The ProRes RAW Advantage

Creators are granted complete creative control of their video images in post-production as ProRes RAW combines the flexibility of RAW video with the real-time performance of ProRes. The format gives filmmakers incredible latitude when adjusting the look of their images and extending brightness and shadow detail — making ProRes RAW ideal for HDR workflows.



In addition to providing the groundbreaking combination of flexibility and performance, ProRes RAW files are smaller than other RAW files. This simplifies and accelerates file transfer, media management, and archiving. ProRes RAW is fully supported in Apple Final Cut Pro X along with a collection of other apps including Assimilate SCRATCH, Colorfront, FilmLight Baselight, and Grass Valley Edius. Adobe and AVID have announced that Premiere Pro and Media Composer will support ProRes RAW in 2020.

The Ninja V allows users to accurately monitor the Z6 RAW signal on its daylight-viewable 5" HDR screen, previewing it for HDR in a choice of HLG and PQ (HDR10) formats. It offers touchscreen access to tools like waveforms, magnify or enlarge
