    Has anyone been using the color finale BRAW transcoder extension for X? If so, how would you rate/recommend It? Its not an expensive plug in so cost is not an issue, I’m more interested in how functional it is.

    I’m also wondering about whether now that there is a plug in available, Apple’s next up date to X will include BRAW functionality. The gen 5 update for the BMD cameras has just landed and my BMPC 4 K looks even better than before, so use of raw in X is of even greater interest to me.

    I’ve reviewed it, done testing with it, and used it for a handful of clips on real projects. It works well and is in active development. So expect it to get even better in the months ahead. You can try it out as a trial (with watermark) if you want to see whether it fits your workflow. Naturally for FCP users, it’s either that or use Resolve to first transcode the files. Your comfort with Resolve, workflow, and quantity of material will likely affect your decision.

    I bought the plug in – It works & I really like the Gen 5 color science with the BMPC4k . I had one funky transcode on a short clip, which came out ok on second attempt. I was hoping for BRAW implementation in X, which cold maybe still happen but until such time the Colro Finale plug in will be a welcome addition.

    FYI – CFT was updated to 1.1 today with a number of new features, including scopes and BRAW metadata.

    I do. I like it because this extension lets me edit RAW straight away. It cost me only

    $59, but there is free trial, you can use it for 1 week.

    Yep. like the extension . The 1.1 upgrade has been released, however I do not see a way to download or get the update in any way shape or form.

    You update from the CFT app itself. You can launch it from Applications. Or it’s open after you use it in FCP. Close FCP and you’ll see the CFT icon on your top Mac menu bar. There’s a pulldown and one item is to check for updates. That should find a newer version and download/install the latest build.

    I’ve had a look through the manual and features. Can anyone tell me the advantage of using this plug-in over transcoding with Resolve (Lite or Studio)?

    Preference and staying within the FCP environment. Also not everyone is comfortable with Resolve.
