Well, I understand about them working with the software, but MPG does not edit well or even sometimes at all. But that is the format which HDD’s and Flash drive use to compress and store the video files.
I was wondering if, since the capacities for each of these is getting so large, why can they not change the capture format to the same as is used with MiniDV tape?
1 Tape = about 12 GB of raw video
With the HDD’s out now, you could record 2-3 hours of raw video (equivalant to MiniDV). Why don’t the change that? Are they changing it?Is there a better format being used that has the editor in mind and not the home (point-and-shoot straight to DVD) user.
