Oh, ok. Never considered the VideoToaster to be a truly live video editing suite. Did NewTek sell it as such or did it just develop into it for you?

I but I fear these are analog hardware features.

Features that you will not be able to replicate in a digital FPGA.

To re-create the video toaster card you might be able to re-create all the digital bits in an FPGA, but for the analog bits you would have to use the same (or similar) analog hardware components to those on the original VideoToaster card(s).

I tried to explain it earlier, MiniMig is almost 100% digital and lends itself to recreation an FPGA.

The video toaster card is at least 50% analog.
