How do I get around the 4GB AVI problem?
on Oct 16, 2004 at 3:05:12 pm

I'm editing a home video in Premiere 6 thats gonna be on for around 25 mins. I need to export the movie to AVI and the convert to MPEG-2 for DVD burning. I'm just wondering how I get around exporting such a long movie, given that WindowsXP wont let you have a file larger than 4 gig.

Could I export the movie in chunks and recombine them into a single MPEG-2 file? If so, how? I tried doing it in TMPGEnc but it didnt work.

Please let me know if you cab help, I'm really stuck!

Format your hard drive in NTFS format, not FAT32. The 4GB limit is a function of the FAT drive format. NTFS does not have this limit.

Fortunately, you can convert your drives without losing any files. You can either use a utility like Partition Magic or convert them directly from within Windows XP.

<*>Open a command prompt window by clicking "Start", "Run", and then entering "CMD" and Enter.<*>Type "CONVERT X: /FS:NTFS" and Enter, where X is the drive letter to convert


That's it.
