I just started using alamDV and absolutely love it. I'm wondering though what is the best settings for the absolute best quality output video. Codec and setting. so far i've been using the quictime/video/best function at 30fps and seems to be doing fairly well, I edit on Vegas and i've been losing some color between transfering sometimes. I shoot on a GL2 so color is perfect at first but when i output from alam, I seem to lose luster, I look at all the videos posted in the cinema and mine are dull in color compared to theirs, now i'm not doing any color correction bit alam seems to be degrating the colors, any clue???, thanks a tone

if u dont want to lose any color, use this render "uncompressed: full frames"

I read somewhere that the "Animation" codec in Quicktime loses very little video information. I always use that when I export between versions of videos. I use the "Video" codec if I just want to see a clip on my computer to see how the effects look.

The Animation codec is lossless, which means you lose no information when it compresses. The resulting files are quite large though. Of course, most people recommend using Uncompressed for best quality, which results in even bigger files. If you want smaller files than uncompressed gives you, without quality loss, Animation codec is a good option.
