I recently sent some 8 mm and 16 MM film to be digitized at CINE POST based on the recommendations in this Forum.

I have a Choice to have the files as AVI or MOV.

I initially choose MOV but thought I would get some input from this forum ion pros and cons of this choice. I can still change

AVI and MOV are just containers. What is the actual format/codec?
That's what matters.
