ARRIRAW is a RAW digital cinematography format, used in some 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.
ARRIRAW footage is stored as a clips inside a folder, being each frame a .ari file.
Treasured (since version 3) can detect ARRIRAW footage in recovered files (regardless of extension), in cards and in hard disks.
For preview, please verify if you have installed the necessary software.

ARRIRAW media is repaired without major problem.
An ARRIRAW repair consists in scanning a card or disk, then detecting all the RAW frames present, and output them in folders.
Each frame corresponds to an .ari file. The collection of frames inside a folder corresponds to a clip.
Aero Quartet engineers develop a Repair Kit with the following features:
- Repaired footage has same quality as originally recorded
- Repaired footage is compatible with RAW workflows
- Metadata contained inside each frame is recovered as well
ARRIRAW repairs are only available through our 4K and Cinema plans.
