ARRI Reference Tool (ART)

The new tool for ARRIRAW processing

ARRI Reference Tool, or ART for short, combines the functionality of the previous ARRIRAW Converter, Color Tool, and Meta Extract into a single package. You can review clips, check and extract metadata, create and extract look files (LogC3 and LogC4), and transcode to a different format.

The ARRI Reference Tool allows you to render ALEXA 35 footage using our new ARRI Debayer Algorithm ADA-7 and REVEAL Color Science, but it is also backwards compatible with all ALEXA/AMIRA cameras.

Additionally, ART supports QuickTime/ProRes or MXF/ProRes, as well as the CODEX HDE (High Density Encoding) file format. To keep your footage organized, you can create projects with bins and sequences.
