    Codec import questions

    Mandalore65

      Hi all, I'm newer to the filmmaking experience and I have a few questions about codecs and importing. My camera takes video in .MOV files that uses the H.264 codec. I understand that this codec uses Intra-frame compression which is great for saving size but poor for editing. It was suggested to me that I transcode my video to an inter-frame codec using Microsoft's AVI. Unfortunately, after doing so, I came back with a 3GB file, unlike the original 114MB file. I understand why that happened, but I must ask if i've done the right thing. What format would you transcode to?

       

      Thank you in advance for the help,
