The native Matrox DV codec is used when you capture from a video source. However, you can't use this format for replay on other systems. Whilst working on a project, you always have to stick to the native Matrox format. After finishing, you can export your movie into any other format, such as MPEG-2 or even MPEG-4. You will find further details about conversion later in this article.
