This License Key supports ARRIRAW recording on CFast 2.0 cards in the ARRI ALEXA Mini camera to produce MXF/ARRIRAW files. This means you'll capture uncompressed, unencrypted images with audio and metadata attached.

The ARRIRAW License Key, enabled by ALEXA Mini SUP 4.0, allows ARRIRAW to be recorded to your ALEXA Mini in-camera CFast 2.0 cards by wrapping the files in an MXF container. Like ARRIRAW, the new MXF/ARRIRAW format is uncompressed, unencrypted, and contains audio and metadata. Only the packing is different, so third-party ARRIRAW processing tools such as DaVinci Resolve and Baselight must be updated with a new SDK, which ARRI has provided for them. ARRIRAW Converter supports MXF/ARRIRAW from version 3.4, available free of charge on the ARRI website.

MXF/ARRIRAW clips do not require specially formatted CFast cards. MXF/ARRIRAW and QuickTime/ProRes clips can be mixed on the same card.

MXF/ARRIRAW 16:9 2.8K records an area of 2880 x 1620 and supports frame rates up to 48 fps.

Internal MXF/ARRIRAW Open Gate recording

Installing both the ALEXA Mini 4:3 License Key and the ALEXA Mini ARRIRAW License Key on your ARRI ALEXA Mini camera activates the MXF/ARRIRAW Open Gate 3.4K recording modes enabled by SUP 4.0.

MXF/ARRIRAW Open Gate 3.4K produces a 3424 x 2202 resolution and records up to 30 fps. Like the ProRes 4:3 recording modes, an optional 2x anamorphic de-squeeze is available for all monitoring paths and a dual 1.5G or 3G SDI setup is supported.

In order to offer anamorphic ProRes productions an easy way to capture some shots in MXF/ARRIRAW, three additional Open Gate 3.4K recording modes were introduced:

  • MXF/ARRIRAW 4:3 2.8K (OG 3.4K)
  • MXF/ARRIRAW 2.39:1 2K Ana. (OG 3.4K)
  • MXF/ARRIRAW 16:9 HD Ana. (OG 3.4K)

These modes record 3.4K Open Gate at up to 30 fps, but the monitoring paths reflect the corresponding 4:3 ProRes modes. The active image area is noted in the metadata, so postproduction tools will crop images automatically.


NOTE: ARRIRAW Converter and other tools which support the new ARRIRAW SDK are able to override that information and return to the full Open Gate frame if required.
