    Someone has been using Pinciple studio 8 to edit a DV video.
    What format should he save it in on the hard drive so that he can copy
    the avi file to a CD disk (as it's not a big video), give it to me and
    I can load it into a video editor to create a VCD disk as Pinnacle
    Studio 8 is not the best choice for creating VCD disks. .

    I need to know of a Codec format that would result in the minimum lost
    of video quality.

    The Codec's that Pinnacle supports for AVI are:
    Cinepak
    DV Video encoder
    Intel Indeo Video interactive
    Intel Indo video R3.2
    Ligos Indo XP Video
    MicroVideo DV 100 5.2
    Pinnacle DCxx MPEG Compressor

    If the source is DV, save it to DV & transfer it in DV ... no loss in
    quality, no transcoding artifacts.

    After he has edited the project, output the video back out to DV tape, and
    bring the tape to you.

    Depending on what you meant by "not a big video", 5 minutes of DV is 1GB.,
    so you will be able to put about 3 to 4 minutes of DV AVI on a regular CD-R.
