Can we stop this silly thread, it is getting a little personal.!

It might be interesting to discuss instead what colourist's feel about th=
e various image enhancers in terms of look, this is such an important par=
t of the job. We can all learn from peoples views.
We use the  DVNR unit's here at Rushes simply because it is the only unit=
 that takes 4x4 seriously. 4:4:4 is fundemental to the way we work here, =
both our telecines and flames and edit suites are 4:4:4 compliant along w=
ith the matrix infastructure.
IF 4:4:4 operation is not essential to the majority of users here , then =
I would love to hear their subjective opinions of the effect of the vario=
us crates.
The MNR11 does not correctly support 4:4:4.
The image enhancers are a vital tool to the colourist's and we use it, al=
ong with others, as a FX device not just as a clean up tool.
best wishes
