UKFCUG 4:2:2 Discussion: February 24, 2011
4:2:2 used to be outside the reach of many independents who were locked into the world of 4:2:0 or 4:1:1 production. Now that Apple's 10-bit, full raster ProRes codec is widely used in the post production industry, the codec has also found it's way into devices enabling native ProRes recording on acquisition. The advantageous are clear: 10-bit, full raster, very high quality recording; with a smooth, efficient, post-production process. The questions remain - do you need 4:2:2?
