Default HDV capture HQ or HQX??

Which codec will give me the best quality when I capture HDV (1440 x 1080 50i)?

I have tried HQ and HQX.
HQX makes bigger files, but I can only preview (full screen) on my computer monitor, because the NX-card isn't (as known) supported yet.
Even when I make a split screen, I can't see any difference.

And if HQX is the better choice, is there any difference in performance on my computer?

Please advice.

HQ = 8 bit
HQX=10 bit.

If you do alot of grading 10 bit is better. If it is a straight cut an spit operation 8 bit is sufficient.

If you are not going to do much processing of the video, you will get the best quality by capturing HDV files as m2t, rather than transcoding to another codec. Realtime performance isn't so good with m2t, but if you're not applying many filters it should still be fine for editing.

Kleurcorrectie das makkelijker denk ik maar dat is een te simpele omschrijving. :)
Het proces van kleuren veranderen, verbeteren enz.
In EDIUS kun je ook mattes en mask gebruiken dus de mogelijkheden zijn eindeloos.

Color correction a bit limited description. The process of altering or enhancing color.
In EDIUS 6 you can use mattes and masks so the possibilities are endless.
