The latest version of Blackmagic RAW has been unveiled—Blackmagic Design’s proprietary codec designed to produce higher quality video than the standard video formats. Version 2.1 brings native support for Apple computers with the M1 chip, better performance, and improved compatibility. In March, the company announced its video editing software DaVinci Resolve with native support for M1, but the Blackmagic RAW codec wasn’t yet updated—until now.
Version 2.1 also improves the performance and reliability of the Blackmagic RAW plugin for Adobe Premiere Pro, adds support for recording via the Blackmagic Video Assist monitor/recorder with Nikon and Panasonic cameras (Z6 II/Z7 II, S1H, S1 and S5), and improves CPU decoding for clips from Blackmagic’s URSA Mini Pro 12K cinema camera.
Head to Blackmagic Design’s support page to download, for free, the latest version of Blackmagic RAW. It’s available for macOS, Windows and Linux.
