take one value out of range rawin, place it in raw95in
raw95in is not a range, it is a number.

create raw295in, a time series of data, rate 8 times raw95in.
Each entry is the same rate.

Take the maximum of raw295in (average, minimum or last should
also work, no?)

Wouldn't this ...

VDEF can also work on CDEF data.
