What is RAW Footage (with examples)
Before you purchase your RAW footage, here is some information as to what exactly raw footage is: Raw footage is footage straight from the camera with no edits, cuts, or editing added. I shoot in a format called Canon LOG1 which makes the image look very flat, desaturated, and with no contrast. This is done so that I can have more control over the color correcting process.
Here are some things to note abut RAW footage:
Flat, neutral color profile
formatted as an MP4 file in H.265 which means your default application on windows and mac cannot open and watch these files. You would need a special video player.
There are no edits or cuts so each starting and ending of a clip may be unusable.
Audio is straight from camera which means it may not be the absolute best quality.
File sizes of my footage (Total) is between 500GB and 1TB per wedding
