Blackmagic RAW

The world’s fastest RAW format with better quality and better features

Blackmagic RAW is a revolutionary new and very modern codec that’s easier to use and much better quality than popular video formats, but with all the benefits of RAW recording. Featuring multiple new technologies, such as a new advanced de-mosaic algorithm, Blackmagic RAW gives you visually lossless images that are ideal for high resolution, high frame rate and high dynamic range workflows. Incredible image quality, extensive metadata support and highly optimized GPU and CPU accelerated processing make Blackmagic RAW the world’s first codec that can be used for acquisition, post production and finishing. Blackmagic RAW is a totally new design, plus it’s cross platform, freely available and includes a developer SDK so anyone can add support for Blackmagic RAW to their own software.

Next Generation RAW Codec

The quality of RAW at the speed of video

Working with traditional RAW formats is difficult because the files are huge, they’re proprietary and extremely processor intensive, which makes them slow and inefficient. While working with traditional video codecs is faster, quality is damaged because of the limitation to 10 bit and the 4:2:2 video filter that’s used which dramatically reduces colour detail. Blackmagic Design engineers have spent years solving these problems and have created a new RAW codec that moves part of the de-mosaic processing from the computer’s CPU into the camera itself, resulting in incredibly efficient encoding for an entirely new high performance RAW experience. With Blackmagic RAW, you get the same quality, bit depth, dynamic range and controls as RAW, with better performance and even smaller file sizes than traditional video codecs.

Perfect for High End Feature Films and Television

Cinematic quality images that you can use for all your work

The incredible quality and speed of Blackmagic RAW makes it ideal for virtually any type of production. The pristine camera native quality of Blackmagic RAW Q0 or 3:1 is perfect for effects heavy feature film and commercial work, where you need the highest possible quality. Blackmagic RAW Q5 and 5:1 are extremely high quality making them great for episodic television and independent films. Blackmagic RAW quality is so high, you can even use 8:1 and 12:1 settings for incredibly small files that are suitable for all kinds of uses such as broadcast news, live sport events, digital signage, A/V, corporate video, weddings and more.

New Advanced De?Mosaic

Partial de-mosaic in the camera hardware allows maximum speed playback

The new advanced de-mosaic algorithm is a central component of Blackmagic RAW. Part of the RAW processing is moved out of software and into the camera, where it can be accelerated. Noise management, sensor profiling and new edge reconstruction algorithms are used to produce high quality cinematic images with incredible depth, crisp details and beautiful image separation. The partially de?mosaiced images, along with the unique characteristics of the image sensor, are encoded and saved into the Blackmagic RAW file so you get total control over features such as ISO, white balance, exposure, contrast, saturation and more. The partial in camera accelerated de?mosaic allows for extremely efficient compression. This results in significantly reduced processing on your computer, making it faster to decode and use the files while retaining the sensor data needed for full RAW control.

Generation 4 Colour Science

Accurate skin tones and faithful colour reproduction

Blackmagic RAW uses Blackmagic Design Generation 4 Colour Science for reproducing extremely accurate skin tones and gorgeous, lifelike colours that rival those of cameras costing tens of thousands of dollars more! Images are encoded using a custom non?linear 12?bit space designed to provide the maximum amount of colour data and dynamic range. Unlike traditional RAW workflows that rely on LUTs which alter the pixel data in a harsh way, Blackmagic RAW is non destructive. It harnesses the power of metadata to ensure that the creative vision of the cinematographer is carried through to post production. Most importantly, the free SDK lets third party software applications use the embedded sensor profile metadata if required, as well as Blackmagic Design colour science for predictable and accurate image rendering that yields consistent colour throughout the entire pipeline.

2 Separate Encoding Methods

Constant bitrate or constant quality encoding gives you total control

Blackmagic RAW features both constant quality and constant bitrate encoding options, giving you the flexibility to prioritize image quality or file size so you can better tailor your production costs.

Constant Bitrate

High quality images and predictable file sizes

The constant bitrate encoding option is very similar to most codecs that are set to never exceed a specific data rate. The four constant bitrate variations are Blackmagic RAW 3:1, 5:1, 8:1 and 12:1. These ratios are based on the unprocessed file size of a single frame from the camera’s sensor, making it easy to understand the relative amount of compression being used. The constant bitrate variations are designed to give you the best possible images with predictable and consistent file sizes.

Constant Quality

Variable bitrate encoding for guaranteed quality

The new constant quality options preserve image quality by completely removing the upper data limit. That means complex frames will be encoded at higher data rates to preserve detail and maintain quality. Only constant quality ensures quality levels never suffer. Blackmagic RAW Q0 has minimum quantization and yields the highest possible quality, while Blackmagic RAW Q5 uses moderate quantization for more efficient encoding and a smaller file size.

Extremely Fast RAW Performance

The world’s fastest RAW codec for better render speed on complex projects

Unlike traditional RAW formats, which are slow and processor intensive, Blackmagic RAW is designed to accelerate your post production workflow. It’s highly optimized for AVX, AVX2 and SSE4.1 enabled processors, it’s multi?threaded and it works across multiple CPU cores. In addition, Blackmagic RAW is also GPU accelerated and works with Apple Metal, CUDA and OpenCL. Frame decoding and image processing is extremely fast, making Blackmagic RAW super smooth for editing, colour correction and visual effects in DaVinci Resolve. Best of all, clips are stored as single files, not image sequences. That makes media management easier and file transfers faster than other RAW formats. Blackmagic RAW performance scales as processors and GPUs get faster, making it the only codec that’s ready for tomorrow’s higher resolution and higher frame rate formats.

Next Generation Metadata

Supports embedded metadata or user customizable sidecar metadata files

Blackmagic RAW and the .braw SDK feature highly descriptive and flexible metadata options that are designed to support today’s modern workflows. The SDK takes care of all the work for developers, so supporting Blackmagic RAW is easy and fast. Using the Blackmagic RAW SDK means you get flawless handling of all camera metadata such as lens information, iris, ISO, colour space, slate information and much, much more. Metadata is embedded directly into the .braw file. In addition, .sidecar files that contain fully editable and human readable JSON formatted metadata can also be used. The metadata in .sidecar files is ancillary, which means that it can override the file’s embedded metadata without overwriting it. Blackmagic RAW also supports frame based metadata so you can access values, such as focus distance, that often change on a frame by frame basis.

Blackmagic RAW Player

Review Blackmagic RAW clips with consistent colour between software

Traditional RAW formats often display content inconsistently when viewed through different media players. Because the SDK manages all colour, colour transformations and also contains information about the characteristics of the camera’s sensor, the Blackmagic RAW Player can reliably display all of the dynamic range and deep colour of .braw clips. In fact, any software that utilizes the Blackmagic RAW SDK can ensure accurate and reliable interpretation of colour and tonal values rendered to the viewer. Most importantly, playback will be silky smooth, even on slower systems that typically struggle with other high bitrate RAW formats.
