I was capturing a couple of VHS’s onto Adobe Premiere Pro CS3 the other day (this being my first time ever doing this, by the way), and when I finally went to make an AVI of each movie (both clocking in at around 80-90 mins apiece), they came out to be around 17 - 18GB respectively!
Now I know for a fact that this isn’t right, since most movies of this length are only around 1-2GB - or less!
I don’t really understand video compression that well, and when I try to make a copy of the movie, the duration comes out to somewhere around 30-40 hours.
As a sidenote, I use XP. If that helps.
