Main Features

The missing piece in your Blackmagic workflow

  • Adobe Premiere Pro : Import and edit your .braw footages directly and natively with BRAW Studio for Adobe Premiere Pro ! And get your .BRAW metadata in Project Panel
  • Access the same RAW color parameters from DaVinci Resolve and Load / Save them thanks to .sidecar files. Using the official Blackmagic Color Science and Blackmagic RAW SDK
  • Adobe Media Encoder : re-encode and create proxies for your .braw
  • Adobe After Effects : import your .braw and access all RAW params with our BRAW Studio Layer Settings
  • BRAW Studio doesn't import .dng files

Constantly updated

BRAW Studio is constantly updated with Blackmagic latest features : new cameras supported (Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K and 6K, URSA Mini Pro G2), new RAW params added (color spaces, gammas, highlight recovery, embedded LUT), bug fixes, new features etc. All updates for the same version (1.X.Y) are free ! You can update the same way you installed BRAW Studio

    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; panel is also running automatically in the background). On After Effects you will need to use the Layer Settings effect.

    Known bugs:

    • "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. SOLUTION : use our BRAW Studio Panel included in our installer : [please follow our article right here](/blog/BRAW-Wrong-Timecode-Adobe-Premiere-Pro/). Please note that this is an Adobe bug you will experience even with Blackmagic plugin ! This causes the next known bug :
    • 23.98 / 29.97 fps : DO NOT RELINK .braw files. Only "Relocate" them with the advanced UI popup (or right click media and click "Link Media...") and untick the "Align Timecode" checkbox. If you relocated / relinked .braw with this checkbox enabled you'll suffer from shifts in the in / out points of the clips on your timelines. Please contact us if this happened to you! More information about this in this article : How do I avoid the Shift Issue in BRAW Studio ?
    • 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.

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