Well you guys have helped me out before so here goes. I have to transfer some HDV tapes (recorded on a Sony FZ1E) at 1080i resolution. I am using a matrox RTX 2 to capture and Premiere CS3 so here is the big question, is the Matrox card taking the native MPEG2 vid and Mpeg1 layer 2 audio streams and encoding to another intermediate format? I just need to export from and to the FZ1 without losing info. Is there an uncompressed HDV format that I can import into Premiere and pump back out to the FZ1 via Firewire?
