Adobe dropping Raw DNG support?

Passing this along to anyone interested in shooting with the BlackMagic Cinema Camera's raw 12-bit workflow (and many other "future" cameras). Disturbing, from the company thought to listen more than others...
The short version is that Adobe never integrated CinemaDNG support into Premiere to begin with. Adobe offered an experimental import plugin on Adobe Labs, but performance wasn't really good enough for real-world use and it was never part of the official release.
Even without this plugin, you can still import CinemaDNG into Ae and Ps and transcode to movies or supported image sequences for use with Premiere.
I absolutely agree that anyone who wants native CinemaDNG import in Premiere should file a feature request -- and I imagine the BMCC and others have this on everyone's radar.

Thank you sir,
Always enlightened by your posts. It seemed too illogical for Adobe, they've worked so hard the past years on platform compatibility. Hopefully they'll get this realtime issue solved, I'm sure they're aware of the impending need by now...
