too lazy, don't want to type whole story. Messing around in CCC and find Pixel Format which has the following options.
YCbCr 4:4:4 Pixel Format
YCbCr 4:2:2 Pixel Format
RGB 4:4:4 Pixel Format Studio (Limited RGB)
RGB 4:4:4 Pixel Format PC Standard (Full RGB)
Just wondering which I should have it set on. YCbCr 4:4:4 is the default. Full RGB doesn't look so bad, but I think it crushes some blacks. Not sure if the other two options look worse, or I just need to spend more time with them.
