Hello dear experts! I am a beginner, which is the copying of your camcorder to my computer or the DVD is concerned. I use this program PowerDirector 3rd With the program, I can now film copy in two ways, namely as 1. General-purpose video in AVI format 2. Video for Film Production of disc (format not specified) Now my questions: What is in simple words, because even the difference? Which format has the better quality, particularly as regards the creation of a back-up is concerned? For your answer in advance many thanks in advance. Nette Grüsse Jürgen

for a backup of the data should preferably remain unchanged. From the information does not doubt to read out what option would be better.
"General Purposes" is not a specific statement and AVI is just a container format (see synonymous Magix AVI can not read). The "production of video for movie disc" can open the question whether the original data or whether a specific (different) compression format is generated (depending on the type of disc).
