Two Flashpoint StreakLight 360 Ws- TTL -able??

Is there a way to get TTL sync with these? (Fingers crossed.)
I have K1 arriving tomorrow. I have used them with my K3II, but have been hoping to advance to TTL, just not aware if there is a way. Novice, in some of the lingo BTW. Thanks for any help.

Not at the moment

Unfortunately not at the moment and unlikely in the future.

You said you wanted "TTL Sync" ..... Could you be more specific about what you would like flashes to do, and how you were hoping to control them. There might be someone with an alternative suggestion.

There is hope! Thank you for reply! HSS would work for what I'd need I guess.
(Not sure I see difference of use for TTL and HSS) ....just hoping to be able to use large aperture lenses wide open in day portraits with flash.

I use the same strobe as you (Godox for Nikon version) with HSS on my Pentaxes.

I have one Cactus V6 II radio on the body, another on the flash.

Until Cactus get a true P-TTL conversion going, you put the strobe manually into HSS mode. Here the combination is in action, but not in HSS:

I understand you better now. No ttl but manual exposure HSS is definitely available by mounting a the Godox trigger on a Cactus V6 II.
