How's come when i render full frames uncompressed the video plays back in slow motion. I want the best quality but when i play the rendered clip it's EXTREMELY LAGGY. If i can't full frame it, which codec is the best for quality? Thanks a ton.

Well do uncompressed and then use your editor or Virtual Dub and encode it as DV or whatever you want, thats what I do.

It takes alot of computer power to process full frames and sound at once. You really will have to encode it in some way to get a better idea of what it would look like in full motion.

Uncompressed is great for retaining quality, but there aren't many computers that can play is back in real-time. The information is all there, so don't worry about that - it's just that your computer can't read it off the hard disc and play it fast enough.

It'll probably be fine to work with inside your editing program, though - it's just playing on the desktop that isn't going to work too easily. You can always turn it back into DV footage. You don't want to encode it into anything else, however, as that will start to degrade the footage.
