So recently my windows laptop died, and i am now in the process of transitioning from editing with sony vegas on windows to editing with premiere/after effects cs5 on a macbook :<
My main question is - which video format is best for editing on a mac with cs5? In the past i converted absolutely everything to lagarith avi files, but somehow i feel like there should be a better option now that i've upgraded?
Also - is everything in the AMVapp compatible with a mac? (mainly vdub/avisynth)
At the moment, i have some footage in the mkv format i'd like to use... should i be throwing this in avisynth and making huge lagariths straight away?
