      I’m planning to have my old 1960’s cine film transferred by But my question is what is the best format to go for, should I stick with DVD or go for the popular MP4 for archiving?

      I would have it transferred to AVI as this will have the least compression. Both DVD’s MP2 format and MP4 are highly compressed, the latter somewhat better than the former. Edit in AVI, then render to MP2 or MP4 for archiving. It you’re not familiar with it a free utility called Hand Brake does an excellent job with MP4.

      Hi Jack, thanks for your response, I went for AVI as suggested as a master file. Video did a great job I now have quite a few hours to edit so I can prob kiss goodbye to my social life for a while.
