Cool Mov to AVi - which codec ?

Actually I am converting some quicktime trailers available form the apple site, to avi format. Since I am cropping & resizing them using the divx 6.2 codec, so i wanted to know which codec I should b using to produce the best quality avi. I believe divx is the one in terms of lossless quality. But is there any other codec? I dont care about speed & file size. I care about only the quality. so any suggestions people ?

Please use anonymez's guide from the link below

I would use XivD instead of DivX for better quality under AVI format. IMHO, I prefer MP4 x264 for great quality with smaller filesize

Regards

nope, good for lossy, and still a bit behind xvid. if you're after lossless, try MSU or huffyuv

then keep it as mov. why do you wish to encode at all? if you're after the avi/mp4 container for some reason, it can be done without quality loss

@ben: that guide needed a little fixing, here's the updated one http://forum.digital-digest.com/showthread.php?t=65488

well guys I have checked the MSU codec but I was wondering how would I resize the mov trailers using TMPGEnc 3.0 Xpress & MSU codec. The divx codec had the "square pixel" resize method which allowd me to crop the trailer accurately but the Msu codec doesn't possess any such capability. This means i will have to encode the 1st avi output again in tmpgenc xpress to resize it using tmpgenc's square pixel resize method. Damn! This is gonna b really tedious. any suggestions for accurate cropping in 1 step only ??

Well I dont like to watch those trailers with black bars around them. I like to watch them fullscreen & since avi format is the only way of maintaining almost lossless quality even after resizing, dats why encode them.

There i hav answered ur question. Now can any1 pls tell me how i can crop those mov trailers in avi format ?
