Adobe supports only fully uncompressed raw not 3:1. You will need a professional program like Resolve for this.

You could make proxies in Resolve, with XML to premiere for editing. export Premiere XML for Resolve and check "Link to camera files" when importing.

I imported 268 BRAW shots captured at 3:1 into an existed project. 262 went great. 6 random shots were unrecognized. Easily viewed in finder, BRAW Player, and Resolve but not Premiere. Explain that. BM has some work to do. I cannot trust it yet.

This is a format that was requested upon release, and we were told that it was under review in December, and that was the last update on the subject. We are now two updates removed from when this format was requested and still nothing and no update. It is currently the second highest voted format request, just under ProRes RAW, and there has been no reason why this hasn't been added. It would be nice to get an answer that isn't "this is under review."

Can we get an answer?

Hi Steven,

  • This is a format that was requested upon release
  • We were told that it was under review in December, and that was the last update on the subject.
  • We are now two updates removed from when this format was requested and still nothing and no update.
  • It is currently the second highest voted format request, just under ProRes RAW
  • There has been no reason why this hasn't been added.
  • It would be nice to get an answer that isn't "this is under review."

Can we get an answer?

Last question first: Sorry. Not that we wouldn't like to, but we in support simply can't answer questions like this in the forums. Our job here is focused on support.

For dialog with the product team, and feature requests for Premiere Pro, please engage them on the User Voice forum on that specific post. Upvote it if you have not already done so.

The reason why is likely that there has not been enough time to develop support for a new format just yet. Keep in mind that development for new codecs is not very simple and can take quite a bit of time. Our directive to create 64 bit QuickTime codecs was quite an endeavor, for example.

All we can do is ask for your patience at this time. On behalf of Adobe, my apologies. I hope we can get this into your hands soon.

Thanks,
Kevin

Game changer.

https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/blackmagicursaminipro/blackmagicraw

Up to 12:1 visually lossless compression at 32-bpc. Playback rates over 300fps at 4.6k on an iMac Pro without any fancy eGPU boxen.

Unlike Adobe's dismal support for cinemaDNG, let's hope with a totally license-free open codec and cross-platform SDK this gets into Creative Cloud quickly.

They're either so scared that Davinci Resolve will steal more of their customers, that they'll refuse to support this codec; or will ignore all of it (together with Apple's ProRes RAW lobbying that's utterly financial) and just do the right thing. With Blackmagic Design offering an SDK immediately, Adobe has no excuse...

There's nothing to stop them technically, but corporate politics always calls the shots. Adobe's selling point for Pr was (used to be) that it's happy for you to dump any mix of codecs and formats onto a timeline, which was the big drawback of FCP and Resolve in the Davinci days. Resolve is better at codec support now, but it still barfs at the notion of mixing frame rates or CFR/VFR clips, so there are people "stuck" with Adobe who will expect the footage their crews are sending in will be playable without an hour of Cineform-isation.

I think it's going to hinge on the compression and transcoding ability rather than the range of cameras that can shoot it (BM's cameras are good, but they'll never have the market reach of RED/ARRI/Sony). Archiving a single file is much more attractive than hundreds of thousands of DNGs or TIFFs, even if you ignore the size reduction it's nightmarishly slow to push so many small files around a network. The json sidecar thing is something Adobe should have done with XMP files many years ago.

Adobe, PLEASE provide support for Blackmagic Raw (BRAW). I shoot on an Ursa Mini Pro and would be an idiot not to shoot BRAW, and I would love to continue using Premiere Pro as my editing platform.

When you install a plugin ... you need to close Premiere and then relaunch it. That is often something that trips users up, that need to restart. Perhaps that is the problem?

I had a closed program. Does the fact that I currently have a trial version matter?
should the Creative Cloud Desktop also be closed during installation?

I installed the plugin several times, also trying to repair at the instalation program.

I don't know if a trial version is an issue ... but perhaps it is. The CC Desktop app shouldn't be a problem though.

I’ve used premier for a long time but recently  finished my first BRAW project in Resolve. The codec is sublime, the editing tools in Resolve are not. This codec with Pr and Ae would be game changing.

Save us please Adobe, we give you loads and loads of money, after all!!

Dear Adobe I am so very disappointed and surprised that so many people have requested BRAW support in Adobe Premiere but it's still not there. I have been with you guys since getting my Canopus PC interface which came with Premiere 1.5. I have been an advocate for your software while everybody was swearing by FCP. When Red camera came out you were there on top of your game, when the DSLR tech hit with the Canon 5D Markll you were there while FCP users had to use a 3rd party software to to edit those files. You have been stellar and consistently on the cutting edge building in presets for cameras Arri,Red all the way down to a Go Pro. But now theres BRAW which is a very popular codec right now and i can't believe that now as a user of your products in specific Premiere pro for 16years that this late that I now have to rely on a 3rd party plugin in just like FCP had to do with the DSLR footage at its inception. Why? from what I hear DaVinci is hot on the trail like Samsung is on the iPhone but yet no support for BRAW I hope that it is merely because you're working on it and not brushing BRAW off. I remember when Blackberry wanted to keep their proprietary ways hmm they are no longer the hot ticket. I remember when Blockbuster was par for the course Redbox took em out. Right now Davinci is your predator given how many companies as I mentioned have fell from their pedestal I can't see why you not build BRAW into Adobe Premiere and give people a reason to switch to a  software that handles BRAW and just happens to be free. If you teold me your hands are tied and it's politics I could live with that. I enjoy your products but why after all these years  pull a Canon, Blackberry, Blockbuster, FCP move and ignore the market. Lets have some BRAW support please
