Raw from which camera ?

RAW from one camera isn't always the same as RAW from another camera.

Don't know what cam you're using, BUT assuming you are shooting .RAW files (from Magic Lantern), ML's website has a raw to dng converter for free. Just drop your .RAW file on the .exe and it extracts all of the frames for AE to use. Here you can download the raw2dng converter. Hope this was helpful.

Red Camera Raw: using the redcinex software, export prores for editing, finish your editing and export XML, import the xml to redcinex and let him to sync with your original media not the prores so you can do your final color grading directly on the raw.

Magic Lantern: use Raw2DNG for exporting your raw to DNG file, import your DNG in Davinci Resolve for either color grading or exporting prores for editing. after editing import XML from your editing software and import it to Davinic, you tell Davinci to sync your xml with your original DNG files...

for any other camera you just search on google there should be always absolutely a free software for converting the raw...

With our BMCC or any other raw file or sequence, you can use Resolve obviously, or Speedgrade. Or just open the sequences directly into AE, which processes it through ACR, which is ideal for shorter effects shots. No round tripping or converting anything except the final output. Refresh is a little slower than normal in AE, since you're working with the original files and you only get to see the first frame atm for correction, so hopefully Adobe will get on the ball soon and let ACR scrub.
