Hi, I have no development knowledge but, any Developers on here know if it would be possible to make a video player in the rack? Reason desperately needs one, but I don't when, if ever Reason will bring that feature. Reason studios if your reading this you know what to do. It would really be great, for film scoring. I imagine this isn't possible but hoping there's a chance that some bright developer might be able to do it haha. Selig maybe you ? ;)

I don't think video support is possible for REs at this time.

Of course no video support in RE format.
I remember now discontinued utility, that view last time about 6-8 years ago.

In the meantime, some Reason users use this:

But, actually, if you are serious about film scoring you should be thinking about using Cubase, or Logic, or Studio One because, as well as having a built-in video player they have all the other little things that make scoring to picture easier like markers, tempo tracks etc. Plus, now you can use Reason as a plugin in those DAWs so you can have the best of both worlds.

I don't believe ReSync is discontinued. It looks like it's available for $19.99. I've never tried it, but it looks like it's been updated to version 2 now.
