I want to join many dv movie files i have captured from Premiere, to make them all one dv file. How can this be done and is it lossless?

This is what video edit software does, joins small segments together to make on large one. It can be lossless or not.

DV is an interesting format because there is not between frame compression so generally it can be cut and spliced with no loss.

You can edit them together using premiere, and then export them all as one file.

Be sure to match the settings on your export to match the settings of your clip/timeline.

No gain if you capture them at a DV codec, then export them as uncompressed.. does nothing but suck up hard drive space.
