You can capture to mpg format but that means the video will be compressed. This in turn makes it harder to edit.

Why are you so worried about file size?

 

I just think 17.9GB is a bit large to store when you have several tapes to convert. I'll have to plan a little different. My thinking was about 700mbs gets a full length movie, you can imagine my surprise when I saw 17.9 gigs rack up with about 1.5 hours.

V2D Capture Size:

DV = 12.8 GB/Hr

DV HQ = 3.45 GB/Hr

DV SP = 1.77 GB/Hr

DV LP = .081 GB/Hr

VCD = 0.561 GB/Hr

 

The DV and the DV HQ are the only ones worth using.

 

You also need to do some test burns (DVD RW) before commiting a lot of time only to trash it.

A 700MB file for a full length movie means that it is highly compressed (propably to a DivX avi format). About 17GB GB for a 1.5 hour video in avi format (best quality) is normal and should not be a surprise.
