There is no preset for Lagarith, you make it yourself.
Go to Microsoft Avi, set codec to Lagarith.
Unlock chain icon and set width and height accordantly.
Same goes for framerate, fields and aspect.
Save as preset.
Thank you very much.....I did not know to go to Microsoft AVI.....
In your experience, how good is this for mastering.....I am using a panasonic ag - hmc 40 that captures at about a 18-23 bit rate.....Is that the bit rate i should try to ouput at? I never know where to set the bit rate to obtain the best quality without overdoing it.
On the PC I'd consider DNxHD on the Mac I use ProRes, but may eventually switch to DNxHD. Here's a workflow for ProRes off the Adobe blog site. You could use the concept to set up other workflows by created your own presets. I found it very helpful.

Lagarith, (unlike either ProRes or DNxHD) is a lossless codec. Which means you can't set the bitrate. It'll use what it needs to create the file.
