The nablet SONY RAW Plug-in allows you to link, play and edit the Sony X-OCN formats as well as F65, F55, F5, and NEX-FS700 Raw MXF files via AMA in Avid editing products. Furthermore it supports the VENICE/CineAltaV X-OCN and RAW formats.
The plug-in provides support of viewing and editing capability with the gamma curve (S-Log3) and color space (S-Gamut3.Cine). The plug-in will translate the image into S-Log2/S-Gamut when the meta data shows that the clip was shot in this monitoring environment. Otherwise, the image will be translated into S-Log3/S-Gamut3.Cine. Please select the LUT in Source Settings window accordingly.
The nablet Sony RAW Plug-in is the successor of the former Sony PLAV-RW1 plug-in. Note that the nablet plug-in and the Sony plug-in cannot coexist on the same system. The installation of the nablet plug-in guarantees a seamless transition* in your Sony RAW editing workflow after the Sony plug-in had been uninstalled.
*Note that clips in an editing project which have previously been linked by the Sony plug-in will show same plug-in name in the bins clip info although the nablet plug-in now handles them. This is because the Avid application stored the initial information persistently.
Note: The nablet plug-ins and the legacy Sony plug-ins cannot coexist on the same system. Having them both installed will result in unpredictable behaviors of the editing application.
