ARW Support

PostWed Apr 13, 2016 2:26 pm

I'd like to use Resolve to grade some stills but they are in Sony's ARW RAW format. Any plans to add native support for ARW in the future or is the best method to convert to DNG and go from there?

Thanks

Thanks,

Do you have a converter you would recommend?

I was able to convert ARW files from an ILCE-7SM2 using Photoshop CC 2015.

Depending on what camera generated the files, you may be able to use Photoshop or (some version of) Adobe Lightroom. It appears to be a moving target as the format changes. Some info here:

If you don't have Photoshop or Lightroom, or your camera isn't supported yet, you can try Sony's Image Data Converter software.

Finally, there are online converters you can find by searching, I haven't tried any of them so I don't know if they are any good/legit.

Depending of your preference of program, there is a version of Capture One limited to use with ARW for an attractive price.

Thanks for all the info, stills aren't something I usually deal with. I do like the one time purchase of Capture One over a subscription for Photoshop, which I don't have or need.

Adobe has a free DNG converter you could try. Link to 10.1:
