I am having a bunch of movie film transferred via film chain telecine to digital format. I want to archive it in a container format that will best preserve each individual frame of the original film (in other words, uncompressed). Storage space is not an issue. Is AVI the best format for this purpose? What are the pros and cons of AVI? Is there a better uncompressed option?
Once I have the films archived, I will then want to individually edit them and burn the finished product to DVD. So I'm also wondering what software(s) would be best to import the uncompressed files, edit them, and burn them.
Much appreciation to those who can lend some expertise on this.
