Problem importing ARRIRAW files

ARRIRAW is a RAW digital cinematography format, used in ARRI cameras.

ARRIRAW retains the camera's natural color response and great exposure latitude as uncompressed and unprocessed sensor data. With the introduction of the ALEXA XT series, ARRIRAW data can be recorded directly in the camera, without the need for an external recorder.

Problems importing ARRIRAW clips

First of all, verify that your computer is ready to work with ARRIRAW footage.
Depending on the workflow and edition software you are using, an ARRIRAW plug-in or component might be needed, or the clips won't open.

If your system of capable of importing some ARRIRAW clips, but can't open others, those clips are probably corrupted.
Our service is able to repair unplayable ARRIRAW footage, and restore original recording quality.

Legacy ARRIRAW

During first years, ARRI cameras were recording clips inside a folder, each frame was stored in an .ari file.
It contains a header and ARRIRAW data corresponding to the single frame.

ARRIRAW in MXF container

Nowadays, ARRI cameras record clips in MXF files.
Treasured can detect ARRIRAW of all types, in recovered files — regardless of extension — in cards and in hard disks.
Treasured has a built-in preview function, and shows ARRIRAW thumbnails that help identify the content of the corrupted media.
