Blackmagic video .Braw support FEATURE REQUEST

Post by luked29 » Thu Mar 11, 2021 1:25 am

Please support Blackmagic video codec. This is a fantastic codec for professional / semi-professional video production workflows. I can play the files on every other computer accept the Qnap media server. I am currently using the TVS-472XT.

This is a user forum, not a QNAP support forum.

You will need to submit a feature request directly to QNAP, posting here is nothing but a waste of electrons........

I do nothing but pro video systems with QNAP servers. I just installed a QNAP TS-h1886XU-RP with 12 drives. IT can play back 12K BRAW without issue.
You are limited by the speed of your drives. Most of the systems I install have pro users using Davinci Resolve, AVID Media Composer, Adobe Premiere and Apple FCP X.
I install TVS-872XT, TS-1685, TS-h1288X, TS-1688X, TS-h1277XU-RP, TS-h1683XU-RP. You know - systems with more than 4 drives, that are configured correctly in a single static volume (thin provision for
QuTS systems -all over 10G networks). All of my clients are doing 4K and above editing. I not only work with BRAW, I work with ProRes442HQ, ProRes4444, DNxHR, DNxHD, XAVC, Arri RAW, and .r3d files, including 8K media from .r3d.

So exactly what is your feature request ? That you could not afford an 8 bay or larger QNAP and you demand that it plays back 8K BRAW with 4 drives ?
