Greetings Folks,

Shot a short on BM Production Cam 4K raw. Gorgeous images. Editing natively in Premiere on a Mac can. A little slow now and then but no real problems.

(Really, it's quite an incredible combo for indie film. Love the camera, simplicity, quality, etc.)

When I go to "Source Settings" it gives me some basic RAW controls, and usually doesn't crash.

When I import various clips into AE for some compositing and go to Interpret Footage > More Options, it attempts to open up adobe's Camera Raw 9.1 and usually crashes. When it doesn't crash, it often doesn't update the footage when I change the RAW settings.

Any suggestions?

In AE I'm working in 32bit and it handles the footage just fine. My plan is to render my vfx out as ProRes4444 4k trillions and then import back in to Premiere. (In my tests, it does make things more contrasty... I don't know if I'm losing any color depth.) Then I'm planning on handing the whole Premiere timeline over to my colorist to do color in SpeedGrade.

Is that the right workflow?

Thanks so much!

-Tom

Okay, just solved something and a new mystery appeared.

As an experiment, I copy-pasted right from Premiere into AE and it imported the BM footage not as image sequences but as RAW video clips. The RAW dialogue comes up fine now with no crashes.

So as a follow-up question, how do I import the BM CINEMA DNG files into AE as a video clip without copy-pasting from Premiere? For the life of me I can't make AE do it!

We're in the process of fixing some bugs in the After Effects Camera Raw importer, which is used for these files. We expect to have the fixes available in a bug-fix update within two weeks.

I appreciate Adobe working to keep the improvements/features coming.

(And I just re-tested the copy-paste function from Premiere to AE and it actually doesn't quite work. It pops in to AE with the correct length, but only imports the first frame of the DNG sequence.)

Any tight ETA on the raw bug fixes? Now AE is doing crazy things with the raw settings for Cinema DNG image sequences and not letting them be reset and crashing like crazy. Is there a back door way to reset the raw settings? Some kind of preference file I can delete?

Thanks! Deadlines looming... :)

The After Effects CC 2015 (13.5.1) bug-fix update is available, which should fix this: http://adobe.ly/1Il5JYe

Worked like a charm. These ongoing tweaks and fixes are one more reason why Adobe rocks. Thanks!
