    Opinions on slimRAW?

    Is anyone using slimRAW for your cDNG files? Any advice or feedback?

    Using slimRaw for my files from the Sigma fp. Working like a dream, reducing my CinemaDNG-files a lot (38% of the original size)

      I have since bought it and I agree, it works great!

        slimRAW is an excellent program for optimizing cDNG files and the possibility of processing in Adobe Premiere Pro

          Have you found any issues using the highest lossy compression ratio? They recommend it for a proxy workflow, but I found the images were good even when you push exposures +2/-2.

            Just chiming in with another positive experience with SlimRaw. The ability to open them in Premiere is incredible! I feel like more people would get the fp if they knew they could use the CDNGs in Premiere through SlimRaw.

              I’m planning to purchase an fp. This seems like a great way to reduce the file size without losing quality. Will this help in DaVinci Resolve?

                Yep I've been using it on every import. My workflow is:

                1. Insert SSD into USB-C slot
                2. Open slimRAW
                3. Set import folder to SSD/CINEMA
                4. Set export folder to DESKTOP/CINEMA
                5. Press start

                  That sounds pretty straightforward. If you are recording with 12-bit CinemaDNG at 4K, approximately how long would it take for the slimRAW conversion for 30 minutes of video?

                  I’m very impressed with the image quality from this little camera. So filmic and organic in appearance.

                    Let me time it right now. I just filled up a Samsung T5 1TB with 56 minutes of test footage.

                      Great! That was my next question, how many minutes you can get per TB of SSD? Just under an hour at 12-bit 4K CinemaDNG?

                        Yeah it's something like 56 minutes.

                          So it takes about 1 hour to import 1TB on my MacBook Pro 2018 with the 2.6 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i7. I had to import at 3:1 lossy because I didn't have enough hard drive space to import at lossless with only a 512GB drive.

                              Thank you so much for posting that!

                              If you had a larger hard drive, would you have used the Lossless compression mode instead? What file size would that have been approximately? Is there much quality drop off using Lossy 3:1?
