I am an old f**t who has worked with DV/SD video for a long time. I've also used Raylight with the P2 formats. I am totally confused about getting a good workflow for HDV going.
I captured fine, had a minor flashback when I saw the "indexing" happen (the old, old days...sigh) and then went into the timeline, which is just too sluggish for real editing. So I thought I'll make a proxy.
1-if i were going to output a cutdown version of the original HDV footage and wanted as near to identical a compression as the original footage (cuts only) what settings would be recommended?
