    I’ve been working in resolve as a work around with a project that has a lot of Braw content. I would be much happier working in X with support for Braw as described above. Resolve is great for Grading, ok as an edit platform ( there are pluses and minuses) . Maybe I am not a real editor, whatever, I think X suits me far better for editing. Resolve Cut page which is supposed to sorta kinda be like X doesn’t even allow. J-L cuts?

    While it’s nice to have options, you have been able to bring BRAW into FCP (with transcoding) for a while now.

    I think many of us are aware of that Oliver. That locks you into your raw settings beforehand, otherwise, you need to go back and convert again to make changes and it requires you to create more files eating up drive capacity. I think working with BRAW directly has many advantages and users have been asking for it for years and continue despite conversion options whether with plugin transcoder or going through Resolve. Having a plugin with direct BRAW support is a significant workflow improvement.

    I agree that native would be nice. However, we haven’t seen Hocking’s solution in the wild yet. So I’m not sure this doesn’t require transcoding as well. Or am I wrong on that?

    He’s been quite clear in his responses on Facebook. No Transcoding. This is plugin support (much like Premiere Pro plugin it seems).

    Seems to be working on both Silicon and Intel Monterey and Ventura and getting ready to Mac App Store Test Flight beta.

    Chris Hocking is a developer of Command Post for FCP as well.

    Thought you’d find this thread on Twitter interesting.

    It seems people at Apple and BMD have been helpful to him.

    GO !GO ! GO ! I don’t code, but I could send some coffee if that helps. I’m creeping into resolve because of a project with tons of Braw . Both the director and I would rather be in X. Nothing against resolve other than any app with a 4000 page pdf for a manual needs to slow its roll a fair amount. Resolve is a fine editor, I prefer X, many times over. Resolve has too damn many mouse clicks.
