Technical Specifications


BRAW Studio is comprised of three installed plugins, adding a new .braw format to be imported to Adobe CC (Premiere Pro, Media Encoder and After Effects). In Premiere Pro, you can access the Blackmagic RAW params in our brand new BRAW Studio Source Settings Panel. This Panel also provides useful utility and workflow features, for example correcting NTSC timecodes and importing your footages metadata (Panel UI is available in Window top menu -> Extensions). On After Effects you will be able to use the BRAW Studio Layer Settings effect.

Requirements

  • One license is for the same user on up to two computers not used at the same time
  • macOS Intel and Apple Silicon : 10.14 (Mojave) to 12 (Monterey)
  • Microsoft Windows 10
  • Adobe CC 2017 to 2022 included
  • CPU : at least SSE4.1 instructions set. Most CPUs before 2008 are not compatible (e.g. AMD Phenom II. AMD Phenom II X6 is not compatible !). Compatibility with Intel starts with Core 2 Penryn architecture in 2008.This is a limitation of the BRAW API

Known bugs

  • You can't use properly the PrPro Project Manager with .braw files but you can use PlumePack instead
  • If you need to use Replace Clip feature in Premiere Pro to change one of your source by another, there could be conflicts afterward with the Source Settings (the ISO List could be wrong and the sidecar file will stay to its old path). However, after using Replace Clip, you can save your project, close and restart Premiere Pro and everything will be fine.
  • Do not save/apply preset on the Source Settings, please read our article about alternative methods
  • Adobe timecode bug : Media Start timecode for NTSC footage of 29.97fps is wrong (23.97fps footages also for old Premiere Pro versions before 14.3). This also means you can't export Final Cut Pro XML and import the timeline into DaVinci Resolve properly. Please follow our article to solve this issue
  • Please note all those bugs are from Adobe and you will also experience them using Blackmagic's PrPro plugin

Please use the 500 Frames Trial before buying !
