Avi Or Mpeg-2 ?



3 answers to this question

Recommended Posts

What are the advantages/disadvantages of using MPEG-2 rather than AVI DV and are there any restrictions on using either ?


For what ??


The best format of video to use for the job depends on just what "the job" is, doesn't it ?

guess you are going to want more info…


DV AVI – uncompressed - fast to edit – lossless format


Downside… really big files.



MPEG – small files


Downside… compressed – loses quality if re-rendered a time or two - can suck the life out of an editor



You have to choose. If archival – DV AVI hands down.


If mundane, 10th ranked high school basketball warm-up game… mpeg!
