Characters remaining count for length-limited fields in Orchestrator Modules

In some orchestrator modules (e.g. FFMPEG) some fields have a limited length. Where a field has a limited length, attempts to commit a string that is over-length triggers no error message, but all changes are unsaved, meaning it is possible to edit a module's settings, believe it has changed, and only realise later than all changes were lost. As such, I propose a UI/UX improvement that tracks remaining characters in fields with limited length, and add a warning that a field is over-length before exiting module edits to ensure that any other changes are not lost.
