MSG strangness

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

Simon Woods replied to Simon Woods's discussion A question about Quicktime
"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 "

64bit Movie Support

I realise there have been a couple posts recently about this, but I want to add to those statements. I purchased Studio Artist for video processing specifically, so the feature is very important to me. I also use the photo processing tools, but I would be pained if the feature isn't somehow brought over into 64bit.Secondly, I also dab in animation, and have been using the tools as ways to manually rotoscope with auto painting brushes.
