Cannot import or see 6K .braw files

I had previously downloaded the sample 4K .braw files and imported them without issue. I have the release version of Resolve Studio 16 installed and recently downloaded the newer 6K sample .braw files. None of the files will import to the media page via drag and drop or browsing directly to the folder. When browsing to the folder, they do not even show up as file names.

I have seen the posts about unchecking GPU decode and issues with certain AMD processors. Unchecking did not have any affect and I have Xeon Gold 6146 CPUs, 256 GB Ram and a Quadro P6000 video card on Windows 10.

The files playback in the 1.4 Windows player without issue. The older 4K files also seem to import into Resolve as expected.

Last, all of the new files seem to import without issue on my 2018 Macbook Pro. So what is it about Windows systems that is different?

I am attaching the Resolve and System.nfo files.

You don't have the 16.0 release version installed. You have 16b7 installed.

Dwaine, I have a question here. Codecwise, is 6K Braw different from 4K or 4.6 Braw?
In case of r3d we can use any resolution -- 4K, 4.5K, 5K, 6K, 8K.
Why is it that we need an upgrade when importing 6K Braw? Is this a problem with Resolve or with Braw codec?

BRAW is not my area of expertise. But basically, the BRAW version was updated to 1.4 to support the new 6K camera, and 6K BRAW files using that 1.4 format need an updated decoder to decode them. The release version of Resolve 16.0 has that support. The new 1.4 BRAW player (now available for all platforms) has that support.

I would assume, but have not yet confirmed, that if you install the Blackmagic Camera 6.5 update, which was released at the same time, onto a BMPCC 4K camera, that the 4K BRAW files produced may also need the 1.4 decoder support.

But any 4K BRAW files created before Camera 6.5, will still play in Resolve 15.3 and higher, and the BRAW 1.3 player for Mac.

Thanks Dwaine. So I would assume that the BRAW is improving very fast. :)

Cool.

But, shouldn't the main BRAW page be updated as well? ;)

Dwaine,

Thank you. That did the trick. I thought I had updated to the final release but I hadn't.
