MPEG2 or AVI capture???
on Aug 13, 2002 at 7:38:24 pm

I would like to know the best way of capturing dv video, using my Pinnacle dc1000. I have a 110minute project that I would like to edit, then output to vhs and also DVD. I was wondering if i should capture using mpeg2 or AVI. I would like the best looking results for both vhs and dvd. So should i capture at MPEG2 8 bits, 4 bits (so everything fits on a dvd), or AVI. I really dont know how rendering from one format or bit rate to another will affect my video quality. Also are there any resources that would give me info on the this topic?
Thanks, Bob

if you have everything on hand, then the best way is to do it and see the difference. It won't take much time. I think you will want to capture avi so you can edit easilly.
