Hi, Canon shooters.
I'm probably doing something obviously wrong, but, after importing Raw LT footage from my C70 into my MacBook Pro (M1 Max) and 2.9 Cinema Raw Development, I don't see an image in the Preview monitor.
Here's a screenshot. Any ideas?

Thanks for checking in with us. To help us get a better sense of what you're facing, please provide some additional information:
I have the same problem as Erniedogs. I can see the thumbnails in the media pool and when I click on one single file the duration of that file shows up in the preview window. When I hit the play button it does play and I hear the audio but never any video. All of the options on the right are grayed out except the brightness, the color space, and gamma. I can also export files successfully but that is of no use since I can't change any of the settings like ISO, white balance, etc. I'm using a Mac M1 Max but have also tried it on an older Mac with an Intel processor. The files work fine in FCPX, Premier, and DaVinci Resolve. I'm using a Canon R5C. I sent one of my files to a friend and he got it to work in an Intel iMac and a Mac M1 Max. I've called CAnon twice and they have no answers and don't appear to be too interested in finding an answer. Please Help!!
Unfortunately Cinema RAW Development does not support the M1 chip, so it may not run correctly on a computer that has that chip. I am including the system requirements for that software further down in this post.
I see Erniedogs' reply that updating his firmware resolved the issue. It might not help in this case since the software doesn't support the M1 chip, but it is worth a try. If you need to update your firmware the file is available HERE. Once you are on the web page click on the Software & Drivers button and the current firmware version is 188.8.131.52.
