Suggest: change extension .BRAW to .BMD

PostSun Sep 16, 2018 5:11 pm

For my opinion BRAW sounds and typography looks a little bit ugly. I also can't get why force world "raw" in file extension?
So my suggest to BM team - change it to .BMD It is simple and nice looking. It's like .DNG but better.

After 2+ years of development....probably not going to happen.

Just call it “B-Raw” instead of “bra”.

We’re no longer in a 8.3 world of file naming conventions (or are we?) such as clipname.bra so I think that’s not necessary. clipname.braw at least is clearly something about raw.

Yes, BMR would be the simplest but I think BMD wants the word raw in the name.

I can't believe this is a thing that people are concerned about. Seriously, are you guys hearing yourselves?
