    Tardis effect


    Can someone explain how and why an 800MB avi file emerges from a dvd conversion process a whopping 2.5GB ? The conversion was completely without any formatting ie, titles text, and chapters etc. Trivial I realise, just very curious. Thank you.

    Simple answer: There is a lot of overhead with DVD format that isn't present with a simple avi file.

    Your welcome. The bit rate you choose when creating the DVD will have a big effect also.
