    How about using the same format at a much lower bit rate?

     

    Why are you in need of offlining files anymore? Old PC? Stacking large quantities of video tracks? In need of a CUDA card to get rid of red lines over the timeline?

     

    Just curious.

    Before this latest PC, I always used Cineform to change HDV into something easier to edit. You might want to consider coughing up the money to buy Cineform Studio Premium. It uses a better compression than macro blocks and makes it pretty easy to get all of your videos into the same format.

    See this discussion on proxy editing.

    It is absolutely the complexity of decoding the video that matters the most. However, if your drives are not fast enough, the smaller file sizes help for that.

     

    FLV is not the way to go. Encoding to bigger files sizes with less complex codecs is the way to go.

     

    However, I would try editing the native video before making any decisions about using a proxy..
