It would be hard to say without knowing how the specific transmitter and receiver work, some of these units will only receive the firing signal from the camera and no information about the exposure time and closing of the shutter would be transmitted. In this case it might be best to ask Godox or Yongnuo directly.

Thanks. I did talk to Godex and they told me I'm out of luck - their units won't do it and probably none will with the equip. I have.

I, too, am in the ancient world of studio strobe photography but I would be shocked if Alien Bee's did not work. Call their CS and ask the same question. This isn't really a Canon issue. It is a strobe and trigger problem. Like Mark said I doubt you will get any exposure info returned but that's no biggie.

Thanks. I didn't think of talking to Paul Bluff, but I will. Other cameras do have settings for 2nd curtain flash triggering that Canon's 5D MK IV doesn't. As tempted as I am, I really didn't want to spend $3800 for the R5 and possibly a couple grand for a new strobe just to allow me to shoot with 2nd curtain flash a couple times a year 🙂 I still don't understand why my old strobes wouldn't work....if the camera/trigger combo tells it when to flash, why wouldn't it? Maybe I just need to rent the equip. I need on the rare occasions I'd use it. I like my MK IV.... 🙂
