[gary adcock] "Using the HQ codec only offers advantages if you are planning on doing heavy effects or corrections within the ProRes codec or the FCS3 suite, and if you are you should be working in the lossless 4444 version, You gain nothing going to HQ if the compositing is being done outside of the FCP/ Color workflow, nothing at all. "

Hey Gary. I've read several times that it often makes sense to stay with regular ProRes and had that experience with all the HD footage I've worked with. Your statement above suggests that there is some advantage if the footage will be experiencing 'heavy' manipulation. Could you give some examples of what 'heavy' has meant in your experience? In other words, what post production work/workflow seems to trip the need to move into the 4444 version to keep highest quality?

Thanks!
Phil
