    Well I don't have Resolve on the MacBook Pro because when I had it before it was slow for viewing CDNG, hence I removed it. For field work, I was hoping to be able to use the player just to view the clip and show it to the director and not for editing/grading purposes. I would have thought that BRAW would be a codec that is not demanding (like CDNG).

    FWIW I can play 4K braw 12:1 fluently on a 2015 Macbook Air. Might be 8:1 but don't know how to check from the file.

    MacBook Pro 2015 with i7. BTW, I just tested again and I can load and play BRAW 4K UHD 8:1 and 12:1 up to 2-3 minutes in length. Anything larger in size and/or length it just freezes when loading.

    Well, assuming you have 16GB of ram, that coincides with the size of about 5 minutes of 8:1 braw. Seems like poor software design.

    If you are shooting 1 hour straight.... get some B cameras. And maybe Q5 or raw5:1, 8:1 or 12:1 is enough?!
    With B cameras you can start/stop recording and event.

    I'd rather not workaround the problem of a poor software design. I'll just do without a BRAW player. Maybe someday a good BRAW player will be written that is usable on a laptop.

    Every live event should have B camera, or at the very least a secondary recorder attached to the main camera. There are too many things that can (and will) go wrong if you plan on shooting for so long uninterrupted.

    I a,ways use a B Cam, to at least cover some shots, and get a camera angle change once in a while.
    Cheers

    I do use a B/C cam too but have my A cam running for a long time. This is not a camera workflow issue guys. This is, I think, a bad BRAW player design issue.
