I'm using pinnacle 14 Ultimate and import footage from mini-dv via firewire. Been getting loads of dropped frames on the import 'DV Quality' (AVI). I tried importing on Mpeg setting and there were no dropped frames at all.
So, when I go to compile and create the disc, if I select the 'Best quality setting', will my footage be top quality - in other words, will the computer render (?) it when compiling the disc. Years ago on Pinnacle 9 I think I remember reading that you could import using Mpeg setting and this would mean your PC doesn't have to work as hard during editing, but when you create the disc the software will then transform the quality back to AVI standard. Is the same still true for Pinnacle Ultimate??
Thanks for any suggestions.
