Thumbs up on that post, I remember an "argument" some time ago where someone would say editing with .mp3 instead of .wav is equivalent to using .xvid instead of lagarith, where I said it's nothing like that and editing with .mp3 gives absolutely no problems (other than lower quality) but couldn't justify it.

Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if I said that some time ago.
Looked more into mp3 compression this time

Couldn't say more than agreeing.

Oops, sorry for lifting this thread up from its "slumber". Wanted to reply a long time ago, but totally forgot about it.

Anyways I still got a couple of MP4 files in tow. I know I should look for DVD sources, but I couldn't afford buying tons of anime episodes (OK, maybe Bleach can do since there's a shop selling cheap somewhere...).

I'm not about to rant about the above paragraph now, but I just want to ask: how good is lagarith compared to huffyuv codecs? & for both, what's a good file extension (e.g. AVI) I can convert the MP4 files into?

Sadly I can't make any purchases online. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Lagarith and Huffyuv are the same when it comes to video quality.
Lagarith takes a little less space
Huffyuv is easier (for your computer) to play back

Lagarith plays really nicely with vegas, and as long as your computer isn't something old from...say around 2000 or so, you shouldn't notice any difference between playing a huffy and a lagarith, so I'd go with lagarith.

.avi is your best bet as far as containers go (any modern NLE, like vegas, can import .avi)

Thanks Karido for the answer. I'll see how things go with the conversion.

Looking into eRightSoft's SUPER Converter right now.

I'd recommend AviSynth + Virtualdub
