This is a format that is used to store RAW photos on Sony digital cameras without the use of compression. It contains the complete set of information that was captured by the camera's sensors through the lens when shooting with minimum adjustments. The opportunities for post-editing depend on the camera model and lens. ARW files can be created and edited in the ArtStudio Image software.
Answer Wizard files are data files saved in the .aw format using an application developed by Microsoft. The Microsoft Answer Wizard Builder software is used to create these AW files, and this application can also be installed and used to open these .aw files.
