Can I edit the video files on the playable DVD created from my movie film transfer?
• A DVD Video can be edited with the correct tools (Pinnacle 12 (http://www.pinnaclesys.com) is one example. However, please be advised DVD Video is in MPEG2 format; a file format which is a very lossy compression format. If you want a good master file to edit from, you should order MJPEG, MPEG4, or AVI on a hard drive to produce the highest quality video. You may want to consider getting a copy on a playable DVD in addition to the file format you choose to edit from. This way you can archive the film and have a format you can edit. By ordering a playable DVD up front, you can have instant gratification and enjoy watching your old movies the day your order arrives. If you want to do this, choose the DVD or Blu-Ray in the order form ‘wizard’ and then you can add the editable file format on the order form.
