VCD format allows for one minute of video per minute on the CD, so an 80 minute CD-R will only hold 80 minutes of video. This is why your AVIs won't fit on one CD when converted. VCD uses a low bitrate and this low bit rate has problems with fast motion video. You will see blocks when something in the video is too fast. Nero's encoder is terrible and I don't recommend using it. You can improve your quality by using TMPGenc (http://www.tmpgenc.net) and using the advance Noise Reduction feature, but it will increase encoding time by a lot to use this advanced feature. If you don't have a spare PC you can use to encode, you can try using TMPGenc without this advanced setting and see what you think. Guides to converting to VCD are available at http://www.dvdrhelp.com.
