comment Difference between 4K Edition and 4K Cineform
This is indeed the biggest factor but @Fred42vid is not wrong either, the two versions use two diffrent codecs that compress the video diffrently. He may have used h.264 with Level 5.1 or 5.2, it supports up to 4k. If the bit-depth of both files were the same I would estimate a file size of 60-80GB for the cineform file. That estimate includes chroma subsampling, h.264 would have 4:2:0 or 4:2:2 when using a standard profile, Cineform has 4:4:4.

Yes but like I said, the QuickTime codec family is very outdated and slow. Neither the PNG nor the Targa QuickTime implentation is using the full format features. Same with the JPEG2000 codec.

Well Targa and PNG are out of the game as they dont offer a container for the sequence, the downside I mentioned why I'm hesitating with JPEG2000 (which imo is superior to both Targa and PNG). That BBC codec sounds interesting, compiling shouldn't be a problem as long as it does a good job, will test that out. A pure windows codec is unfortunetaly no option as I need a cross-plattform codec like I mentioned already.

I did a test in Windows, the compression ratio was ok, the encoding speed was quite good though. If a workflow between OSX and windows works I'll accept this as the answer. Though I'm always open to more suggestions.

ProRes doesn't even compress at all. I could compress an 17GB ProRes 4:2:2 to 1.4GB with LZMA2.. The same sequence was 700MB with (lossless) JPEG2000 compression and 16bit bpc. So no, ProRes is really no option. It's an very outdated codec that wasn't properly updated for years. And yes I do need 16bit if I do color correction. Please name me a post house that does NOT use 32bit in the color correction workflow...

Sounds promising! Though one question, how is the workflow betweens OS's? As far I can see it integrates into the AVI output module on Windows but not the QuickTime module but it looks like its using QuickTime on OSX, will I be able to use a Ut AVI in OSX and a Ut Mov in Windows? I'm off work for the next weeks and don't have a Mac at home to test this out myself.

comment Reverse engineering: which video editing software was used on this video?
You could look if you find someone on services.creativecow.net The site is mostly visited by Video and Animation professionals. You could also create a "hiring thread" in the job forum of cgsociety, though they have an focus on 3D rather than 2D but I'm sure you will find talented 2D animations artists there aswell: forums.cgsociety.org/forumdisplay.php?f=319
