I have a number of CD's containing AVI edited clips taken from VHS tapes. I want to convert these to digital so that I can make a DVD of the finished project. I have made a trial conversion of some of the clips but what worries me is the vast difference in file size. Avi = 10.8 mb , Mpeg =1.63 mb, identical clips. Is this just due to compression or is some information being left out that could make a vast difference in the quality of the final product. TIA Jaydee
