[Michael Gissing] "Cloud storage and processing has been touted for a while now"

The biggest roadblock, if we are talking about eliminating friction, is how to get the footage to the cloud in the first place. Maybe at some point in the future you can directly record the equivalent of ProResHQ or 4444 4K, 8K or better directly, live to the cloud from camera. We are quite a bit away from that right now.

Practical, real-world example. The crew comes back from a week's production in Scotland and Ireland with 20TB of raw footage. How do I practically get that into the cloud at least as fast as I can copy it drive-to-drive (which is still slower than we would like), in order to start editing? And EVERYTHING is for potential use, so no, you can't pull selects in the field ahead of time.

EDIT: Oh, and significant portions of the industry are not allowed to have their machines connected to the internet.
