What is the best compressor for best quality?

What is the best compressor for best quality? I don't mind how much space it takes up I just want to know what compressor gives the best image quality?

Not exactly sure what you mean. Are you asking what encoding program gives the best quality? Or are you asking what codec (i.e., H.264, HuffYUV, Windows Media, etc.) is the best?

If you really dont care how much space it takes, export uncompressed.

Otherwise, the Huffyuv codec is free and will cut your space requirements by 50%.

Yes, if you need a lossless codec, the Huffyuv codec is a good choice. It is the codec I have been using when I need to output uncompressed.
