If i am rendering clips 'uncompressed/100% quality' to my hardrive, will the the codec i select vary the quality of the resulting files?

Hi
Well there's uncompressed RGB 4.4.4 - and there's uncompressed YUV 4.2.2.
Transcoding will cause losses and colour shift.....

Not necessarily a colour shift (or if it does, there's something wrong, because the equations are fully reversible) but certainly a drop in chroma resolution.
