  • Recommended System Requirements
    CinemaDNG workflow can be resource intensive, so we recommend a minimum set of system requirements for your computer that will ensure best performance while editing, transcoding, and rendering your footage.
  • Which programs will open Cinema DNG files
    Not all NLE and color correction software can natively accept raw CinemaDNG files. Avid, Final Cut Pro, and certain color suite users will need to transcode their raw files to a format like Apple Prores4444 for editing and color correction.
