All,

Great point here Dave. I've always been concerned with contours and aperture
correction in the bay. I come from the less is more school. For a more
filmic look, its best to go as far upstream as possible and sweep out those
F500 menu items that involve aperture. I have worked in 1080psf recently
with Bob Giraldi on McDonalds and Hallmark spots, and it was the shooters
who brought this to my attention. In a HD signal flow there are too many
gotcha's between the source and record decks. Who would have thought that
high frequency management would involve looking under so many rocks. 

Best,

Bob
