Some time ago @NodeMonkey requested Blackmagic RAW support in Natron on our Facebook group. Being interested in the format and their pocket cameras I decided to make a BRAW Reader for Natron on my vacation, but it’s been a while since that (a month?), and I totally forgot about everything
So here we go, this is the initial beta for the plugin. I will only provide binaries for Windows at the moment, Linux/macOS users will need to build from source (see the openfx-arena repository for source) at the moment.
Hey, hold on! What is Blackmagic RAW you say? It’s an high performance, professional RAW video/image codec that is open (standard, not source), cross platform and free. For more information go to the official website.
The plugin is licensed under (L)GPL2+, but require libraries from the Blackmagic RAW SDK during runtime (they are not linked).
Installation (for Windows)
Adding the plugin to an existing Natron 2.3.15 installation.
Download BlackmagicRAW.ofx.bundle.zip (229.1 KB) and extract to your OFX folder.
Note that this option is not preferred since the plugin will not be properly integrated in Natron.
Download and extract Natron 2.3.16 Beta1. Then apply the following update:
Natron-BRAW-2.3.16-beta1-Windows-64.7z (4.9 MB). This archive includes Natron.exe, NatronRenderer.exe and BlackmagicRAW.ofx.bundle.
Overwrite the exe files and copy/move BlackmagicRAW.ofx.bundle to Plugins/OFX/Natron.
I will do proper releases at a later date…
You will need to have the Blackmagic RAW 1.8 SDK installed prior to using this plugin. Download it from Blackmagic.
