Will ACR support the different RAW formats of digital cinema cameras like REDCODE or ARRIRAW?

Jul 7, 2012 10:59 AM

Will ACR support the various formats produced by digital cinema cameras like REDCODE, ARRIRAW and the other ones?

Support for Cineform RAW would be also welcome of course.

 

The RAW converters supplied by the manufacturers are no comparison IMHO to what ACR offers in terms of sheer image quality, tonal control (especially highlight recovery and rolloff) simple usability and lack of stuff like lens correction just to mention the most important things.

Coming from a photo background I would love to be able to process everything in ACR as a first light correction. :-)

 

I don't know if this is just a question of implementing it, maybe there are legal reasons aswell why REDCODE for example isn't supported?

    I cannot speak for Adobe because I don't work for them, don't know any of them, and have no idea of what their business plan is. I'm just a user. But I suspect that those formats will not be supported because Lightroom and ACR are both technologies that have been designed for still image work. I suspect you would have to look at Adobe Premiere or other products to find support for those formats.

    Frankly this is beyond the current scope of the product.

    This ranks among the most bizarre threads ever started on the Adobe forums.

     

    We need a rolling-eyes emoticon.

    Knowing that there is a cinemaDNG proposition, it would make sense, but as a dedicated piece of software, not in ACR.

    IT has been shown that, in Photoshop CC, one can now use ACR on video layers converted to a Smart Object. You could also ask in a video forum about Arri or Red importing in Prelude...
