You don't need any proprietary BMD equipment for Resolve. Neither keyboards, nor panels, nor output cards nor cameras.
How did that contact go, Vouk?
Is this the attempt that didn't work? Stay tuned and give it a friendly hug Or two, or three.
It would be very helpful to be able to encode directly from Resolve via the Voukoder e.g. in x265. I help myself with intermediates, but it would be a more convenient and flexible way with Voukoder.
Your plugin could encode up to 4K UHD/C4K in the free DaVinci Resolve version, in Studio version then without limits. That way you would stick to their strategy and everyone would benefit.
By the way, I use the Studio version and can test and compare high resolutions.
