How to License BRAW Studio in Premiere Pro

In order to remove BRAW Studio 500 frames import trial limit, you’ll need to license it in the Settings popup : this is where you’ll also find BRAW Studio global settings (such as writing logs, more options might be available later). Here’s how in Premiere Pro :

  1. Import a .BRAW file
  2. Open the BRAW Studio Source Settings : add the new clip to a timeline (or create a new sequence from the clip and open the new timeline created), then go to Effects Options panel, and you will see two tabs at the top. Source Settings will be the first tab prefixed “Masterclip”. This is where you’ll be able to change all the RAW import params for your .BRAW clips and change the way they are interpreted by BRAW Studio (see top left of the above image)
  3. In the BRAW Studio Source Settings, just click on the “Settings & Licensing” button
  4. In the Settings tab you can paste the license you copied at the first step. If you’re on Mac OSX you can use the “Paste Clipboard” button because COMMAND+V is not working.
  5. Click the Activate button. Please note you can enter any license for any Autokroma product here (so also BRAW Studio for Media Encoder)
  6. Click OK and restart Premiere Pro and you shouldn’t be in Trial mode anymore
  7. Please empty your media cache just in case you still have 500 frames trial image in the cache : How to clean (delete or trash) media cache files?

How to License BRAW Studio in Media Encoder

You can enter your BRAW Studio for Media Encoder license the same way you did it for Premiere Pro as long as you restart Media Encoder it will work. If you want to do it from Media Encoder here’s how to do it :

On Adobe Media Encoder, all you have to do is import a .BRAW file into your render queue, click right and select “Source Settings…” and the same BRAW Studio Settings popup will be displayed (see image above). Please note that it won’t work with a PPro project, only for a .BRAW file

Now that you restarted Premiere Pro & Media Encoder and emptied your media cache you can finally edit and re-encode your .BRAW !
