View Full Version : Cineform Intermdiate from AVCHD

cross posting this here since I don't think people check the compression forum as much, I have a question. On Cineform's site it says this:

When Neo Scene detects 4:2:0 chroma it properly interpolates the source chroma to 4:2:2 for more accurate color processing during editing and effects work. And if you ever "key" your material, CineFormís chroma interpolation will substantially improve your resulting visual fidelity.
now this sounds magic-tastic but it seems too good to be true. How can it create information that wasn't there to begin with?
How good is the interpolation really?

On the same note, does Apple Pro res do the same thing? Any opinions on which does it better?
