    CS5: Export HDV 720p30 Timeline to HDV MPG File

    Ed Edited It Productions Level 1



      Hopefully a simple question. I want to export my HDV 720p30 timeline to a file without introducing any additional compression (or very minimal). In searching for a solution, I read that you can connect an HDV deck, select output to tape, let the sequence render, and then search for a MPG file in the cache that's essentially the rendered sequence's HDV MPG file. Since I don't have an HDV deck anymore, is there an easier way? Should I just export MPG with the highest quality settings? What specifically should I choose? Ideally, I'd like to be able to just drag this 'edited master sequence'' back into the timeline as a 'raw' HDV 720p30 source file down the road. Thanks in advance.
