    Any way to capture HDV footage using a more forgiving CODEC?

    jimvt Level 1

      Until I can afford to purchase an I/O video card, such as an AJA, is there any way to import HDV footage via firewire but save the files in a less compressed CODEC - maybe at 100Mb/s?  Or am I stuck using the matching HDV project setting  (1080i30 (60i)) ?  My goal is to avoid any further trips in and out of the brutal 25Mbps HDV CODEC during editing.

       

      Thanks,
