[Jayson Rahmlow] "I do a lot of effects work, and practically everything I shoot I key things out of."

Then you DEFINITELY want to capture in the highest quality you can. Chroma keying depends on... well, chroma, and re-rendering an HDV can really screw up colors. It's a lot like DV in that regard.

I recommend watching a podcast by Alex Lindsay, the founder of DV Garage and Pixel Corps, called "The Road to 1080p Part 2". In it you will find an excellent description of the differences between 4-4-4, 4-2-2 and 4-1-1 color resolution, and you will come to understand the challenges of keying DV or HDV. It's WELL worth the 15 minutes it takes to watch.

You can get the podcast here: http://macbreak.libsyn.com/index.php?post_id=70596

As you watch if, keep in mind that Alex Lindsay runs a company that makes DV chroma keying plugins.

I alway say that shooting HDV for chroma key work is an okay idea, as long as you're going to work in standard definition. In high-def? Different story.
