You need to encode it to a compressed format, at the moment the avi is uncompressed and thats why its huge. It's like the difference between the size of a bmp image and a jpeg.

http://www.videohelp.com/avi2divx.htm Is a site with some good guides, or try a search on the Il2 Movie Makers Forum (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/ubb.x?a=frm&s=400102&f=65710358).

Good Luck - Inadaze

I use virtual dub, if you google it you should be able to download it for free.

Virtual dub is good because it will you to use what ever codex (DIVX, AVI,mpeg etc) you already have install on you system to compress it.

You can do some nice effects with it as well, colour changes,cropping adding/removing sound etc.

EDIT: actually if you look here there is a excellent tutorial with link to the software needed

Go to the Movie Maker's Forum here, and check out the sticky threads. There should be something there to help you out. If not, post this topic in there, and you'll get some very qualified guys answering your questions.
