What would you say if I told you I could change 1GB of data into 200MB without losing quality or data? Firstly, you might not believe me, and secondly, you’d probably write me off as a complete nerd. But that is exactly what the developers of the Rawsie app are claiming. Now by using the desktop version of the app, you can experience the life-changing magic of tidying up, not just in your closet, but in your hard drive as well.
Even though many cameras offer built-in timelapse features that automatically process your images and spit out a single mp4 file at the end of it, a lot of photographers prefer to shoot a big series of raw files, process them ourselves, and then edit them together on the desktop. It gives us a lot more control and results in better quality.
But that can be a slow and painstaking process. And most editing software isn’t built for editing such large image sequences. DaVinci Resolve, however, has a little trick up its sleeve that’ll let you edit raw image sequences with ease. And it’s all thanks to CinemaDNG support. The workflow is detailed in this video from District 7.
