  1. 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?
    Can someone tell me how to make the export of the joined files cause i seem to be lost in Premiere CS5 settings!

  2. VirtualDub, lossless:

    File -> Open Video File
    File -> Append Avi Segment (as many times as necessary, sequentially numbered segments will auto append)
    Video -> Direct Stream Copy
    File -> Save as AVI

    Add the clips to a timeline that matches the frame rate and aspect ratio of the clips, and export them as DV. No reencoding necessary. This is how Premiere works.

    You export as DV-PAL or DV-NTSC to match the frame rate, raster size and aspect ratio of your source. Your output will be un-reencoded DV avi files.

  16. I did the joining, but the outcoming file was a little sharper than the original. Is that right? Is it some setting i must tune so that it doesnt make it sharper without my consent?

  17. What you select in Quicktime preset?
    Can you post original and render sample jpg?

    You are probably previewing at less than full resolution when you are editing. You may be the first poster on this site to complain that your output is better than you hoped.

    No, it's that silly Quicktime thing with DV where it sometimes defaults to viewing/saving at 1/2 quality. Always, always, always make sure that "Use Maximum Render Quality" is checked.

    <RANT>It's 2014, why can't/won't Apple get Quicktime's SHIT TOGETHER!!!?? DAR/PAR aperture nonsense, Gamma shift nonsense, 16bit dithered to 8bit, no true end-to-end 64bit codecs/architecture, DV "quality" choices, chroma upsampling problems, problems with VBR audio, old apple-centric nomenclature, slow loads/renders, not-fully-cross-platform WRT features/codecs, no MPEG4-ASP, MKV?, codecs for AVI?.....It's no wonder some people hate it.</RANT>

    The lower image has been blend deinterlaced, the upper not. You need to figure out whether the problem is in the video files themselves or the way you are viewing or exporting images.

    The lower image is the original that was captured first. The upper is after the joining!

    If you're viewing in Quicktime. Go to Window/Show Movie Properties Select the Video Track, choose the Visual Settings tab, and be sure High Quality is checked in the lower right.

  25. If you converting for viewing purpose
    better convert to H264 (MP4)
    benefit is smaller size files and playable on other devices like TV, tablets, DVD players...

    That does NOT address the need the OP had:
    I want to join many dv movie files i have captured from Premiere, to make them all one dv file
    @zoranb, Go back through this post, ignoring most posts from roma_turok (who, while he has at times good things to say, is way off multiple times on this thread - sorry roma) and pay attention to everything smrpix has said, and you should be fine.

    But he's not "converting", he's "combining".
    And for quality reasons, he should combine them as DV. Then, and only then, should he convert a copy to h264, etc. for portable viewing purposes.
