ARRIRAW QuickTime omponent
ARRIRAW is fully supported through QuickTime, which will preform all of the importing, playback, debayer, Exposure, ASA and color correction functions to the movie. All applications that use QuickTime can access all aspects of the ARRIRAW files. Applications including Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composer, Compressor, can import and play these files without any sort of conversion or preprocessing steps. For the ease of portability with other users, you can quickly and easily convert an ARRIRAW image sequence to any other QuickTime movie format.
ARRIRAW Time Code
Time code is loaded right into any QuickTime application that supports time code tracks. Reel names (time code track labels) can also be added for applications such as Final Cut Pro. During export from Compressor, time code from the ARRIRAW image sequences can be baked into your destination media.
Many hardware and software vendors offer the ability to embed Metadata information directly into the ARRIRAW frames. A feature of these components is to retrieve these bits of information and make them available to your tools or applications. Final Cut Studio support is provided by the ARRIRAW Toolkit. With this package, Final Cut Studio will be able to embed the Metadata from the ARRIRAW footage, and preserve it inside your project files.
ARRIRAW Spotlight Plugins
The Spotlight Plugins enable your system to see inside the ARRIRAW image header. The Finder can extract specific information from ARRIRAW files when it does a "Get Info." You can search for time code, frame rates, encoding information or even "shot notes" from the "project" field. Simple shell scripts can also take advantage of the spotlight services and sift through frames for specific data.
Need to change the aspect ratio of your footage? The ARRIRAW Toolkit has
the ability to unsqueeze your imagery using a number of popular aspect ratios, without modifying the original. Preset Ratios include 1.78, 2.0, 2.35 or you can choose your own aspect ratio by entering a custom value.
With Glue Tool’s Cineon/DPX Toolkit
ARRIRAW Toolkit in conjunction with Glue Tools' Cineon/DPX Toolkit allows users to export ARRIRAW footage to high quality dpx frames. The combination provides universal access of ARRIRAW footage to many industry-wide visual effects, editorial and color correction packages.
With the Cineon/DPX Toolkit, the process of embedding time code, adding slate notes, adjusting the frame rate and exporting DPX files is significantly easier. It's the ideal way for footage to be color corrected and then printed to film, exported to DCP or used for broadcast.
Exporting a New Movie from QuickTime Player
For the ease of portability with other users, you can quickly and easily convert an ARRIRAW image sequence to any other QuickTime Movie format. You can do this by opening a ARRIRAW sequence using QuickTime Player, and then selecting the "File->Export...". Select your codec, location and filename as you would with any other movie, and start the export. It is that easy.
Importing an ARRIRAW Sequence into Final Cut Pro
Final Cut Pro will treat ARRIRAW image sequences exactly the same way it treats other QuickTime Movies. To import an ".ari" sequence, select the "File->Import->Glue Tools ARRIRAW Import..." menu item, and locate and click on your movie. Your movie will now appear in the browser. If a Time Code track is enabled, it will be attached to the movie as well.
