"Capturing via DV (aka I1994, ilink or Firewire) is a lossless process - the video transferred from your camcorder is an identical copy of the original. "
I certainly do not experience this. I use Premier Pro to capture using IEEE and the copy (AVI) is definately not the same as the original? I do not drop any frames during capture and receive Zero errors after the capture has completed.
However, the copy has a loss in resolution, very jerky and when the camera moves a bit fast, the edges of images (people etc) are blocky or edgy and looks distorted.
I have made ad DVD thinking that the quality will be good on playback using set top but it is exactly the same as the capture copy.
