Digital Feature Finishing : LUSENET : Editing DV Films : One Thread

I'll start work on a Mini-DV Feature that will be onlined then transfered to film. I do have a few questions:

1.) Can Mini-DV be transferred digitally into DVCAM via firewire? If not, which is the best process to dub Mini-DV masters into DVCAM? Can the non-smpte "timecode" from Mini-DV be transfered into DVCAM so as to match it?

2.) Which format should I give the lab for the blow-up (Mini-DV, Digi Beta, etc).

3.) Can a high end online system (Symphony, Smoke, etc) be used for the online with mini-dv tapes and an EDL from Final Cut Pro v2.0?

4.) Any other tips, literature, etc?
