I use uncompressed for most work I do because the only other thing that works for me is Cinepak which stinks. Alam DV3 will support alot more codecs so I am waiting eagerly wink .

heres wat it said

THE MOVIE YOU ARE TRYING TO IMPORT USES A CODEC THAT DOES NOT SUPPORT VIDEO FOR WINDOWS (PROBABLY A MICROSOFT DV CODEC). VISIT THE ALAMDV2 SUPPORT AND FAQS FORUM FOR MORE INFO ON WHERE YOU CAN DOWNLOAD A BETTER DV CODEC

The Matrox DV codec works with Alamdv. Also, Huffuv is a lossless compressed codec, so it works like uncompressed except with much smaller filesizes.
