Hello all, I have a question, hince the reason I'm here. I did a search already and found some answers but not everything. I have a client who has given me home movies of his kid playing basketball on DVD's. I'm using the program Mpeg Streamclip, but now I'm worried quality.
I want to know what is the best compression in Mpeg Streamclip for editing video from DVDs where I won't loose too much quality? Video is intended to go online and on dvd's. I thought I had ProRes codec but I don't.
Thanks, yeah sorry about that, I'm looking for the best codec. Now will the DVCPro50 work well in FCP?
I originally had ripped the DVD using H.264 but I realized its only a finishing codec. Then I tried the DV-NTSC codec from that H.264 file, and saw I was loosing some quality, but will ripping it from the DVD at DVCPro5 be better?
Video ripped from a DVD can't get any better than DV50. Unlike DV which operates in 4:1:1 color space, DV50 operates in 4:2:2 color space. It won't make the video appreciably better, but text and graphics will be a lot better.
