Technical Specifications

BRAW Studio is comprised of three installed plugins (the Importer and two plugins to access the RAW Settings), adding a new format to be imported (.braw) to Adobe CC (Premiere Pro, Media Encoder and After Effects). In Premiere Pro, you can access the Blackmagic RAW params (Exposure, Color Balance, ISO, Contrast etc.) in the Master tab of each clip Effects window; there's also a BRAW Studio Panel that fixes NTSC timecodes and import your footages metadata (Panel UI is available in Window top menu -> Extensions). On After Effects you will need to use the BRAW Studio Layer Settings effect.

Known bugs:

  • Adobe timecode bug : Media Start timecode for NTSC footage(23.98 fps, 29.97fps) is wrong. This also mean you can\'t export Final Cut Pro XML and import the timeline into DaVinci Resolve. Please follow our article to solve this issue. Please note that this is an Adobe bug you will experience even with Blackmagic plugin ! Correcting timecode leads to a new bug : DO NOT RELINK .braw files that have a corrected timecode. Only "Relocate" them and untick the "Align Timecode" checkbox. More information in this article

  • 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 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

Please use the 500 Frames Trial before buying and test the Blackmagic RAW plugin from Blackmagic Design
