Hi, if you are using DV, then go for avi format first, grab your digital video as it is in avi, you can find the best quality, after that if you want vcd or dvd you can convert that avi to mpeg1 or mpeg2 (mpeg2 is for good quality in mpeg1 format quality will no be the same as per your DV) if you need any further assistance feel free to contact me
