BRaw is BlackMagic Design’s intellectual property.
They control who can use it. Period.
Exactly like ProRes RAW is Apples intellectual property.
In both cases, the way copyright law works, if you don’t defend your IP - you risk losing it.
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.

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

We all can hold out hope that this type of cum-by-yah cooperation will happen someday - but I suspect it will be a while.

Hope I’m wrong, tho,
