    Hi! This might have a simple ezplanation but I'm a little confused. I had
    some video in .avi format which I wanted to burn to DVD. Because there was
    so much of it when I finished editing, I saved the project as two files and
    coverted each file to MPEG 2. Both files ended up being over 6 gigs and were
    therefore too large to burn onto one DVD each. So, I decided to splice the
    MPEG 2 files back together, divide the result into 3 files instead of 2 and
    burn them onto 3 separate DVDs. I used ShowBiz to do the splice and chose
    the option to save the file as an MPEG 2. After splicing the 2 files back
    together and saving the rejoined file, I checked the total file size. To my
    surprise, it is just under 3 gigs! How can that be? I've reviewed portions
    of the file and it appears fine. I don't understand though how the 1 joined
    file ended up being less than 25% as large as the two files that I used to
    make it. Can someone please explain how/why this happened? Thanks!

    Joe
