Wanna test ProRes RAW?

Are you exited about the new ProRes RAW from Apple and Atomos?

I am! I might start shooting more RAW now. I edit in FCPX and the tedious workflow with previous RAW has kept me away.

So what is ProRes RAW?

Apple says…

In 2007, Apple introduced the Apple ProRes codec family, providing an unparalleled combination of real-time, multistream editing performance, impressive image-quality preservation, and reduced storage rates for high-bit-depth 4:2:2 and 4:4:4:4 video.

Apple ProRes RAW is based on the same principles and underlying technology as existing ProRes codecs, but is applied to a camera sensor’s pristine raw image data rather than conventional image pixels. ProRes RAW brings to raw video the same great performance, quality, and ease of use that ProRes has brought to conventional video, in a format ideal for high-dynamic-range (HDR) content creation in Final Cut Pro X.

Atomos says…

ProRes RAW combines the flexibility of RAW video with the incredible performance of ProRes. Import, edit and grade pristine video with RAW data straight from your camera sensor without slowing down your edit. These RAW files provide maximum flexibility for adjusting the look of your video, while extending brightness & shadow detail. The ideal combination for HDR workflows.

I set out to shoot something at NAB 2018 and make it available for download for you to play with. It’s not scientific, it’s not Oscar material in any way, but it’s ProRes RAW and you can get it here. The previews here are graded and I have used an Osiris M31 LUT.
