    Macros on Tricaster Mini 4K

    Hello.

    Just upgraded our old Tricaster Mini 4sdi to a Tricaster Mini 4K.
    I couldn't find the Macros tab on the new 4K mini, so I reached out to Newtek Customer service.

    This is what I was told:
    "The Tricaster Mini 4K doesn't support Macros. Those decisions are made above my pay grade. If I had to guess it was something that had to be cut for internal resources consumption reasons but that's just a guess on my part. I would recommend making a post in the feature request section of forums.newtek.com and asking for it to be added back."

    So here I am posting it. I am absolutely baffled as to why Macros would be removed (except if it was done to encourage people to buy a larger Tricaster). But still...We produce linear TV shows using our Tricaster Mini. Losing the ability to do Macros is huge.

    Anyone have any ideas why this is happening, and how I can get macros back?

    Thanks.

    The latest software update for the Mini 4K has added the macro system back.
