This feature would be really nice!

Hey, thanks for the program but, How to deactivate DNGs for keep only prores 4444?

currently not possible. The raw2dng in is only able to output files to folder. We could delete it afterwards though.. IMO the raw2dng should be abgle to be piped - so we can 1. don't save them to disk, only keep them in memory and 2. we could extract frame ranges. This needs to be done by someone familiar with C and raw2dng.

Raw Video Postprocessing / Re: color problem
« on: July 23, 2013, 03:55:29 PM »
this raw2dng gives me directly Prores4444, Just Drag and Drop. cool.

But now i checked the prores files and they are shit.

The color within a shot keeps changing. Not really from frame to frame,
but with in 3 or 4 frames, skin tones suddenly green or blue.

But when i do Photoshop then export to tiff then quicktime pro to sequence,
everything fine.

Now I need a new converter from raw to dng,
cause raw2dng does the prores transfer automatically and that keeps ages.

known issue.: currently the raw converter calculates WB for each frame, will be resolved by option to keep WB same for all

Is this still a problem with raw2dng?

For some reason, the proresHQ 4444 file put out by raw2dng is unrecognized by my system - OSX 10.8.4

Anybody has any idea why? Here's the resultant text:

known issue, delete the last .dng in the folder(s). will be resolved

QT x
CS6 all the newest stuff
and I have Apple Compressor installed for the ProRes components.

Here's the weird thing.  The only file that worked (aka was recognized by quicktime) was one that I hit the cancel button part way thru the conversion.

let's see, 1. can you open the last .dng in those folder without error?
if , this is a known issue and will be resolved. you can hack it to work by deleting this .dng while it is converting to video.

otherwise, After the conversion, click the arrow left near Details, can you copy to the content to or here?

the prores4444 files are created but can't be ready by Premiere or Quicktime,  anyone else having this issue?  Also I can't find out how to turn off the creation of the prores files to save space since they don't work.

What os, qt and premiere version?

sorry, should be: yuv444p10le

that's the "highest" i got to work.

What's the command line to convert to ProRes? I'd like first to work on dng's in Lightroom then export tif's to ProRes

ffmpeg -vcodec tiff -i &6d.tiff -r FPS -vcodec prores_kostya -profile:v 3 -vendor ap10 -pix_fmt  yuv444p10le -y -r FPS

cd to your folder containing tiff.
replace both FPS with your actual fps!

Very interesting! But how to keep this dcraw to wb ratio and bring it to a prores 4444 video?What kind of correlation there's between dcraw and final wb kelvin number in final prores 4444 video? Are you trying to say that we don't need this information anymore?! Neither are we enabled to obtain this information in a different way?

sorry ;-) but i don't understand most of this...

the dng are raw bayer data, like image cr2 raw, has no wb applied. dcraw converts this raw image to a color image and there you set the wb (by multiplying the rgb (rgbg)). out of this images the video, in this case prores is made. I don't know of any (non-propiertary) video format that works with raw data. now there's the cinemaDNG format (not the same as DNG) that fills this gap, raw image data for video use.


The dng files dont work with resolve 9.1.4


use rawmagic for now.

Isn't the raw data 442? If so, wouldn't Pro Res 444 be a waste of space?

the raw is even more than 444...

Regarding the whitebalance settings in raw to dng. Are the presets consistent kelvin-numbers? I understand auto is doing some kind of frame by frame stuff but maybe not the other presets? Would be golden with some kind of tumbnail before applying the whitebalance to the ProRes but it,s not necessary.
Awesome app guys!

what we use currently, dcraw, has no kelvin, unfortunately, but rgb multipliers. Auto setting currently does frame by frame - like to change that to take the wb setting from first (or whatever) frame and then apply this to all frames.

My version of has full preview ;-) don't know if scrax is going to implement it... maybe i release my version separate...

Previous workflow used conversion from DNGs to TIFFs in Photoshop and user was able to just select all frames in sequence WITHOUT doing any corrections. Can you add this "WITHOUT CORRECTION" feature to raw2dng to proceed prores 4444 video files? Is it clear to you?

not clear to me. There is no raw bayer to rgb or whatever conversion without some sort of "correction". After all you convert a black and white image to colors... You want uniWB? doubt it. You want fixed WB, what value then? You want adobe conversion? then use adobe...

You are right. The last DNG is messed up. It happened to all the shots I have checked. I'd be glad to rerun one. You suggest to remove the last frame but how can I remove the last frame of the RAW file ??? The problem happens when I want the Prores 4444 from the Raw file. Thanks for helping.

prores is made from .dng anyway, so you can delete it after all the dng's are copied over and while the prores is made...

