Thanks David for these details....

DV is a compressed, lossy format, with limited color subsampling (4:2:0 or 4:1:1 depending on PAL or NTSC). Not the best choice for extensive restoration work.

Keep in mind that compressed and not-compressed are not the same as lossy and lossless, although lossless generally means larger files than lossy. There are lossless compressed formats.

Note that video containing noise (e.g., typical home video) does not compress well, and does not do well when compressed to a lossy bandwidth limited format.

Some folks like to capture with VirtualDub, another old standby. It supports a wide variety of codecs.

Thank you for complements of information. I read also your other post.

In my "digitilising" 2 cases :

1) I capture with Canopus HQ and edit and filter the result to obtain the best possible DVD or MP4. Fees are higher than case 2).

2) People want only digitizing and only that. They will edit by themselves. In this case, I want to capture the cassette in Microsoft AVI to be universal. It seems that the on Edius, using DV is the only choice...
