    [Joe Marler] “I don’t know his list of cameras, but but I see on Adorama they have “ProRes RAW Atomos/camera kits” available with the Canon C300 II, Panasonic EVA1 and Sony FS5. Also supported are the Canon C500, Varicam LT, Sony FS7 and FS700. ProRes RAW is available on the DJI Inspire 2 with X7 camera, the Nikon Z6/Z6 (November), and will be available early next year on the Panasonic S1H.”

    Given that Blackmagic has announced support for Canon’s C300 Mark II and Panasonic’s EVA-1 with their Video Assist, I think it is likely that they will add the other Canon and Panasonic cameras that have ProResRaw support (C500, Varicam LT and S1H). Likely leaving Blackmagic RAW with many more devices in the field supporting it. Until we start to see adoption of one or the other in (other companies’) cameras, it will be impossible to pick a winner.

    [Bill Davis] “BRaw is BlackMagic Design’s intellectual property.
    They control who can use it. Period.

    Absolutely true, and they have made it clear that they will license it on a royalty free basis.

    Exactly like ProRes RAW is Apples intellectual property.

    Apple is much less clear about what their licensing terms are for ProRes, however, Blackmagic have licensed it before (both for their cameras and for Resolve on Windows) and I see no reason why they would not want to include it in Resolve.

    While there’s an open source SDK and Grant Petty is on record as saying any other company can implement BRaw without royalty, I’m not sure that’s the same as Apple enabling BRaw in FCP X without BlackMagic reciprocating and enabling, say, ProRes RAW on BlackMagic cameras.

    While I have no information, it seems way more likely that Apple has chosen not to license ProRes RAW to Blackmagic, than the flip side (i.e. they have offered it to Blackmagic and Blackmagic said they did not want it).

    Heck, why not BRAW recording on iPhones and ProRes RAW pipelines in Resolve?

    That would be awesome! However, given that we do not have ProRes RAW on iOS, I would be surprised to ever see Blackmagic RAW there. ☺ On the other hand, I would not be at all surprised to see ProRes RAW in Resolve, if Apple decides to allow it.

    If the standalone version is (and is going to be), exactly the same as the bundled version, why bother to keep it? Why would anyone pay $300 to get the same thing as they get for $300 in Resolve with all the extra functionality Resolve offers?

    I would guess that this version was, as you suggested, designed to align the code base between the standalone version and the bundled version and then allow them to add back the previous Fusion functionality and UI but in a way that makes maintaining the separate products easier.

    It cost money and development effort to build this new version, and I cannot see why they would bother if all they were doing is creating a less functional product (Stand alone fusion) with exactly the same limits as a more functional product (Resolve) for the same price.

    I think it is important to make clear to Blackmagic, what concerns people have about the new direction and see if they respond.

    There is a solution in beta testing right now, but it may not work with your machine as it may require thunderbolt 3. Go to and look at the options there.

    [Nick Natteau] “I initially ended up creating hundreds of keywords which was insane. I then realized that rather than create so many keywords, the best strategy was to have as few keywords as possible and instead use the Notes Field to define what those keyworded ranges contain. “

    I have been helping a friend working on a long form documentary and that was how we decided to arrange things as well. It seems to work really well for him. He also uses Producer’s Best Friend from Intelligent Assistance to pull some of the data out of the project in order to search using Numbers. We are waiting on Kopto for a new version of Shot Notes X that can create multiple favorites in a single clip with the appropriate notes fields.

    Some questions to help you with your organization:

    Were each of the interviews shot with one, two or more cameras?

    Did you have a separate audio recorder?

    Are you creating transcripts to help with the editing or for use after? If for use while editing, are you cutting the interviews first to cut down on cost or for some other ready?

    [Shane Ross] “Me too”

    Admit it, the Transylvania Trophy nomination is what pushed it over the edge for you! 😀

    [Oliver Peters] “You are correct and I stand corrected.”

    I went through the rest of the list, and there are quite a few that won real awards including:

    Loreak (Flowers was the English title)
    El Hombre de las Mil Caras (The Man of a Thousand Faces was the English title)
    Well Wishes
    600 Miles (won several other awards, but was also nominated for the Transylvania International Film Festival’s Transylvania Trophy! ☺ )

    There were also others that were released by major studios and were nominated for Academy Awards, but did not win.

    [andy patterson] “The Dock functions somewhat like the Taskbar. Apple did not want to copy Windows 100% like Suse Linux, Corel Linux and all the other Linus distribution that followed from Windows 95. Many of the Linux distribution today still use the Windows 95 paradigm. Windows 7 is not a new paradigm from Windows 95 nor was OS X. Windows 7 is slightly more refined than Windows 95 but not a whole new paradigm shift.

    Andy, you might want to learn some history. The Dock comes from NeXTSTEP, first shown public on 12 October, 1988 at Davies Symphony Hall. Microsoft took many other interface elements from NeXTSTEP, just as they took many earlier interface elements from earlier versions of MacOS. MacOS X is a blend of NeXTSTEP, OpenSTEP, and MacOS Classic. The first modern touch UI was the one developed for iOS.
