how to edit an AVI

  Jane doe 11:30 24 Feb 2003

Hi there. Can anyone advise me how to cut down a corporate AVI file please. This was sent and D/L over the weekend and I need to put it on a cd to give to people. Never done this before. When I tried to burn a first one in Nero it just comes up, the file is too large to fit on the media. Please insert a larger media.' then it ejects. The discs we have are 80 min 700 meg. The file says 738 meg. So I want to cut off the twirling logo thing at the front so it will fit on a CD. Can anyone help?

I think VirtualDub will do what you want: click here to trim an avi or mpeg file.

click here for a free trial of FX video splitter, or click here for Zwei Stein video editor.

I've never used it but doesn't Windows Movie Maker (free with XP) do that sort of thing?

Thanks all. I have D/L virtual dub but cant work out how to use it yet. It plays the file but cant see how to cut front bit off, but Ive never done this before. Ill keep trying. Im also in process of D/L Zwein Stein. Jane

This guide should help click here

How long is the video (in mins)? You might be able to reduce the file size by re-encoding to MPEG. This can easily be done with tmpgenc (click here)

Also i think there's an option on Nero to convert avi to mpeg for vcd (thus reducing file size).

Cantillion I managed it using the guide you sent me thanks all. This vid stuff looks complicated there must be an easy to understand guide somewhere. ie whats mpeg and avi mean? Thanks again, Jane
