I tend to leave my cam running between shots and edit out later (using premier pro 1.5). However, when capturing from the cam this leaves me with very large avi files much of which is not used.
At present I edit by importing clips to the left hand monitor window, set in and out points and drag to the timeline.
But this leaves the source avi file intact.
So - is it possible to permanently cut frames from the avi files leaving them smaller?
