How Good SONY Vaio : LUSENET : Editing DV Films : One Thread

Is the video capture card in Sony Vaio capable of producing a good video with VX1000? Will it output MPEG1 or 2 without rendering ? How about AVI...does it have to be rendered? Quicktime?

I have a VAIO 302DS got it at for $999.00. It works great for editing with my TRV900. The only problem is I can't play from the timeline in Premiere. It comes with Premiere 4.2LE and can be upgraded to 5.1 for $199. I wish someone would write a print to video plug-in for the Sony. Other than that it's very stable. It does transcode to MPEG-1 faster than other encoders. Also sony's codec plays very nicely and fluent. Id love it even more if someone would write a print to DV plug in for it. Good luck:-)
