Here are the steps I typically do, each of which creates a new intermediate
1. Capture from Component video or HDMI.
2. Inverse telecine or de-inetrlace, and simultaenously compress to ffvhuff.
3. Edit out commercials and other crap using ffmpeg and the 'Select' video filter.
4. Encode with an mpeg 4 codec (like libx264).
Currently all files are AVI, but I don't really care what the intermediate
file formats are. What would be a better choice for the intermediate
file formats? I want the edit step to be frame-exact, and I also want the
format that runs the fastest as well. Are some formats faster than others?
Also, what's a good choice for the final output format? This should
be fairly portable across machines, and future-proof. However, I do
most of my work on Linux machine.
