Thanks Craig. That is something I was thinking about - the notion of .mov files being supported down the road and/or this FS7 mxf format and folder structure being supported. In general I would agree that one should always keep the camera originals. By the time I start editing, I've rewrapped, custom named, and sometimes restripesd the timecode of my video clips based on the LTC audio from lockit boxes. Our editorial and archiving will reference these files. The process to get the clips into this position would never be retained with the original clips and one would have to redo this process to get there. Essentially it boils down to just sucking it up and having the originals backed up, the originals rewrapped and processed for editing backed up. It'd basically be having to accommodate double the storage needs for the same content.
