Default Exporting to file--> best quality

I'm currently making a movie consisting of .mts2 (1440x1080i), .avchd and .mxf files (1920x1080i). I will export to file whitout any reduction in quality, what should I choose?

Best regards,

Kes

Thanks for reply. A television program (nature) want to use some of my video footage of a bird. Although I have many hours with film, and want to make a selection of the best video footage. So to do so I have used Edius 6 to gather all the best footage and also done some editing, so then I want to export this to a file which I could send with an extarnal hard disk to the television company. Hence, it is very important that there is no quality loss. So if I use Canopus Lossless it will be an AVI file without any loss? It will still be HD (1920x1080i)?

You also should ask the TV station what format they want. If they do not have Grass Valley, they would need the GV Playback codec to be able to see it if you used Canopus (now GV) lossless, and most will not go to that trouble.

If I had to pick a generic universal format for most stations it would be mxf mpeg2. Obviously it is not lossless, but that does no good if they can't play it.

Canopus Lossless is an avi file with 0.0000000% of loss from your original

I have now asked the TV station what type of file that they prefer.

If they would like a file with 0.0000000% of loss, then the only option is to provide them with Canopus Lossless file along with a GV Playback codec?

Or I could provide them with the raw material, but that will take ages to sort out from tapes and files...

I got a answer from the TV station and they prefer mxf mpeg2. There are several options when exporting to mxf, what selection should I make to obtain best possible quality?

if you export MXF at 1920x1080 at 35mbits/sec, it will be plenty good

you can also export to MXF 4:2:2 at 50 mbits/sec for ultimate quality

I agree with Anton; MXF at 1920x1080 at 35mbits/sec.
This is about the highest bitrate I see in stations.
