I have a variety of HD source footage coming in for a project: SonyXD Cam, P2, HDV, etc... I can get everything into QuickTime batch export if necessary. What's the best QT codec (if any) to use for my edit? I know about Cineform, and if that's the answer, I'll stick with CS3 for now.
I'm stepping down most footage to 720p as that's the final delivery. I would like to conform everything to 'scrubbing butter' before going to edit (as a test as much as anything)
