Support for Nikon NRaw
Can we please get support for Nikon's NRAW codec? Resolve and Edius already have it cooked up and ready to go. This reactive rather proactive approach to codec integration is really disappointing. First it was Prores RAW (still ongoing issues) and now NRAW. How about Adobe show Nikon shooters a bit of love here?
Thanks for the feedback on N-RAW. It is a format we are interested in supporting but we don't currently have date for when that will happen. II will provide an update when I have more information to share.
Note: There were a couple of comments in the thread about ProRes RAW, including some useful tips. I have deleted those, as I want to make sure that this thread is dedicated to N-RAW. There is a separate thread regarding improving support for ProRes RAW.

Nikon isn't going to get rid of N-Raw at this point. They will settle with Red in some way and it will be here to stay. The Z-9 is a fantastic hybrid camera and will only get better. N-Raw is a very promising codec. I can edit B-Raw, and Prores Raw in the premiere so it seems like this shouldn't be a big ask. Like everyone else on here if Adobe won't support it then l will be headed to Davinci also, and from what I'm hearing that may not be a bad thing.

When we as a community decided to invest in a subscription-based model for Adobe products, it was with the understanding that Adobe would provide regular and timely updates.
The fact that we need to buy competitors' products to work with a professional format is very disappointing.
Is there not enough demand for it (there are, after all, only 33 'votes' as of today on this issue)?
Is there hesitation because of the lawsuit filed by RED?
Perhaps there are reasons behind that scenes that we are not aware of, but regardless of the reasons, the fact that Adobe is merely "interested" in supporting this format while competing companies have already implemented their solutions means that we must rely on those companies instead of Adobe.
I have always relied on Adobe, but in this case, that is unfortunately no longer possible...

If you define 'Critical' as moving to another program because Premiere does not offer it, then yes, I would call it critical.

I have recently been forced to purchase Resolve Studio because of this issue, and the day is fast approaching when I will not be renewing my cc subscription. I'm also discovering that Resolve has more to offer me, and much better performance too.
I’ve been using Premiere Pro for 13 years and it pains me to have to switch to another program. I am hoping that Adobe integrates N-Raw and full Prores Raw compatibility (WB controls) into Premiere Pro soon!

Premiere Pro quickly becoming an also-ran for me...
DAVID FULLER commented
I have stopped using Premiere completely because of this.
Ronald Lee commented
How can Adobe Premiere Pro be considered a professional NLE contender when it doesn't support the files coming out of one of the larger camera brand's cameras?
One would think that Premiere would have been ready to go with NRAW before NRAW was released, not a year after. Perhaps Adobe should repair its relationship with Nikon so this can happen?

Not really sure why this hasn't been implemented - but it is giving me reason to use resolve more and move away from CC

Throwing my hat in there with the crowd regarding the critical need for NRAW support. I am a member of numerous Nikon social media groups and the VAST majority of video shooters Ive interacted with edit with Adobe and we all assumed there would be reasonably fast support for NRAW when buying the rather expensive new flagship Z9. PLEASE prioritize development on this ASAP. I dont think any of us want to switch platforms to DaVinci but there isnt much choice when its the only game in town.

Every day I learn Resolve just a little bit more. Please support N-RAW soon. The Z9 isn't ubiquitous, but it is in the hands of a lot of people right now that are loving its video features. N-RAW is now the only format I shoot in, and I absolutely love it. I will leave Adobe if I have to. It has been out for months now and we get nary a peep from Adobe about supporting it, meanwhile plenty of other programs have supported it for some time now. You're driving us into the arms of BM and away from Adobe. Get it fixed.

Going to have to cancel my adobe subscription if Premiere doesn’t soon support NIKON NRAW, and go with Resolve. This is ridiculous
Jose D Rodriguez commented
Support for Nikon Nraw is critical.
John Hixon commented
Please add Nikon N-Raw support as soon as possible. Otherwise, your competitors will be siphoning all your Nikon customers.

The Z9 can ONLY do 8k/60p via N-RAW; ProRes RAW can only record up to 8k/30p. We have a use case that requires 60p frame-rate, and if at all possible we would rather NOT have to use Resolve to convert the footage first... before bringing them into Premiere. It's an extra workflow that significantly slows us down. Thanks!
Vincent Philpott commented
I know this has just come out, but it's an accessible, relatively affordable 8.3K 60fps & 4K 120 raw camera, with pretty good compression that seems to edit very well on Resolve - so it could well prove to be popular.

Premiere Pro cant import Nikons new Z9 N-RAW file format. please make it compatible ASAP
