Capture to MPEG-2 or DV?

DV AVI uses no compression, is easier to work with in the editor but creates huge files!


Thus it is capable of the highest quality potential…


MPEG-2 will be compressed, uncompressed and compressed again every time you dabble with it. The files are smaller but because of all the compressing/un-compressing long video clips tend to bog down in the editor.


The 'quality' should be less, in theory, but I have never met anyone who can honestly see a bit of difference on a TV at 12 feet…


Try both and see which one works for you.
