Size after cutting 700mb file is 2.5Gb

Hi Gurus,

I do not know if this is the right place...MOds please redirect if I am at wrong part of forum.

I have just installed Cyberlink Power Director 7 on Vista.
But when I use it to cut/trim a part of a 700MB .avi movie, the newly generated clip (which is of 2 minutes) is of 2.5 Gb size.

Where am I going wrong??

Please help !!

  1. the codes is doing this, you will have to compress the video, not sure how, its been ages since ive done any video work
  2. 2.5 GB does seem a bit much for 2 minutes, but it depends on quality and amount of compression in the original file.
    When you edit a AVI file in Power Director you are decompressing the original and the output is going to be much larger then the original, untill it's compressed down again.
    I have a 1,431,883 KB AVI which when converted to mpg is 7.19 GB=2hours 21minutes. It's not a HD file.
