We need linear mode to work with 720p

Anyone who uses GoPro cameras for live production event work needs (and appreciates!) the Linear mode that GoPro has recently added; when live switching there is no practical alternate "defish" time, and even with post processes, not having to defish saves post setup time.

 

*THANK YOU* for the Linear Modes!

 

Unfortunately -- because Hero 5 and Hero 4 do not output 1080i over their HDMI to BMD ATEM switchers, we're forced to set the switchers to 720p when using those GoPro cameras.   As currently implemented, Linear Mode is not available @ 720p resoultion.

 

PLEASE either FIX the 1080i output bug (e.g. add an option so users can manually choose the HDMI output settings) or add Linear Mode to 720p?
