Without any other third party software, what is the best way to get a captured video clip from Avid into AE apply the effects and then get it back into the timeline to DVD author, without losing quality, and preferably not taking forever?

export your footage from avid as quicktime reference, do you work and then. put your finished composition into the render que. if you have a good machine and want no loss, use the animation codec, if you want to save a little time use the dv codec, or avid dv codec or something like that. then import the .mov files back into avid.

thats what i do.... if anyone else has a smoother workflow let me know.

I just import the raw clips, do my thing, then render out using the Avid Meridien Codec...
