Blackmagic Design releases Video Assist 3.4.1 update for 12G HDR and 3G models with various improvements including BRAW from Lumix S1H.

In addition, in this update, both the 3G and 12G HDR Video Assist models (both 5-inch and 7-inch versions) get scrubbing for individual clips and improved LCD color calibration.

And as mentioned prior, those video creators using the Panasonic Lumix S1H can now connect them to Video Assist 12G HDR and record Blackmagic RAW. This gives them incredible detail and color throughout the production pipeline from camera to edit, color and mastering.

Furthermore, Blackmagic RAW saves camera settings in metadata so you can set ISO, white balance and exposure, then override them later while editing.

Do keep in mind, this also requires installation of the Blackmagic RAW 2.1 Beta 4 and DaVinci Resolve 17.1.1 updates to access the files on your computer.
