avi DV or quicktime photo-JPG? Which is best?

Hello everyone.

What is the best choice for quality purpouses? Just before i encode a dvd i want the best quality as posible, but i cannot render the project in avi uncompressed.

So as far as i have tested this are the two best options for me.
I do not want to render an mpeg2 file yet, becaise i will have to change the audio later and some things.

SO is the quicktime photo-jpg compressor setted at 100, better than standard DV?

thanks

Quicktime PhotoJPEG100% is superior to DV in every way. It is also, in some ways, better than some uncompressed 4:2:2 formats as it's 4:4:4! I've used it for a DVD authoring intermediary and it worked very well indeed.
