I have a sequence in Premiere Pro 1.5 and I want to File > Export > Movie.
I want to expot > movie to a hard drive. I want the original fullest quality as my miniDV tapes. I am assuming no compression.
What I am wanting to do is archive all my miniDV tapes to a hard drive for backup.
The only editing I will do is cut some scenes and then add a black video at the beginning of the video which includes title and date since videos don't come with EXIF files like digital photos.
What settings do I use to get the highest quality video?:
- In General, do I choose AVI or DV AVI? My video is from a Canon miniDV video camera.
For DV AVI:
- In Video, do I leave the "limit data rate to" checked or unchecked? Also in Video, do I leave "Recompress"checked or unchecked?
- Under keyframes and rendering, do I use lower field first, upper field first, or no fields (progressive)?
- Under Video, I get to choose a compressor. There is a list of compressor and then there is "none". Do I choose a compressor or do I choose "none"?

I am going to edit the original post now so that the situation deals with exporting to hard drive to archive tapes instead of making a DVD.
Great questions, but misunderstood, then ignored. I'm here because I'm still using the old PP 1.5 and only often enough that I forget details. I can answer these questions though (might need some help with the fields question):
if what you are asking is how to copy your minidv tapes to a hard drive without any change you don't use adobe pp at all. windv is the tool for the job. hook up your cam using your firewire connection and set windv to copy the tape to whatever folder on a hard drive you want. you can either have it as 1 long video or have windv cut it up on time discontinuities into smaller chunks.--
