Re: ProRes "RAW"?

cDNG's days were numbered long before Adobe blew it off. It was really just a hack to to encode raw video without having to pay for a codec license or a lot of R&D, so it's a good choice for a starter codec. With more resolution though, its low efficiency makes it quite a pain to work with, at least for those who can't afford to spend $2000 a day on hard drives. Most independent productions don't have the budget to deal with massive 4K image sequences -- never mind larger then 4K.
Black Magic Raw isn't limited to one vendor either. Black Magic has been working on adding BRaw recording for non-BMD cameras via its newer monitors... and frankly, given the history of ProRes, it's no surprise that it's taken this long to get support for ProResRaw in Windows other than in Scratch.
The most common mezzanine codecs are ProRes and DNxHR… neither of which are vendor independent...
