I have a bunch of AVI files containing captured DV footage (Microsoft DV, as that is what is captured through Adobe Premiere on Windows). These now need to be converted to Quicktime DV to work with some other software package. When I Export as Quicktime and select DV25 as codec (in Adobe Media Encoder) the filesize remains almost the same (not surprising because it is the same bitrate as the source), but what exactly happens during the export?
Is the raw DV footage simply extracted from the AVI container and put into a MOV container (meaning only copying of data with no loss in quality)? Or is the video transcoded from Microsoft DV to Quicktime DV (meaning there will be a slight loss in quality)?
If the latter, how can I losslessy extract the DV footage from an AVI container and put into a MOV container?
