Why is a 'joined' movie much larger than the sum of the individual clips?

    I have used both Nero and Super Movie Joiner to join a bunch of movie
    clips into a single movie and have noticed this with both. The whole
    is much greater than the sum of the parts. Can someone explain why?

  2. No.

    Unless it's a matter of file formats and the codec used. If you're
    outputting .avi files they will generally be 6-8 times the size of the
    orginal .vob files (which usually use the MPEG2 codec).
