Viewing or offloading V-RAW data is handled by the Codex solution. Since data recorded on V-RAW 2.0 Recorder is uncompressed data out of a 4K sensor, V-RAW data can be captured as a clip file using Codex Capture Drive® 2.0 and needs to be de-bayered to preview. Third-party software supporting Codex or V-RAW de-bayering, previewing, or transcoding to intermediate files for dailies or offline editing is also available.

CODEX Production Suite



V-RAW files (.vrw) created in the off-loading process can be directly loaded and used for grading/mastering in a V-RAW-compatible environment. V-RAW files (.vrw) can be handled even a post environment not compatible with V-RAW by transcoding files to DPX. V-RAW recording is a solution for creators who are eager to maximize flexibility in creation and make the most of the expressiveness of the VariCam 35’s sensor.
