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.
