Thread: blackmagic raw reader for lw2015 and above *experimental*

    blackmagic raw reader for lw2015 and above *experimental*

    simple blackmagic raw reader for Lightwave 2015 and above

    Installation
    - Put the BlackmagicRawAPI.dll into your lightwave bin foler
    - Put the tibe3_brawReader_64.p into your plugin folder and add it in LW
    - Load a .braw file, you need to switch the extension to *:* if you want to display it in the file requester you have to add *.braw to the "FileType Images" extensions in the LWconfig file

    Remarks
    - Since I don't have a braw capable camera at hand (and currently can't justify to buy one) I had to rely on the test files provided by blackmagic. There might be some memory leaks, but I could not detect one in the short period of time I've tested it.
    - This is a proof of concept. I won't develop it further until I need it, or people are willing to support its development.

    Use it at your own risk.

    Yeah, currently I'm also working on a cinemaDNG plugin, wich would be more helpfull for myself, but
    unlike braw its
    a) its a memory hog, b) too slow and c) it collides with native tiff support.....

    dng reader using libraw, tested it with my mini 4k. Not very useable

    Thinking further, I might release the source of it after some cleanup so others might
    add and tweak it for other raw formats.

    Thanks a lot, but currently I don't not recommended it . Needs some updates to be usuable again and most of it can be done via fbx / alembic
    Reminds me to update the pages.

    Woah, did not expect this. If you need more BRAW to test, give me a private message.

    Thanks was an interesting project programming wise (getting and syncing callbacks from a dll into the plugin)...done in a very short amount of time so
    the might be defintive some problems with it. If you encounter problems, don't hesitate to pm me a link to the footage.

    Updated the plugin to work with the latest braw 1.4 sdk to support 6k video, not much changed otherwise. Link the same.