Hi, Used 0.13. Computer says it can't open the prores sequence. It's not a video.
The end of the verbose inside the app:

"frame=  409 fps=1.7 q=0.0 size=  385499kB time=00:00:17.05 bitrate=185125.8kbits/s

If that can help you.

has this video 409 or 410 frames? if so try to delete the last frame and re-run. I got this error on a video, where the last .dng file is messed up.

otherwise try to open the .dng around frame 409 (408, 410) - are they ok?

Ok thanks for the info, in vlc 444 10 bits !

It exist a 14bits mov codecs ?

Best regards

I haven't found one yet. Currently i'm aiming at 12bit, but even this seems difficult... i've read somewhere that the setting we are using currently is 4444 12 bit, but that seem be wrong, since vlc says 10 bit...

If you want to use 14bit, use the cinemaDng converter and use those image sequences.

i personally kind of see no point in having a video that is equal or bigger in size than this cinemaDng would be..

i'm as well open for suggestions of other codecs - prores is really nice for editing, but it is soft.

so yeah any thoughts on auto joining the 5d2 4GB files?
Thanks. James

for now you can join them manually:

open terminal then type:
cd /Volumes/bashi/Pictures/Raw (or wherever your RAW files are, you can just drag and drop the folder to terminal)
hit Enter
cat NAME.RAW NAME.R00 NAME.R01 > merged.RAW  (input as many .R00, .R01 you have)
hit Enter

then you have a .RAW that contains all raws - drop this merged.RAW to


With 0.13 i activate in the options ProResHQ 4444, but the generated .mov is in ProRes 422 HQ (With cmd + i or in FCPX)

What i do wrong ?

Best regards

You do nothing wrong. the movie is 4444, but it gets the wrong codec flag (its apch, shoult be ap4h) . this is an issue from ffmpeg. If you open the movie in vlc, you can see in info (cmd+i) decoded Format Planar 4:4:4 YUV. As well you can see the difference from 422 to 444 in some places, like very hard contrast, for example the canyon scene from lukas neumann. Not sure if this causes any problems - haven't found one.

Hm, nice idea, but the ProRes files I get are quite unusable. Correctly exposed RAW files turn into 3 stops underexposed .mov's that don't seem to have the color information needed to get them back up, results in extreme overall noise.

Also I'm not sure the automatic WB is needed since it should have been set correctly in camera, right? Only Green/Magenta Shift should be set to 0.


i think the camera wb doesn't get saved - at least the dng don't have it saved in them...

@all and scrax
It looks like the White Balance Automatic does apply on every image separately... This means it can change during the shot - not good.

@scrax: we might need to find a way do get the rgb multiplier from the first image (or any), by -v verbose and read/save the shell output value and set it as variable it then uses for all further conversion.

@all again
further the White Balance Presets (multipliers) are taken from 5D III. Not sure how much difference there is to other camera models.

I'm as well not entirely sure those WB Presets are really correct - so please test them and report back here.

Is it possible to have this JUST convert to ProRes?  Any chance we could select options for the ProRes output?  It'd be great to get a ProRes 422 HQ option.

Just convert to prores - i've tried this several ways with no luck. looks like the raw2dng is not able to be piped in a way we can use the output without it being written to disk... will do some more testing, cause this feature would be great!

EDIT: more options will come, most likely 422/4444, quality (Proxy, LQ, STD, HQ).

that's awesome thanks!!! its possible to batch convert multiple .RAW files with raw2dng? I went through a lot of time going one by one :P

just drag 'n drop all files on it, or folder containing them.

Hi Guys, what kind of Pro Res is the file created by RAW2DNG: 422, 4444, LT? Because in Quicktime information only said the creator´s name. Thanks!

currently it's 422 HQ, but 4444 is possible and will be enabled.

just converted some files with 0.12 to me its worked pretty good... i still prefer to proRes4444 with AE. It would be amazing if we could batch convert with raw2dng and have the option to create just DNG's or DNG's and proRes... anyway its killing it. thanks guys!

“-pix_fmt yuv444p10″ specifies that you want to use the ProRes 4444 codec specifically

we can do that. ;-)

so this would be prores 4444 12bit.
(until now i had some confusion with those pixel formats)

the option to make dng and/or video will come soon.


I just tried it again and now it seems to have converted the entire clip to a prores file. I'll try more and let you know if I discover anything.

it's bashi ;-) Good to hear, and please let us know of any issues.

@Doyle4: Thanks for the info.

Hello and thank you for the new version of raw2dng. Just wanted to report that when the app is generating the prores file it doesn't seem to be able to make a file greater than 645 frames. Any else experienced this ?

Thank You Again !!

thanks for report. not good ;-) will look into it.
