Best way forward?
I'm transferring old VHS home movies to DVD. As Premiere doesn't support analog capture, I'm using Video Studio 6.0SE. However, Premiere will give me better control of the finished article, and I also prefer Encore for authoring, so I'm wondering whether to just capture in Video Studio, then edit and author the resulting files in Premiere/Encore? Does that sound like a plan? I already have doubts about image quality (see other thread) so I want to minimise the further loss that results from changing video formats. My sense is that a) MPEG is Video Studio's 'natural' format, b) that Premiere will only do its best with .avi files, and that c) converting from MPEG to .avi will result in image quality loss. Alternatively, I think I can capture in .avi using Video Studio. Does anyone have any thoughts as to my best way forward? It's not out of the question that I'll let the whole project stay in the Video Studio world, trading an upside in image quality for a downside in edit precision and authoring. Cheers, Ian.
