Why does Arena / Resolume need a propietary codec? Doesn't make sense. Just work on agreat implementation of ProRes / DNX / Cineform ....no need to keep pushing the own codec.
Prores is an Apple product that requires licensing if you want to play it without quicktime. Apple doesn't let anyone license their products.
Even if we can get licensed at one point, it will still have to be decoded on your CPU.
With one layer and clip that's no problem for most machines, but as you get up to 10 or more layers, all with prores clips, you bump into trouble.
That's not an issue with DXV and a modern GPU.
