Thanks for the point of view here. As we are building out Create, this one was of the things we are trying to keep in mind. For reviews (or media playback in general), if the user has access to the media stored on disk Create has the ability to switch through the representations available. We realize Create isn’t for everyone yet, but if it works in your workflow, maybe this is something to check out.
Basically in the timeline there is an indication of either the file extension of the frames, the movie or web that you can toggle between. This is telling Create to try and load the media either from the path_to_frames, path_to_movie or look at the web-transcoded version and stream it. You can also set a preference to try and load one of those first. (i.e. “always try to load the frames first”)
If you check this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JNSaq1DGgO0 in the timeline there’s a “mov” on the left hand side, that indicates it’s pulling the path_to_movie for playback.
Let us know if you have any questions or if you have any other feedback! Would love to hear from you!
