Without modifying Adobe timecode and without experiencing timeline shifts after footage relocation because of the Adobe timecode fix.

After Effects :
Fixed crash in the Layer Settings which could happen when decoding at 1/3 resolution
Improved error message when applying the Layer Settings in a Layer not connected to a Source (Text, Null Object etc.)
Fixed : when the Layer Settings is disabled (abnormal situation), the Settings & License button was not working
Now that the Importer produces directly 32 bits image (16 bits was used before instead) the whole BRAW Studio pipeline can work in 32 bits : you can mix both Importer and Layer Settings in the same 32 bpc project
Premiere Pro : now a project that started with the Blackmagic RAW Plugin, opened with BRAW Studio, will try to inform you with a better message (before it was about "Handle Size")

MediaCore folder plugin was renamed "BRAW Studio" on Windows for that effect and BMD disable / uninstall buttons removed in the Settings & License popup.

"Diagnostics" button in the Settings & License Popup in case if BRAW Studio is not installed properly

The Shift correction feature (Panel) stopped working but now has been fixed
User Guide in .PDF removed from downloaded .ZIP now that all information is available online at https://www.autokroma.com/BRAW_Studio/User_Guide/
Licensing bug fix
Fixed on Windows : BRAW Studio 1.7.1 and 1.7.0 plugins couldn't load because cudart64_100.dll wasn't found
Fixed : When copying/pasting Source Settings, if White Balance Preset was "AsShot" there could be undesired behavior afterwards
WARNING : Previous 1.7.0 version SHOULD NOT be used, it is broken because of our tests related to the next BRAW Studio for After Effects BETA (Contact us to participate!) and projects saved with that version might not work in the future. Do not use it and update to 1.7.1 !

BRAW API 1.5 update : now that Blackmagic has a new plugin, BRAW Studio will take priority over it by default : you can disable this in the Settings popup. You'll need to restart Adobe software to take that change into account
"Decode Using : Clip" is now called "Decode Using : Custom" : the term "Clip" was taken from Resolve, but has multiple meaning in Premiere Pro, which can be confusing. BRAW Studio Source Settings applies for all instances of the Source Clip on all timelines of the current project. "Clip" is also used to refer to instances of Source Clips in timelines; they can have different properties and effect without affecting the Source Clip imported.
LUT (Embedded or from Sidecar) is working now with Load / Save Sidecar buttons : it will store the state of the LUT (Disabled / Embedded / Sidecar) but not the data.
Fixed Load Sidecar issue : if Gamma was "Blackmagic Design Custom", Gamma Controls were not loaded correctly
BRAW_Studio.prm (.bundle on Mac) has been renamed to BRAW_Studio_Importer.prm (.bundle on Mac) to not mix it up with our new BRAW_Studio.exe (.app on Mac)

Fixed : Memory leaks
Fixed : In Trial mode, BRAW Studio was taking too much memory when too many clips were loaded
Source Settings :
Color Science dropdown list has been removed from GUI to make it simpler (It was disabled all the time before because only one choice was available : Color Science Version 4)
Fixed : When loading sidecar, White Balance Preset was set to "Custom" even though values corresponded to "As Shot"
Added a new pixel format for slight performance improvement on Windows
Added 16 bpc pixel formats : for example you can now extract high quality TIFF out of your .BRAW!
BRAW Studio Hidden Panel removed :
Please use the usual GUI Panel (Top menu Window -> Extensions) to fix your NTSC timecodes and import your .braw metadata ! It's not done automatically (in background) anymore
Fixed : Premiere Pro being slow when editing on timeline
Fixed : Unable to "Undo" (CTRL+Z) last actions in some cases
Fixed : When batch importing lots of .braw, the Hidden Panel was working too much and users could consider it as a crash
No Shift issue if users don't want to correct timecodes (used to fix XML Export for DaVinci Resolve see https://www.autokroma.com/blog/Clip-Shifted-Issue-BRAW-Studio/ )

WARNING : DO NOT RELINK .braw files. Only "Relocate" them with the advanced UI and untick the "Align Timecode" checkbox If you relocated / relinked .braw that have 23.98 / 29.97 fps you'll suffer from shifts in the in / out points of the clips on your timelines Please contact us if this happened to you!

Sidecar LUT is the one in the sidecar file next to the braw file. Sidecar LUT is loaded when PPro starts or when the clip is imported
The "Save Sidecar" and "Load Sidecar" buttons in Clip Mode are not concerned : LUT will not be saved in Sidecar and not loaded with these buttons
These new parameters are invisible if no Embedded or Sidecar LUT are available, only one choice in the dropdown if only one of them is available
