And well reasoned - Like most people here I regard my job as making programmes that people want to look at often, not just make the raw material. The problem comes when the occasional client asks for the raw material.

We use to give the tapes to the B&G for free... now we charge them a $150 fee which we actually use half to buy the B&g an external hard drive. Since we have the actual raw files for editing anyway, it is simply transferring them to the external hard drive and giving that to the client. It is in HD and would probably never see the light of an editing program again :)
problem solved !

Kren,

I REALLY like that idea. I can't stand transferring them to DVD, because, like you mentioned, in most cases, even if they are paid for... they never do anything with it!

We normally sell the tapes as is for a smaller fee, but charge a whole heap more for the DVDs. While I don't like giving out the raw (unedited) footage because I honestly see no point, this solution works for all parties. Thanks for sharing!

I'll second that - an ingenious solution.
