Hi, I'm a longtime MacRumors reader, but new to digital video. I've spent most of a day reading up on my question before posting this. I've imported several hours of footage from my Sony HDR-HC7 into iMovie '08. A friend is going to edit that footage using Adobe Premiere on Windows 7. We're not in the same country, so I hope to give him the footage via FTP or by shipping a HDD, rather than shipping the original MiniDV tapes. I understand that the .mov files in my iMovie Events folder are Apple Intermediate Codec, and that AP will never be able to read those, correct? So what are the best settings or the best workflow for providing him with the best possible quality for editing? I've tried exporting using Quicktime from iMovie using a bunch of different settings, and they all look about the same in MPEG Streamclip - not bad, but slightly lower quality than the original iMovie Event. I'm worried that any degradation now will be amplified later. Best of the bunch was probably using DVCPRO50 - NTSC, with Quality set as "Best". This discussion very nearly mirrors my own, and the final poster seems to know what he's talking about: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/774966 The only hitch is that my version of MPEG Streamclip doesn't offer the "Avid DNxHD Codec" he recommends. Thanks in advance for any advice!
