Cineform HD, for HD work. For SD, I was using Huffyuv 2.1.1 for certain things. However, Huffyuv tends to cause After Effects to crash on ingest (and yes, I have the Suggest RGB always setting configured), so I don't really use it too much.

ciao,
Matt

I see, HuffYUV seems very good indeed but right now I'm checking out what it's like to work with Lagarith, it's about 30% more compressed than HuffYUV but pretty heavy so not very suitable for editing... But I think pretty suitable to render to after editing for color correction.
