Videowave, Extremely Large File Sizes

Question

Glad I found this forum. Here is my dillema. I have 5 .MOV files,shot by iphone, about 100-120MB each that I'm trying to join rotate and convert them to AVI using Videowave. I'm not adding any fancy transition effects background music or overlays. Yet the resulting AVI file is almost 3Gigs. Is there any way to make Videowave produce an AVI file that more closely resembles the original file size of 500-600MB?

A straight answer is NO.

A mov format is very compressed. A DV- AVI file is not. Therefore the difference in file size.

There are different types of AVI files

You can use Video Copy and Convert to create DixV type video files. These are also highly compressed but if you want to play them on a DVD player, then the player must be capable of playing DivX files. I do not know how large the files will be but they should be small. Video Wave does not output to DivX. I don't know if Video Copy and Convert will rotate the files.

How long (time) are the AVI files?

What do you plan on doing with them?

Sknis Thanks. Those are just home videos shot with an iphone. I was planning on uploading them to facebook and sharing with some friends, so 2.5G is a bit too large to do any of that. The total length combined of those 5 files is about 6 minutes. Is there any other software or file format that will let me preserve the original file compression while allowing to rotate the frame? I'm slightly confused by all this since a 90minute movie is usually 2.5 4Gig.

Add them to Video Wave and rotate them. Select to "Output". You have an option to export them directly to You Tube or Share on Face Book.

 

There is no need to output to another format; VideoWave will select the proper format.
