1, for example the Exposure Slider doesn't have any effect ! https://forum.blackmagicdesign.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=110290

It’s been 2 years since the format was released now. On my latest project I have had to bin off premiere pro and move the whole thing into resolve. I pay for this software, I don’t for davinci, even avid media composer first (the free one) provides better support. Is anyone at adobe even bothering to develop native support? I don’t want to buy a plug-in.
Hi everyone, if you have some feedback for BRAW Studio, new features / ideas for us or what you're struggling with right now in your workflow here's a poll for you https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdp9mJ9CS_1GsMR2b9qH9W45U3Xl5wl8AOB_AQD74cBMwq9Fg/viewform
We would be glad you fill it and we will try to listen to everyone, see if we can help :)

I don't know if it's Autokromas plan, but the best solution for us users would be if Adobe bought or licensed the BRAW Studio and incorporated it into the Creative Cloud apps. With the 12k Ursa coming, I can't see BlackmagicRaw going away.
Hey guys, I would consider testing out BRAW Studio https://www.autokroma.com/BRAW_Studio
We were the first to bring Blackmagic RAW import into Premiere Pro back in January 2019. If you run into any issues contact us on our website https://www.autokroma.com/contact
Our latest feature is our BRAW Studio Panel for Premiere Pro check it out https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=PL95F-QjAL6dFNQzsm-E3xKcwHPjmBnJaf&v=w4REl_U8K6c&feature=emb_title

Yes, it’s unusable- crashed maybe 8 times in an hour for me yesterday. I’ve lost time and money dealing with this and the most frustrating part is that this community has been asking to have this properly and reliably supported for 2 YEARS! We’ve been pacified with inadequate developments that haven’t been properly thought through or executed. It’s just not good enough in my opinion.
paul wedel commented
Totally agree. The latest BRaw plugin from Blackmagic let’s you load the footage and play it. But the moment I hit the Master settings to adjust the raw settings, PP2020 just hangs, spinning ball of doom, force quit. This is across 3 different machines, all running the latest PP2020 build, latest braw plugin. Making the work on a 6 cam shoot, 4 ursa 2 pocket cine, incredibly frustrating. Ended up baking everything to Prores from within Davinci Resolve because there literally is no native support within PP2020 for Braw. Please address this. It is a very popular set of cameras.
James Alton commented
The buggiest software I've ever used. Crashes every 5 minutes... before auto-save can even save! BRAW 1.8 is NOT suitable for production. Please help advise Blackmagic so this software can be stable, useful and helpful!
Anthony Arriaga commented
It's a sad day that I have to get solicited to by a third-party on the Adobe form for an update that should have been already included can we quit the politics already and support the file format already
Scott Warren commented
Any updates? It's been a long time.
