Introducing BRAW Studio Premium License V3

With the release of our latest major version, we're introducing a new licensing system: the Premium V3 license. This license is required to access BRAW Studio's premium features in our plugins, the BRAW Studio Panel in Premiere Pro, and the new BRAW Studio Desktop App. You can find a complete list of premium and free features in this article.
Please note that
any registered BRAW Studio License V2 or V1 will not unlock premium features and is equivalent to using BRAW Studio in free mode
To enjoy BRAW Studio's premium features, you'll need to upgrade to the new V3 license. However, if you already have a V2 license, you can upgrade at a discounted price. Details can be found in the links below.
If you choose not to upgrade, you can still use the old BRAW Studio V2 version, but it will no longer be updated or supported on newer Adobe product versions (newer than Premiere Pro and After Effects 2023). You can download the old version installers here:
Note: If you require even older legacy versions, please refer to this article.
By upgrading to our new Premium V3 license, you'll have access to the latest and greatest features and ensure compatibility with future Adobe products. Don't miss out on this opportunity to take your video editing to the next level!

Updating without a V3 License: What happens to your project?

Without a V3 license, you will only have access to BRAW Studio's Free features. While your project in Premiere Pro will remain unaltered, you will not be able to grade your BRAW files with the BRAW Studio Panel or use our other advanced tools. In After Effects, any footage using the "BRAW Studio Layer Settings" effect will have a red cross.

Upgrading from Premium V2 to V3 License

If you bought from

If you purchased your BRAW Studio V2 license from, you can easily upgrade by purchasing the upgrade license from there : Autokroma BRAW Studio Upgrade V2 to V3 Store. Once you've entered the new license in the Settings & License popup while your V2 license is registered, it will convert your licenses to a BRAW Studio V3 license.
Note: Upgrading to V3 is only possible if you have previously registered a V2 license.
If you don't have a V2 license, you must purchase the full product

If you bought from

For those who purchased their V2 license from, simply add BRAW Studio to your cart from this link while logged in with the account where you already purchased a V2 license, and the discount will be applied automatically. This allows you to get the upgrade license without paying the full price of BRAW Studio Premium V3, giving you access to all our new Premium features!
Note: Upgrading to V3 is only possible if you have previously registered a BRAW Studio Premium V2 license.

Upgrading from Premium V1 to V3 License

If you have an old V1 license and wish to upgrade, please contact us. We offer a small discount on the V3 license for customers with V1 licenses.
