Cineform ProspectHD

Hi
I have a question concerning quality issues when exporting an m2t file.

I normally capture the m2t files from the camera with HDLink, then I convert them to CineForm Intermediate avi for editing in PremierePro 2.0. Normally I export form there a wmv-hd file for distributing. Id like to save know an already editet project without exporting it to the camera for maybe later editing. In which format I should export it without loosing quality? When I create a cineform.avi then I have a huge file, when I create a m2t file I have a file which I can nicely store on a data dvd. So if I choose the m2t file then I have to reencode it to an cineform.avi when Id like to edit the project again. Do I then loose quality or not?

I really need some advice.

Best regards.

Fritz

Don't bother with re-encoded files (yes there will be some loss -always is). If your going through the bother of conversion then recapture the original media. Timecode is your friend. Reopen your project files and relink the captured media and apply your additonal edits.

With MiniDV I keep everything on the hard drive, with HDV, I just save the project and support files and safeguard that tape.
