Does MLVFS Chroma Smoothing effectively turn 444->420 ?

Testing different ways to deal with Moire and being that blurring and upsampling are visually similar, am I giving up one of the reasons for shooting raw in the first place (444, I know the bit depth is still there).

Just give up.. I used to run around in circles trying to get rid of moire. You can't not without losing tons of detail and looking like SD footage. Maybe the mosaic engineering vaf? Seems like the only real solution.

Yeah I've come to that conclusion (though I've found the ACR defringing tools can work wonders in for the coloured variety, even though its not designed for this)

Well I'm on 70D, VAF's ludicrous pricing with intl. shipping makes it almost the same as trading the 70D for a 5D3. I'm amazed anyone buys them.
