What problem do you see this solving?
I upload my studio sessions via cloud backup to my NAS at home. However, when working on my PC or MacBook Pro, I often encounter obstacles. I'm not in close proximity to the NAS, and the Wi-Fi appears obstructed due to the building's older construction. A more efficient network-based workflow for handling RAW files on the NAS, allowing me to seamlessly access and work with the session on my computers, would greatly enhance my process. I'm unsure if the Enterprise version offers this feature, but remote retouching teams operating away from shooting studios could significantly benefit from direct access to NAS files without the need to duplicate sessions locally and reorganize the main folders.
When was the last time you were affected by this lack of functionality, or specific tool?
I encounter frequent hangs when attempting to create masks or apply changes in batch, and I'm uncertain whether it's due to the network (utilizing WIFI6 AX3000, which should offer strong performance) or if it's a compatibility issue related to working over the network. The process becomes significantly slower when dealing with a larger number of files for batch changes.
Are you using any workarounds or other solutions to achieve your goals in Capture One?
Initially, I attempted to open the session from the NAS on various computers, and the performance was abysmal. After researching in the community, I found a post detailing the same issue. The suggested solution was to copy the session locally and work on the raw files over the network. However, this process is manual and not streamlined, especially when dealing with numerous sessions. I haven't tested this method with catalogs, but considering how catalogs typically perform, I'm fairly certain the results would be worse.
Are you happy to be contacted further about this suggestion or request?
