    Leaving AVI

    Beau2013 Level 1

      I've been an enthusiastic Premiere user for years (Pro and Elements). The camera I've been using is s Sony DCR-TRV22 that records on miniDV cassettes. That camera is dying and I note that everything on the market now uses internal SD storage.

       

      I'm not familiar with the formats. They talk about MPEG4-AVC/H.264 and HD PS, HD FX, HD FH and HD LP, each with various recording capacities.

       

      My questions are:

       

      How do these formats compare to the miniDV avi files I'm used to from a quality perspective?

      Do these format have a negative effect on my ability to edit the video?

      Is there a particular format I should use?

       

      Any thoughts would be most appreciated.
