    Default Converting .asf/.wmv to .avi ?

    Just wondering if this can be done?

    VirtualDub says that Microsoft own the patent on the .asf format therefore no support is included in the program.

    I've tried importing this .wmv file into premiere but it seems to me to have the same characteristics as mpeg files, eg. jumpy playback.

    I want to be able to edit a .wmv, either by conversion in a 3rd party program or a within premiere.

    Any comments would be super.

    Thanks in advance guys

    Tried it, liked it, bought it. Does exactly what the name suggests.

    To further add to that, I've successfully converted ASF to AVI using that encoder and WMV to AVI using TMPGenc Xpress.

    or you know you could always just goodle virtualdub 1.3. ASF support was in that version.
    freeformvideo.com: 3D Animated Menu\'s Transitions, Backgrounds or just about anything 3d all Animated.

    Th actual version with ASF support is extremely hard to come by. There is a widely distributed version that is labelled as 1.3c, which I can confirm does NOT support ASF.
