Issues Sharing Blackmagic Footage

PostWed Dec 08, 2021 8:00 pm

I am trying to share Blackmagic footage with my group for a student project. I don't have DaVinci Resolve... not sure if that's what the issue is. However, when I try to send even just one video file it takes hours and I am wondering if there is a faster, more efficient way to share the files?

Record in ProRes or convert. BRAW has very efficient compression, but it's still large.
If you want to only see BRAW, there's a player which comes with the free version of Resolve.
Don't approach Resolve with your expectations from other NLEs! They are all different.

If your footage is in BRAW or Prores and size is the limiting factor for sharing, and if post processing is inconsequential, then I suggest downloading the free version of DaVinci Resolve and encoding the BRAW file to something like H.264 file with a low bit rate. Those files will be small enough to share via Dropbox or Google drive. You can upload it to YouTube as well and share it there.
