Technical Specifications


BRAW Studio is a suite of plugins and panel, adding a new .braw format to be imported into Adobe Premiere Pro, Media Encoder, After Effects, Audition. Its basic features are FREE (importer + Source Settings effect), but you have access to much more with a Premium license !


In Premiere Pro, you can access the Blackmagic RAW Params in our brand new BRAW Studio Source Settings Panel (available in top menu : Window -> Extensions). This Panel also provides useful utilities and workflow features, for example batch applying parameters changes to many clips at once, extracting Embedded LUT, importing your footages metadata, a Toolbox tab etc. On After Effects you will be able to use the BRAW Studio Layer Settings effect to color grade your .BRAW which is impossible without BRAW Studio.


Requirements

  • One license is for the same user on up to two computers not used at the same time
  • Adobe CC 2019 to 2023 included
  • macOS Intel and Apple Silicon : 10.16 / 11 (Big Sur) to 13 (Ventura)
  • Microsoft Windows 10 and 11. 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

  • Please note all those bugs are from Adobe and you will also experience them using Blackmagic's PrPro plugin :
  • 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. The same problem happens when copy pasting the Source Settings effect from a BRAW file to another on Premiere Pro 2022 onwards. If you want to copy BRAW Settings, please use BRAW Studio Panel : there is a Copy and Paste button inside and it can be applied to a multiple BRAW selection.
  • Do not save / apply presets on the Source Settings, please read our article about alternative methods
  • Media Start timecode for 29.97fps NTSC footage is wrong. 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
