  • BRAW Premiere import issue

    I captured approx 200 shots in BRAW (BMPCC4K) after learning about the new BM Premiere plugin. Happy to report it MOSTLY worked. 6 shots towards the end of the shoot fail to import because of a -generic importer error-. The shots display in the finder and open and play in BRAW Player. Has anyone had this experience? I thought is might have been a conflict with autokromas plugin (which I evaluated but did not pay for). I ran its uninstaller and then ran unstallers for the BRAW update, Premiere and Resolve hoping to clean up the mess. After a re-install of the CC app, Premiere, Resolve, and the BRAW update I get the same error. Weird… I cannot shoot in this format until this random lunacy is nailed down. I WAS able to transcode the shots in Resolve to PRORES master but that can’t be part of my flow.
    I am using the latest version of the CC apps and resolve 16

    there’s a free BRAW plugin for premiere from blackmagic that may work better.

    That is what I’m using. Not the Autokroma plug.

    Kindest regards,

    Sorry. This issue is with the BM free plugin just released. The Autokroma plug is a bit dodgy as well but your mileage may vary.

    Hey, man!

    I had the very same issue here with Premiere CC 2020 and the BRAW plugin just yesterday and I cleared all my Adobe Premiere Cache files, then restarted the software and it worked instantly.

    I’m pretty sure it was the Cache folder, because I’m importing more than 70 cards of material and this ‘generic error’ happened in some files of some of the cards, which I skipped when importing the others that didn’t have this issue. Then, I cleared ALL the Cache folder (with the own Premiere cleaner, which you can only do with no projects open at all), restarted Adobe Premiere, and every card that had the issue were imported normally.

    Hope it help!
