Arriraw reading in Baselight--pixels issue

Fri Apr 21, 2017 5:08 pm

I got some arriraw footage that baselight is having an issue reading---
it says unsupported arriraw resolution
I have latest baselight software

its complaining about the pixels being 2868x2152

Now Resolve reads them & outputs dpxs at that rez
& ARC reads & outputs 2880x2160 dpx showing the extra pixels

The recordings were done on a odyssey

Is this really a baselight issue? or should they have changed a record setting "somewhere" to make it 2880x2160

Hi Tom,
The resolution 2868x2152 is the sensor dimension for 2K ProRes recording format and is used in the ARC or SDK to crop ARRIRAW images identical as if it be recored in ProRes 2K.
I test some old Odyssey 4by3 files from an very old firmware version 1.0.214 with the current ARRIRAW SDK and it can be handled.
The latest BaseLight is also using this SDK version.

Is ut possible to get a few .ari Odyssey files to see what is wrong?
