I am trying to use virtualdub. I am a video about 5 gb in avi format. I am trying to resize the video to compensate somewhat for overscanning. So I downloaded virtualdub and under the filters added resize and made the new video size 600x450 and then had a black border up to 640x480. I figure this way it would illiminated any overscanning below 7% approximately. When I do then save the avi file using "direct stream copy" the file size is slightly larger but no larger than 6gb. However, it appears that the filter had no effect.
Then I do not use the "direct stream copy" the estimated file size is 40gb. I looked at the compress option but no option jumped out at me to choose.
So here is the question: How do I apply the filter and not end up with a large file size? I would like to keep the file in avi format if possible. And again I am new to this program so a slight explination on how would be greatly appreciated.
