Lol. If you’re not accustomed to transcoding your footage anyway, then you need to expand your workflow. I’ve always had to transcode either to a working ProRes format or even proxies for offline edits. I don’t like change, but have come accustomed to keeping my workflows as flexible as possible as technology evolves. Also, it’s pretty rare these days for me to recycle any footage over a year old (but that’s just me).
Nice. I already use Touch OSC for some junk, and I bet I could adapt this to work with our 4.6k... hmmm... https://trippylighting.com/teensy-arduino-ect/touchosc-and-arduino-oscuino/
