some reasons to use lossless codecs wrote:1. No Quality Loss is obviously a good thing...
2. Faster Seek-Times for improved editing speed. This allows you to easily scrub the timeline and rearrange clips.
3. Truly Frame-Accurate footage allows for precise cuts; important for timing.
4. Improved Stability usually prevents glitches and program crashes…

That's fine for your own system, but:
Lagarith and Huffy don't work in Avid or Final Cut and the process of capturing footage from high-def cameras used for film and TV is far different than ripping DVDs/converting raws.
I don't think the industry wants to waste time converting their 4k RED camera clips into lagarith and huffy codecs since Avid, Final Cut, Premiere, and even Vegas have support for native camera codecs.

Quoted for truth.
