How are video frames derived in the 5D3?

One of the milestones in DSLR video, in my view, is the idea of deriving video frames from full-frame captures. Anyone who has seen a time-lapse movie, has been struck by the level of clean detail and color possible when each frame is processed from a full capture.

In the latest generation of embedded DSP units in DSLRs, we are starting to see the bandwidth necessary to do this. But has anyone taken the step?

Meanwhile, I've seen it written several places, at least unofficially, that the 5D3 does not do line skipping . Now this would be interesting. Is the 5D3 doing some sort of local processing but otherwise still sub-sampling the sensor, or is the 5D3 actually doing full-frame captures for video frames? If the latter were true, it would be an important step, and would surely attract major video interest.
