Any good way of capturing 4:2:2 without breaking the bank?

So I have a really bad Chroma Key setup. My lighting's all over the place with no good way of getting even lighting so I have to make use of what I have now. I have an a6500 and I'm recording it with a capture card. Since the software I'm using records at 4:2:0 it's not the best for chroma keying.

Using AmarecTV I can record 4:2:2 (even 4:4:4) from my capture card but I don't have the hard drive space to record lossless video all the time, and even my compressed x264vfw settings are pretty huge (if I remember correctly it was about 150+gb for a 1hr recording at CQP 14).

I asked this question on another forum but the answer I was given was "buy an Atamos" but I don't have the money for that. Is there anything else I can use to record 4:2:2? Is there any good lossy codecs that work for Amarec that record at 4:2:2 that won't eat up all my hard drive space?

move this to the appropriate forum if necessary
