RE: [TIG] Re:4:4:4

Well, before you trash it, consider it the same compression 
quality as Digital Betacam.

OK, now you can trash it.

But seriously, yes it's compressed, but for many applications 
digital beta is just fine.  You want "real" 444? Then presumably 
you want it for effects and matting, which implies short-form, 
so use a disk technology for storage.
