BRAW Studio Settings & License Popup

June 28th, 2020
The BRAW Studio Settings & License Popup is the place where you will register your license and change the global settings of BRAW Studio

What is it for ?

As indicated in its name, the "Settings & License" Popup need to be used for registering your BRAW Studio license or to change some of your BRAW Studio options.
You will also need it to activate debug logs and send us bug reports. There is an "Installation Diagnostic" button which will check if everything has been well installed in your computer.
There are different ways to open the BRAW Studio Settings & License popup, but any of those will let you register any Autokroma License.
If you want all the options to be displayed in the popup, you should open it from the BRAW Studio application, because otherwise only the concerned options will be available : if you open the popup from Premiere Pro for example, the After Effects options will not be displayed.
Don't forget to click on "Ok"
at the end when closing the popup if you want to save your change, and restart your Adobe applications (after registering license or changing an option).

The BRAW Studio options


You will also find some performance optimization options. It could improve your BRAW Studio performance, depending on your hardware setup.
Just try these options and see in your computer the difference ! You can enable the "Premiere Pro Dog Ears" to have some indications about the render engine's performance.
In order to enable/disable these "Dog Ears" (Premiere Pro feature), just use the shortcut :
Ctrl + Shift + F11
Cmd + Shift + F11
in OSX), then press SPACE to play your timeline with the information about the playback performance. Use the same shortcut to disable the messages.

Timecode Warning

If you are working with NTSC BRAW files (framerate 23.97 or 29.97), sometimes your timecode will be wrong in Premiere Pro. See our article about having a wrong BRAW timecode in Premiere Pro.
It can be good to know for some users if their timecode is good or not after import. However some don't care about it. We are displaying a yellow warning popup after import to warn about this wrong timecode. If you think this yellow popup is annoying, you can use this option to disable it.
