DV AVI uses DV compression, and therefore will introduce a small amount of artifact due to that compression. The file will be one-fifth the size of an uncompressed AVI. I use uncompressed as intermediate files during editing and then save to a compressed file for my final output, whether that be MS DV AVI, WMV, MPEG, etc.
