Perhaps you are already using TimeSlater.com - our other useful app - the time-sync production slate that works on any smartphone, laptop, or tablet. Now let us introduce you to the raw video converter, RAW 4 PRO.
RAW 4 PRO quickly converts your raw sequence into real-time playable and editable video, with audio automatically merged. Video choices: DNxHD (similar to ProRes), or CineformRAW. Both video codecs work on either Mac or Windows.
RAW 4 PRO program lets you offload and convert your raw frame sequences into video, for fast playback and edit… with audio!
- Blackmagic Cinema Camera’s raw folders (2.5K Cinema DNG) and BMPCC (Blackmagic Pocket Camera) Compressed DNG folders. RAW 4 PRO enables Cineform to process BMPCC’s compressed DNG footage!
- Sony FS700 RAW footage recorded by ConvergentDesign Odyssey 7Q (both regular and high frame rate for slo-mo)
- Canon 5D raw video converted to DNG
- Digital Bolex
- Timelapses in DNG frames
- and more!
Say, you shot raw DNG footage with your camera – Blackmagic Cinema 2.5K or Pocket cam, Digital Bolex, Ikonoskop, etc. Or perhaps you made a beautiful timelapse in raw format. How do you even preview the sequences, let alone edit them in real time?
RAW 4 PRO to the rescue! It quickly converts your raw sequence into real-time playable and editable video, with audio automatically merged – at a fraction of the original file size!
Saves you time, aggravation, and disk space on your editing system.
RAW 4 PRO also allows you to dial in your options, such as automatic merge with audio file, framerate custom or match source clip, etc.
RAW 4 PRO organizes your original data into two folders: _raw and _works. RAW contains your precious DNG footage. WORKS folder contains your video previews that can be used for quick edit in your favorite NLE. You can then “online’ them back to DNGs either in Resolve or in AfterEffects, to color correct and export final render of the ultimate quality
