My big question would be - what was the original source? If you've started with DV and gone to MPEG2, I seen no advantage of going to Cineform or any HD formats. DV-AVI is an excellent codec and Vegas' DV codec is one of the best out there. But, realistically, just edit the MPEG2, output it, and be done with it.

Ed..my apologies for not making myself clear on my goal...and again thankyou for educating me...i will be rendering mostly the best of my hdv and avchd into the cineform codec. if i render that..after cuts, deshaking some kayaking and marine wildlife footage, and brightness contrast..what is best recommended to render to..back to cineform avi codec? i have never done this at this stage..so again i am new.

secondly, i am mixing family stuff to render to a file i can make good dvds for the family...with old dv avi files, some mpeg2 clips a friend put disks, and of some footage captured recently in hdv converted to ciniform ave. what do you suggest i take the mix on the timeline and render it to what kind of codec to save the most infomration, keep resolution etc...? this mix will all be recorded i assume into a codec chosen. not having done this yet as i am still cutting 20 years of family footage...

thanks again ...and i hope to eventually become a help to other newbies onthis forum..bill

Basically everything depends on the desired output. Unfortunately there's no cut and dried answers. If you start with DV (or SD footage in general) DV does work well. For HD, Cineform works well. But you have to figure out what works best for your ultimate goals.
