greyscale support ever?

    Part plea, part complaint, part feature request.
    Most of my work is with greyscale video from a black/white unibrain camera. (In softVNS I can could capture greyscale and record and that was much faster.)
    With jit.qt.grab I must capture 4-planes. And with jit.qt.record I must record 4-planes. And (I think) with jit.qt.movie I can only playback 4-planes. (Not sure about this without movies to test)
    I would get a huge performance-boost, especially related to hard-drive if this could all just work with a greyscale setting.
    I'm about to build a recorder with jit.matrixset to see if that will do me better.
    Thanks,
    Christopher Overstreet
    PS
    been dreaming about jitter2.0. Figure that is next on your list after this live release.

      what about jit.qt.grab (grab to disk)option. In setting you can set grab compression to None and depth to 256 grays.

      I have to use the signal for live tracking so direct to disk is not an option.
      THanks though..
