Making Movies out of AVIs


I have gotten into making short movies and the software makes very clear AVIs, but very large. How can I get these AVIs into a format like Realplayer or mpeg with out loosing a lot of quality in the video.

Hi and welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

There are many codecs that allow you to reduce file dimensions with still good quality.

One of these is divx (not free); another is xvid (free). For what I know, realmedia is not the best codec available. mpeg have a good quality, but a lesser compression than divx or xvid

For what you want to do the best program to use is [B]Canopus ReoCoder 2 [/B] and you won’t loss any quality and you can covert it to most formats, like MPEG-1, MPEG-2, Windows Media, QuickTime, DivX. At the moment they have a special and if you buy it you also get ‘Ben Waggoner Comleate Compression” for free.

I second Coathi…the dang thing works rather well.
