I have a Canon DV camera, and I have been editing our home movies for quite some time (using a IEEE wire etc.) The problem is that when I transfer movies from my DV tapes into AVI format, the come out HUGE. ie. a 30 min clip is about 20 GB… I doubt this is normal cus the movies I download are less than a gig for 2 hours +.
This huge size makes it really hard to mange, store, edit and transfer them to DVD. It also putting a big strain on my hard drive (70 GB :o ). Does anyone know how to make this movies amy smaller!?!
