And what's wrong with DV? If Final Cut has de-interlacing properties, why not use them? Remember, the AMV will move fast and people may not even notice that one pixel is out of place. Not only are you taking my post the wrong way, but you are judging my method without seeing the product it produces. I'll admit that this was in the wrong forum, but I won't admit that this isn't a good idea.
Especially when people want to make videos for fun and not just for contests, this process will make it easier for them. To me, this is acceptable quality

Second, there are people who are too cheap to buy Apple MPEG-2 plug-in and use MPEG Streamclip to convert their VOB files. With this method, at least they'll still get DV.
I agree that if you have Final Cut PRO, that editing in some other codec is better than DV. But I get "acceptable" quality with DV and haven't converted all my DVDs over to ProRes yet. I do tire of the interlacing issue with DV, which is why I like ProRes. (But I have this feeling that there's going to be some comment about how ProRes is not "acceptable" enough either. Oh, whatever!) LOL
