Does Hitfilm pro 2017 support RAW? and if not will it? And how many users here use RAW?I've used it a few times but must run it through Davinci Resolve first and then export it to .mov or .mp4 before i use in in Hitfilm pro 4
The Windows version of HitFilm Pro 2017 has native support for Cineform via the Cineform SDK so it might support 12 bit Cineform RAW but I don't know for sure because I haven't tried it yet nor have I seen anything from a staff member about Cineform RAW yet.
I'm hoping for raw support myself, but most raw formats are probably going to require quite a bit of effort. I'd guess that the most likely ones are CinemaDNG because it's a fairly open standard so doesn't require a lot of figuring out how to decode stuff on FXHome's part, but it's also a very inefficient format that requires huge amounts of disk bandwidth.
Next most likely I'd guess is KineRAW because I would expect an up and coming company that wants to break in to want to help FXHome get their format up and running in something other than Scratch; Scratch is an amazing color suite, but it's pricier and has a steeper learning curve.
Third up is probably RedCode, due to the fact that Red provides an SDK to decode it and I'm an optimist.
And because FXHome is promoting the new 8K support feature
