BRAW not supported?

Hi there,

Latest version, 1.8.4 Premium, just installed, new customer. I can't playback BRAW files, says Playback not supported. ???

I raised a support ticket last Thursday, but no response yet.

Anything silly I might be missing? Tried it on both my Macs but still says "Playback not supported" next to each BRAW thumbnail...

@Thomas Meyer - I got a copy of the 1.9beta but it doesn't work:

1) If I simply install it (upgrade) over the 1.8 which I have with a valid license, it doesn't even launch. I get the following error:


2) If I install 1.9 clean (after removing 1.8), the license key for 1.8 doesn't work and I get the following error (license key obviously removed for privacy reasons):


Any solution to this?

@Petar, thanks for reporting the Windows upgrade problem, this is something that can happen during the beta phase unfortunately. As you noticed, uninstalling and reinstalling is the way to resolve it.

I've updated your license so it's valid for 1.9, please try again.

Hello! It's weird that some braw clips will play for me but others won't... Can I be added to the 1.9 beta? It seems to be the only way to fix the issue.

The previous versions of Kyno do not support BRAWs gen 5 color science.

@Thomas Meyer: is there updated version of the 1.9 beta? The beta I am using does show BRAWs but file operations (copy, paste) are unrealible.  

If possible, please add me to the version 1.9 beta.  I opened Ticket #26213 with my license information.  Thanks.

@Thomas Meyer I got a laptop as a second machine to work on. Trying to activate the 1.9beta on it resulted in the same error as above. Is there a time limit to activating the 1.9beta license?

I'll need to switch to the laptop for the coming few months, but as it is now - I can't use 1.9beta on it. Is there a way to activate the beta license again?

Hi There, I am hoping to be added to the 1.9 Private Beta to test with updated BRaw. I was about to purchase the software, as everything works to my needs in 1.8.4 except being able to work with BRaw

Hi! I just purchased Kyno and would like to be included in the beta for 1.9 please. I'm working with BRAW (Gen5 Colour Science). I'm currently using Kyno 1.8.5 on an M1 Mac Mini. Also, is there an Apple Silicon version in development?

@Jorge Tristan - Please let me know if you hear anything back? I am ready to purchase but want to ensure I can get access to the Beta First. As I too am working wit BRAW (Gen5)

Hello everyone! I know this thread is several months old, but I'm wondering if there has been any update regarding the 1.8 gen 5 color science issue, or the release of 1.9? I'm currently on version 1.8.5, and I'm experiencing the gen 5 issue, as well as a general inconsistency with converting BRAW files.

The production company that I work at is interested in using Kyno as a MAM and a proxy transcoder, but since our A camera is an Ursa Mini 4.6k, and our B camera is a Pocket 6K Pro, that may not be realistic in 1.8.5. Are there any more codes for the 1.9 closed beta?

I did get access to the beta recently, two weeks later I reverted to 1.8.5 because it was unstable on Apple Silicon and I had to restart the app nearly every hour. At this point, I've nearly given up on Kyno and are looking for alternatives. Any recommendations?

@Thomas Meyer I like to join the beta too. And by any chance can you have a look at support ticket #27208 ?
