Hi John and all, Why is it I often see one thing in the preview for MSG and another in the main canvas render? Is it my settings, or is it just the way it is? Continue

"Very interesting - I found 4444 because QT10 was using it, I do use alpha channels quite a bit for compositing 3D software output, also file size is becoming an issue as my 1TB is getting full now!"

Simon Woods replied to Simon Woods's discussion A question about Quicktime
"Yes, the new codecs even appear in SA, so I made it default since it works so well "
