Three in general use are, (lossless, ie big files)

1) HuffYUV
2) UT_Video
3) MagicYUV

Use search.

EDIT: For final encode to lossy (small files), best use Avisynth for editing, and any of the MP4 AVC encoders
in the "MP4-Encoder GUIs" forum. (MeGUI is popular, but Handbrake may be better option for newbies)
I sometimes post sober.

Methinks you have stumbled into a pit of vipers here, BoobieNoobie. Nerdy vipers. We will debate the "best" (oops, rule 12) codec to use until you beg for mercy and are forced to chew off your own leg to escape.

You probably want a simple answer. Don't expect one here, ever.
StainlessS' response was excellent advice for creating a lossless copy. Excellent quality, very large file size.

I will suggest something else, assuming you want a smaller file with very good quality.
I fully expect a sandstorm to erupt in response.
Are you ready?
* codec: x264vfw
* "rate control" = "CRF"
* "ratefactor" = "19"
* "output" section: enable "virtualdub hack"
* Save as AVI

Oh, and rule 6 (we don't talk about no downloads)
