Free your workflow from the constraints of highly compressed GOP based codecs and their associated artifacts. Replace them with clean images captured direct from the sensors of your camera channels using modern Intra-frame codecs.

The ProRes RAW Advantage

Creators are granted complete creative control of their video images in post-production as ProRes RAW combines the flexibility of RAW video with the real-time performance of ProRes. The format gives filmmakers incredible latitude when adjusting the look of their images and extending brightness and shadow detail – making ProRes RAW ideal for HDR workflows.

In addition to their groundbreaking combination of flexibility and performance, Apple ProRes RAW files are smaller than other RAW files – simplifying and accelerating file transfer, media management, and archiving. ProRes RAW files can easily be edited on most modern Apple Mac systems. ProRes RAW is fully supported in Final Cut Pro X along with a collection of other apps including ASSIMILATE SCRATCH, Colorfront, FilmLight Baselight, and Grass Valley Edius. Adobe Premiere Pro and Avid Media Composer are also set to support ProRes RAW in 2020.

Up to eight .cube LUTs can be loaded per recorder channel. The built-in AtomHDR engine also provides support for Rec.2100 standards with options to monitor in HDR for LOG, HLG and PQ and perform different output transfers. HDR can be output downstream using an EOTF transform for HLG, ST.2084 PQ in Rec.2020 or DCI-P3.
