I have Final Cut and I want to start pulling video from my miniDV cam. There's so many video compressions out there I'm not sure which is the best to use for storing my video clips. I know if I plan on editing later I shouldn't use any compression, but I'm talking about my final end clips for use other places. I also want to learn about encoding videos to put on my iPod. What is the best program to encode video for it? I currently only have an iPod video, but I will be getting an iPhone and maybe a future iPod Touch. I'm assuming I would be encoding differently depending on the size screen the iPod has. I'd like to be able to hook the iPod up to a TV and watch the videos there. I'm not sure if that means different encoding or not.
