DV AVI, Lossless, HQ...?

Hello!

I am making wedding videos in 16/9 DV only, lasting 1,5h-2h with Edius V4.
My question is what you guys are using in your project (rendering) settings (lossless, DV avi, Canopus HQ...)
and exporting settings?

Also I'm exporting to avi and letting Encore to decide (auto) on the bitrate settings.
Should I get better results exporting to mpeg2 directly from Edius?

Any advice or info on your workflow are more than welcome.

I think Procoder Express is a better mpeg-2 encoder than Encore.

So I encode all of my projects from the Edius timeline and use PCM audio.

Then let Encore trancode the audio to AC3 to save space on the DVD.

You want to use the Canopus DV codec for capturing/editing as it is made for Edius.

Exporting I am not quite sure how much is gained by lossless, I have never needed it.

Are you refering to project settings/rendering format?
Because my options are:
Canopus HQ avi
Canopus Lossless avi
DV avi
uncompressed...

When working in DV (either 4:3 or 16:9) You can use the DV settings and it will work just fine :)
