I'm pretty sure that cineform would be the new go-to codec for pc users. Yes, it is in an MOV wrapper, but I haven't heard much about negative performance because of that.

My boss and I are working on a film project with footage bouncing back and forth between ours and the director's office. When I'm working on my footage, I can use the 'delete' key with my ins and outs

I think I've noticed that unchecking Use Previews recently actually seemingly makes it much faster. As if it is actually MAKING it use previews or something. I would give that a shot.

P.S. If it's easier to do these based on time remapping precomp values, that would work for me as well. So really then, it would just be triggering a time remap based on mouse overlay.
