I'm trying to import MXF files from the new Alexa Mini LF and I keep getting an "unsupported format" error. Will there be a camera raw update in the near future for Adobe? 

 

In the meantime, what is the workflow for exporting an XML based off proxy files? My color grader will work off the RAW files for DaVinci Resolve.

Can you share what codec you are using? Is this ARRIRAW in an MXF wrapper or ProRes?

It's good to finally see a rep from Adobe responding.  I have also posted about this and have seen no response from Adobe.  This is a recurring issue that has been known since the reease of the Mini LF.  It has been confirmed by ARRI, they said the issue is relating to the SDK version in Premiere, the problem is addressed in V6.  That said, have not been provided with an implementation timeline by Adobe.

WHEN IS ADOBE GOING TO FIX THIS ISSUE?????!!!!  

...or should we just all migrate to DaVinci where is works without issue.?

Yes, let's see.  Adobe needs to take this seriously.... neglecting to provide support for ARRI RAW from the MINI LF means they are not taking the professional community seriously.  I was honestly shocked to hear from ARRI how long they have been trying to get ARRI to address this.  The fact that Adobe came out with another important update this week and continued to not not address this issue is beypnd frustrating.  @Francis-Crossman

I was just able to imort an arriraw (.ari) file from Alexa LF into PPro 14.7 without issue.  Would you be able to send us a short sample of the MXF files that do not import?

I would be happy to send you a file.  Please let me know where to send it.  The issue is not with Alexa LF but MINI LF RAW.

Thanks for popping in, Francis!

 

This is something I've seen from several users of the Alexa Mini.

Have there been any developments on this issue?  I ran the latest updates and am now having different errors, the footage doesn't come in at the correct resolution, no image images show and the following messages come up...

We have identified a fix to this issue and you can test that out in Premiere Pro Beta right now.  We don't yet know exactly which public release this fix will go into, but it should be soon.

In the CC Desktop app there's a tab for public beta apps. You can download and run the public beta alongside the shipping version.

For all the public beta apps there's a few icons in the upper right corner. One is a chat bubble I think, and that takes you to the public beta forum for that app which is where the developers track issues.

 

So click on that icon, and post "over there" also please.
