BLUE 2 and RED 4 bundled together?

Now that BLUE 2.0 works as an AVX plug-in like RED does is there any reason to get them bundled together? I thought the only reason to have RED too was because it worked as a plug-in while BLUE previously did not. Is there some sort of feature set that RED has over BLUE? My Avid dealer is quoting me both aps bundled on the same system and I'm wondering if I really need both anymore.

Hi Dave,

Yes, there are indeed areas where the 2 applications do not overlap:

Thanks, Peter. I just found the RED vs. BLUE page on the BFX site and you're right...the aps are sorta the same, yet sorta different. For a grand I guess having both is worth it. Although it seems like they should(probably will) combine them into one killer ap in the future. Boris PURPLE?

That really surprises me about the 16bit vs. 8bit color depth. How much does that hurt when creating for HD?

Crap. All I really want is for RED to come with some better 3D cameras and lights. I don't think I should need a whole 'nother ap for that. The bevels and warps might be nice too. But I also plan on jumping up to HD soon, which is why I'm getting a new system, so the whole Blue thing might be moot for me.
