    hello good people,

    I am in need of some assistance and hope to find some kind folks here
    who can walk a computer idiot through a coupla things

    I have 'Studio 8' software and want to take video from a DVD and
    convert it to a format editable using 'Studio 8'
    I believe it supports AVI and MPEG but I dont know which of those is
    the best quality?

    I'm hoping that someone who reads this has experience with 'Studio 8'
    and can be of kind assistance please.

    thank you,
    LP

    thanx a ton!
    I'll try that DV type 2 when I convert from the DVD...

    just to be sure tho, since you answered my other Q about DivX... are
    you recommending DV type 2 over DivX, XviD and MPEG-4 ???

    when I went to convert I found only 'DV'... I am using 'Super' by
    eRightSoft to convert... it has other settings I know nothing about as
    well... can someone enlighten me about converting using 'ffmpeg' as
    opposed to 'MEncoder' ? then, what 'framerate' should I use, 23.976 or
    29.97 ???

    thanks in advance!

    although not mutually exclusive to the definitions, DV is an editing format
    and mpeg4 is a delivery format.
    iow.. you would work with DV clips in your editor then render to mpeg4 if
    there is a purpose for that codec
