    AVI because it's uncompressed, therefore no or little loss of quality. It will take up more space though.

    The term "AVI" is really a generic term used to describe the container of a Windows video file. The extension AVI can mean the video is encoded with any manor of codec: from highly compressed MPEG4 codecs such as DivX, to the low compression of DV.

    Make sure you choose a codec with a low compression ratio.

    I would just go for the 'best' setting on Pinnacle capture then, as that seems to give the best quality when you're not using a dv tape. I think that the best setting uses no compression or, at the most, very low compression.
