Update your Adobe Camera Raw plugin.
BTW, trust me; while you can work with RAW images in AE, you want to avoid it since each frame needs to be de-bayered so it's going to be really slow. Better convert to multiple JPEG image sequences with different exposures if you want the full dynamic range.
Thanks for the reply, looking for the update as we speak.
I import the sequence as RAW files and then add panning/zoom/stabilization in the comp and then export as video. I'll look into first exporting them as jpegs and then importing them to adjust those parameters. You're right that it'll be faster to work with in after effects, however isn't it so that it's an extra step which takes up more time?
Just remembered, I downloaded the latest update to camera raw earlier this morning and it didn't fix the problem.
Any other ideas?
If you can put the RAW image sequence on a fast SSD and you don't have
to work a lot in AE with them, you might find it acceptable. For every
frame, AE has to read, apply your custom settings, de-bayer the
full-resolution image before it can be shown in your comp. In my
experience that is pretty slow...
I know, it can be slow but it doesn't bother me as I don't have watch the entire sequence for what I'm doing.
Still trying to find out how to ge the RAW files to work though..
You haven't mentioned the source of your RAW files, but I'm guessing it's
from a camera that was released after CS5.5 shipped, so you need to update
Adobe Camera Raw updates for Mac:
Adobe Camera Raw updates for Windows:
The source is a 600D/T3i canon DSLR.
After downloading another version of the camera raw update (I installed 7.1 this morning) it worked.
I downloaded this version as it mentioned my camera type (I was under the impression the latest version would automatically include previous models as well): Camera_Raw_6_4_1_updater.dmg.
Thanks for the help!!
