Video Capture Codec
on Oct 2, 2007 at 5:19:12 pm

I am currently using a Pinnacle DC1000DV capture card with Premiere 6.5 to capture in lossless AVI, edit, and export to MPEG-2/PCM for DVD.

This capture card can also capture directly to MPEG-2/PCM and edit with realtime effects rendering.

Am I creating more work for myself than is necessary by going thru AVI and exporting or does capturing and editing in AVI result in a significantly higher quality final product?

Should I just work natively in MPEG-2/PCM (or even DV)? What about compression artifacts from editing?

If your source is a DV tape is almost useless to capture in lossless AVI since your source is already compressed, unless you are capturing by components then might get a slightly cleaner image for keying.

Use AVI files with Microsoft DV Codec, that's enough for DVCPro, DV and DVcam. Files are not as large and keep the same compression of a DV tape.

Don't work directly with MPEG-2 files, they are far more compressed and compression artifact will be more visible when u apply effects on them.

In other words, yes, you get better image quality by editing with AVI files and exporting them to MPEG-2, but u don't need to make so heavy. Only animated stuff are worth to be rendered lossless.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

I waited a long time for someone to finally answer this thread.

I really appreciate it.
