Seriously the best codec out there for the motionography/3D/film world....

I wish Apple would buy up this codec and put it in every single release of QuickTime.

This is simply the best stand-alone LOSSLESS video codec out there, for the money. Video professionals attempting to maximize their hard drive space (that's all of us!) who need a real-time compression/decompression codec . . . this is it. Been using it for years. They are also religious about their stability updates.

This said I do not use it constantly any more, as I do less video SFX work than I used to, but this product should be considered by those who seek for total lossless compression. There are few solutions that really do loose "0" data. This is one of them.

Four plus years without comments, so I thought I'd weigh in. I can honestly say I have never encountered a video that actually required this codec. Then again, I'm not in any professional video field.

I have it installed nonetheless, just in case.

Yup... this codec isn't used for final distribution... but is used extensively in-house inside of lots of design firms.
