I've been playing around with an analogue camcorder, putting some footage onto CD (not as a SVCD or anything. The problem is I used Ulead Videostudio to put it all together as an MPEG. The resulting file is about 1.2gb.
I want to fit it onto a CD so I was thinking about using DivX or Xvid to do this. I have a trial version of Adobe Premier I was trying out, but it won't let MPEGS be loaded in, only AVI files. Is there another way of doing it with the software I have? I think I'd rather code it into DivX as this is more stable compared to XVid.
Mpeg are compressed avi's to various degrees. I would suspect your rendered file is mpeg2 (?) which is usually svcd quality. You can render to mpeg1 (vcd) which will compress further and it will probably be good enough quality. Or you can split and put onto 2 cd's.
