Hello,
I have recently edited some movie in Edius 4.6. I then saved it as avi lossless and opened it with vision lab. I saw some loss in quality and decided to render the movie as an avi to see if the result had bad quality. It turned out worst. I would like to not lose any quality through the transition between programs. What is the best settings to save it out of Edius and what would be the best file extension to save it out of vision lab. It is hd footage. Thanks.

Importing the video to VisionLab will not cause a drop in quality. There are a couple of things to check:

1. Have you checked the video that you exported from Edius before importing it to VisionLab? Did Edius export it correctly?

2. What canvas display quality are you using in VisionLab Studio? This does not affect output, but it will affect the quality of the on-screen display while you're working in the program. You can change the quality from the Canvas menu.

When rendering out of VisionLab, what compression settings did you use?

I tend to use the Quicktime format with the Animation codec throughout post-production.
