AVI Capture larger than 2GB in Adobe Premiere 6.0

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

I'd like to know if there's any chance to increase the file size of AVI files to larger than 2GB? I have WinME + P3-800MHz + 256MB RAM + Adobe Premiere 6.0 + Asus 6600TNT Deluxe with TV In/Out.

Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I think 2 Gb file size is an Operating System Limitation. NT is 4Gb.

Hope this helps.

I can't capture in Windows 2000 but what about if I capture an AVI in WinME and is larger than 2GB, do you think the clip will work in Windows 2000? I may try it out later on and see what happen. Thanks for your reply.

I thought Premier did not like big clips. Many m8s of mine couldnt figure out a way to have anything above 500 megs in Premier. Is that canged in edition 6.0?

Well, I had Premiere 5.0 before and I was able to capture AVI up to 2GB no problem.

Like said above, Windows 95-ME can only handle 2gb max. Linux on the other hand can handle much much more. More than your harddrive. If you want to you could install linux on your computer and still have windows. Let me know and I'll walk you through partitioning your harddrive and such.

I use win 98se with a 433 celeron, 256meg ram, Premeire 6.0, I have captured in excess of 3 gb file size. If you have large block access on the hard drive you capture to it. this means your harddrive has to be in fat32 format which if your using ME it probably already is. there are setting in premeire you have to adjust for it in ME. i recommend win98se.

The limiting file size in wows 98 using FAT32 is 4 gigabytes. Use windows 2000 in NTFS format which allows I think near infinite file sizes to be stored on hard drives. You'll be able to record 20 or more gigs of an hour of avi file. I've used Ulead Video Studio on Windows 2000 evev though it is not supported by the OS and it works. I believe some editing software may not work in windows 2000. For info on FAT32 and NTFS go to www.pcworld.com.
