Go with the clasics: Quicktime Animation or PNG. On Windows, you could also use Lagarith as your intermediate CoDec.
Thanks for fast answer!
Png , you mean Quicktime movie png? Or png image sequence? Lagarith? Where can i get that codec , does After Effects come with that one?
I tried converting the hdv format into quicktime png , I rendered a 20 sek clip which took around 5 min to complete, but when I imported the clip into Premiere, the playback was very laggy. Am I doing someting wrong, I will need a failry good playback to be able to edit the clips.
Tried rendering Quicktime (animation as output) and now It works a little better, why is playback slow in png format?
Neitehr of these CoDecs is a "native" CoDec in the Premiere sense. This should be clearly indicated by a yellow or red bar on top of the timeline. When imported into a project that uses specific optimized settings, playback of such "alien" files naturally isn't necessarily fluid. You would have to render those clips to conform them to the overall project format. Everything else is your own decision - you shouldn't think of these clips as your final working format, really just as a way to transfer pixel data from program to program with a minimum or nor loss of quality.
