Is there anyway to get better quality from the export. I'm getting it back and forth from alamdv2 to my editor, but when I get it back on the editor the quality sucks compared to the original footage. I know there will be some lose of quality, but I didn't think it would be this much. It looks like a really bad AVI, when I need (at least) Mpeg 2 quality. Can anyone help me out or giving a point in the right direction. Thanks

The problem is that you are rendering out compressed files from ADV2, in your codec setting (in Render Options) make sure you are selecting to render out uncompressed or component video. wink

I hope thay helps.

Thanks, I'll try it. I think I was messing around with it and it didn't look as good as what I've got, but I'll try it again anyways.
Thanks

You shouldn't lose any discernible quality. Be sure to render uncompressed or with your DV codec. Other codecs are generally designed for high compression (for uploading to the internet, for example), so will lose lots of quality.
