Cannot import BRAW files

PostSun Jun 30, 2019 12:05 pm

I am just getting started with my brand new BMPC 4k camera and resolve. First test was to shoot some material and import it to Resolve 15 software I loaded up from the software SD card that came with the camera.
Pro res files import fine, but BRAW do not. Drag and drop into the media pool does not work, but equally resolve doesn't even 'see' the files in their location on my HD.
In addition if I double click on a clip I shot through finder it Blackmagic RAW player launches but there is no clip visible or playable.
Any thoughts anyone?

I am having the same issues and cant see any of my rw clips.
I also uploaded Resolve with the provided SD card that came with my BMPCC4K.

Blackmagic, can you PLEASE provide an answer to help fix this?

With system detail i guess you potentially the file format you are recording is probably defined after the Resolve release you are using. If you download 15.3 from the Resolve support page you will likely see these files.

Anyone using BRAW files need to use Resolve 15.3.1.

People buying the PCC4K camera and using the Resolve software that comes on the SD card seem to run into this issue a lot. The Resolve software that comes with any of our products is generally not the current Resolve version, as we update it frequently. So anyone buying a BMD camera should not use the Resolve software than comes with the camera, they should download the current release version of Resolve from the BMD web site support area:

6K BRAW files require the use of Resolve 16.

Unfortunately I'm getting the issues with braw from the BMPCC 6K not being detected... but by Resolve 16. Do we have to update to 16.1? Presumably not. Any suggestions would be welcome please. The files play fine in camera but cant be imported or detected by Resolve or the Blackmagic RAW player.

What type of system hardware do you have? And specifically, what OS and CPU are you using?

A very belated thank you to Dwaine for solving this for me. You were right, all I needed was a resolve software update and it works like a dream. Cheers!

Same issue here. I just updated to the latest Resolve Studio and the latest Mac Os. Downloaded the 12k sample files from this website and Resolve does not see them.

Which latest? Only 16.3 beta can open 12k braw files, 16.2.6 can’t.

and if you use an old cMP - cant read the new braw 2,0 files,
because of missing the avx instruction in the old xeons :- (

I hope BMD will listen to us
cMP 5.1 2x3,46/96GB/2x2TB 860pro/4x4TB HGST/SSD7101A 4x2TB 970evoplus/HP1344/BMD4k/Radeon VII

You have old system, update it, bmd can’t add avx set to old cpus just as it can’t make Resolve run on incapable systems.

I updated to DaVinci Resolve Studio 16.2.7 and it doesn't recognize blackmagic raw file that I've downloaded from official website, blackmagic raw section.

I'm using Macbook pro from 2013 late / Catalina.

What should I do?

For 12K BRAW files, you need to use Resolve 16.3b3 or 17b1.

Re: resolve 16 doesn't doesn't even see the BRAW from 6kpro

PostThu Apr 15, 2021 3:35 am

Just got my 6k pro shot braw and when I open resolve 16 it doesn't even see the files, let alone import anything as it sees nothing in the directory.
In the windows file explorer win 10 it sees the files fine and paly it fine after raw player from resolve installed.

Anyone knows anything about this please share.

Thank you.

You'll need to use Resolve 17.
