My goal is to transfer my camcorder's DV tape footage to my computer, edit it, then burn it to DVD while keeping max quality all the way but not going to crazy lengths to do so.
Does it matter what program I use to "capture" (or "transfer" as I learned from digitalfaq) the DV footage to my PC to then edit & author later?
Currently I use Pinnacle 12 to "capture" the footage to AVI and it results in around 13gb per hour. I know VirtualDub does capture to AVI, but is there any difference if it's just a "transfer" of footage in my case?

Virtualdub is a different story. It decodes DV into RGB or Y,Cr,Cb using a DV codec (e.g. Cedodica DV codec ).
That is lossy.Recommends: Kiva.org - Loans that change lives.
Thanks. That takes care of that.
