Apple starts testing ProRes RAW format in Windows applications

We already talked here about the RAW ProRes, a new video format created by Apple itself that already has broad support among macOS software – Final Cut Pro X led the pack, of course, and almost all other professional video editors and processors in the Apple world followed the path, including those from Adobe Creative Cloud, those from Avid, Autodesk and Blackmagic (the full list can be found here).

There was only one problem: until now, support for the format was basically limited to macOS. Now, finally, this is about to change – Apple has started testing support in apps for Windows.

In a new support document, the company released the first beta version of Apple ProRes RAW for Windows, a software that allows playback of files in this format on some PC software. More specifically, in this initial phase, only four applications from Adobe are supported: Premiere Pro, Premiere Rush, After Effects and Media Encoder.

Video editors and industry enthusiasts can now download the software and start testing their videos in ProRes RAW format in the Windows world – remembering, of course, that the whole thing is still in beta, so it shouldn’t be used as your own. main work tool.

Over time, of course, other applications will be added to the support and possible failures will be fixed; then yes, owners of workstations running Windows will be able to work with the ProRes RAW format on their machines. It’s a start, isn’t it?
