It seems that after Final Cut Pro X, Avid Media Composer and Edius, ProRes RAW will be officially supported by Premiere Pro CC as well.
The news has been confirmed at IBC 2019 earlier today, thus turning into a big announcement for video editors and content creators who initially have needed to switch between different NLEs to be able to work with the format.
Interestingly enough, Adobe will be working on the integration of ProRes RAW into Premiere Pro CC as a native format instead of using an additional plugin like the Blackmagic RAW implementation that was announced earlier today. Unfortunately, it is still unclear when Adobe will be releasing the actual update, neither is known whether the format will be supported on both Mac and Windows.
One thing is for sure, though, with FCPX ProRes RAW support, and with Avid and Adobe now adopting it, it’s just a matter of time before Apple’s latest codec becomes a widely adopted industry standard. Ever since its worldwide unveiling a year and a half ago, the format has been one of the most discussed topics in the post-production world and with the recent announcements, it seems that the rigorous debates are about to spur again.
