Ok so I seem to know complicated things but not know the simple things... Anyway, can someone please explain what is meant when you get info on a movie and see it's "color profile"? I sort of understand things like 4.2.2 and HDV (4.2.0 or something, I don't care lol) but why then does color profile of HDV material show up as 1-1-1??? And why does the color profile of some SD footage I took on an Ikegami have a color profile of completely different (can't remember) numbers whch are higher, when it's not even "HD"?

:D

Thanks, but that still doesnt explain what the "color profile" bit in QuickTime means because it shows HDV footage as 1-1-1??? It may have or may not have anything to do with color sampling such as 4:2:2 but I'm interested to know what it does mean :s?
