I've been shooting and editing stuff for a long time... But just recently my harddrive is in need of some space ( i lack an external harddrive ). So i just captured a pretty hefty load of video, and i really need some way to make the .AVI files smaller ( by possibly converting them into .WMV files ). So i've heard of codecs/encoding/compression, but can someone explain to me what i would have to do, to make these ( already captured ) clips smaller?
Thanks in advance
EDIT: and by the way i use the program Adobe Premiere Pro
