Okay, here is the issue. I am using Screenblast (Sony) to create movies from my digital camcorder. The problem is that when I capture video, I only use portions of the captured files in the final production. However, there is no option (or at least I haven't found one) to splice that scene out of the original AVI file so that only the scene I am using is saved back to the hard drive as the AVI file (I want to do this of course, so I can save space on the hard drive by getting rid of video I'm not using in the final production). I tried first editing the files in TEMPGenc 3.0 Express to pair down the scenes I wanted and then to encode it in a separate AVI file, but the problem there if I use the "Uncompressed" VIdeo Option, the file is much larger. I only have 3 choices for compression: "Cinepak Codec by Radius" (far too slow), "Microsoft Video 1" (makes the file bigger by about 70 percent), Microsoft Windows Media Video 9 (Reduces file size, but the quality is poor). Using TEMPGenc would be a suitable option IF I could use a compression codec that was the same as the AVI I am capturing from my camcorder. Are there any other options/programs? What Codec or settings to I used in TEMPGenc 3.0 to get the same compression and file size for the outputted AVI file? The easiest would be a program where you could just cut out scenes and save the AVI file without encoding it, but I am sure that's not possible or is it?
