    Best output file type for further editing

    velvetelvis70

      Hi - I was hoping someone could help me with this. I'm making shots which composit various source material (cgi, still images, video from a Canon 7D, etc) which I intend to then edit in premiere for a final output which is as lossless as possible. The trouble is shots which are even a few seconds long render out at several Gb (thus making the final edit enormous - 30Gb+ for two minutes of footage).

       

      I started outputting with quicktime (animation codec) but was advised to switch to targa sequences but these are pretty huge as well.

       

      What would be the recommended output for most lossless quality?

       

      Thanks in advance
