Apple releases beta that supports ProRes RAW for Windows applications.
As filmmakers RAW formats provide the most latitude when color grading. When Apple announced ProRes RAW, it joined a crop of RAW formats including those from ARRI, RED, and Sony.
Today, Apple has released a beta version of ProRes RAW for Windows that enables playback of ProRes RAW and ProRes RAW HQ video files for certain Windows systems applications. The supported software includes:
- Adobe After Effects
- Adobe Media Encoder
- Adobe Premiere
- Adobe Premiere Rush
For now, the beta is compatible with Windows 10 64-bit systems only. While it's only in beta, this is good news for filmmakers if it makes it out of testing and expands to other applications including DaVinici Resolve and Vegas. To join the beta, download the file via Apple's Support page.
