Programs that can edit and export HDV losslessly?

Hi There,

The chances are this has been asked before, so I apologise.

I've been using Adobe Premiere Pro as my editing software for a long time, but when exporting HDV (Or indeed any MPEG-2 file) it has to re-encode everything, even if the majority of the footage is unchaged from the original files.

I was wondering if anyone could give me a list of editing software that is capable of exporting HDV without re-encoding the unchanged parts (I believe this is called Smart Rendering?). I am aware that where any edits are the whole GOP will have to be re-encoded, but in this particular case there's only about 4 edits in a 103 minute file.

I've been looking at the websites of various programs, but I can't figure out whether "Native HDV Editing" means it can just import in native format without re-encoding, or wether it can also export in native format without re-encoding.

Obvisously, I don't expect it to be a comprehensive list, but just what you can think of off the top of your head. Thanks a lot.

I recently downloaded a trial version of Vegas Pro 8 and I found a setting in the preferences dialog box that looks like the attached image.

File -> Preferences -> General (Tab)

I'm not sure exactly what "no recompress long-GOP rendering" does. Maybe it does exactly what it says.

Pinnacle Studio and Liquid both smart render.
