It makes sense that Black Magic to create their own format if Cinema DNG has limitations. Why would Arri want to use BRaw when they've had lots of success with ArriRaw , ProRes and their own color sci

You shouldn't give your camera originals to your client. The first thing to do is to make backups of your original media. This will vary depending on your budget and needs. You could look into a tape

Any metadata substitute for timecode?

Since the P2 format is tapeless, I am guessing it doesn't use timecode, at least not in the way we are used to. Is there a way to embed metadata into the footage being captured I would love to be abl
