    Hello everybody!

    (This post was co-authored by Tim Kurkoski (After Effects Product Owner), Andrew Cheyne (After Effects Engineering Manager), and Victoria Nece (After Effects Product Manager).)

    This thread has been sitting here for quite a while without a response. To start, we want to apologize for that. We haven’t been ignoring you or your feedback – this is just a particularly complex topic. That said, it’s time for us to check in with you, clarify a few things, and give you an idea of what we’re looking at for the future of After Effects, especially when it comes to performance.

    To start, we fully understand that you want After Effects to be as fast as it can be – utilizing your computer’s hardware resources to render as fast as possible. Over the last several years, we have been working on the performance of After Effects constantly. Sometimes those performance gains…

    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.

    How odd Antoine, I am running the Blackmagic RAW 1.5.1 plugin on macOS Catalina

    Dave Edwards commented  · 

    So kinda good news, Blackmagic has released an update to Blackmagic RAW - 1.5.1 which provides general performance and stability improvements.

    A nice surprise is that After Effects can now import .braw files too but you can NOT access RAW source settings to tweak anything and it doesn't seem to pick up and load an existing .sidecar file, this is also the case with dynamic linking from Premiere Pro to AE.

    I still want Adobe to natively support BRAW without using a plugin. Adobe says on their website "Any camera. Any format. Any platform.", this needs to be lived up to with native BRAW support in Adobe Video apps

    Dave Edwards commented  · 

    The fact that Blackmagic has just released a plugin for BRAW import support into Premiere Pro says a lot of Adobe's lack of inaction. No After Effects or Media Encoder support so I'm still holding out for Adobe at IBC to announce native BRAW support in Adobe video apps.

    Dave Edwards commented  · 

    Still no update... Starting to regret renewing my CC subscription as clearly Adobe is lagging behind being on the edge which I why I was drawn into Adobe in the first place.

    I would use the BRAW Studio plugin in the meantime in my workflow but I'm on macOS, so pretty much begging Adobe to add BRAW support to CC apps now.

    Dave Edwards commented  · 

    Premiere Pro has just had an update and still no Blackmagic RAW! Are you kidding me Adobe!

    Dave Edwards commented  · 

    Blackmagic has released Camera Update 6.2 today which brings Blackmagic RAW to the Pocket 4K. Adobe, don't be any more late to the party, BRAW needs adding to Premiere Pro sharpish!

    Dave Edwards commented  · 

    Please implement support for Blackmagic RAW as soon as possible Adobe. I am shocked to see this request isn't even under consideration yet.

    What you’re suggesting would lead to a full on revision of the feature – therefore I’d like to ask a couple of additional questions:
    what kind of footage do you usually try to stabilize with the Warp Stabilizer? And how much tweaking of the settings do you do on average?

    Thanks
    Patrick

    This is a great request that is certainly something we want to implement. Rest assured our engineers DO understand the importance of this feature and how to get the job done. We also know that the performance and stability of the app should be our #1 priority and that is where our focus is right now.

    Currently, Premiere uses the Lanczos method for intrinsic scale and rotation. Lanczos is an exceptionally high-quality interpolation method which generally yields better results than bicubic, bilinear or nearest neighbor. From reading the forum post, it seems that up-scaling is the real issue here. I suggest looking at the Detail-Preserving Upscale effect in After Effects. It does a really good job and gives you some parameters to tweak to fit your specific content.

    Relinking LUTs needs to be introduced. It is pain currently to relink LUTs if the LUT file is moved or the whole project is moved. It's a very time consuming process on large projects.

    I imagine Relinking LUTs should be built into the same interface as Relinking Missing Media, for this I believe the LUT file needs to be imported into the project like media files to allow this to work and a way to use these LUTs from the project panel in the Lumetri Colour Panel.
