so it would seem.

avi's are so awkward though i find they take any excuse to screw up.

just curious what the circumstances are that you would need to convert to avi anyhoo

A watermark is a little logo or a name on top of the video. It is normally transcuscent (sp?) and is sometimes a hindrance. It's just annoying when you see that watermark and show that to your friends. Just, annoying.

I hear Dr. Divx (http://www.divx.com/divx/drdivx/) can do it. I don't know if it leaves a watermark or not.


You may have to go through this process though:

1) Convert MOV to MPEG using TMpgEnc Express v3.0 (http://www.tmpgenc.net/e_main.html) at max H&V res
2) Convert MPEG using Dr. Divx (http://www.divx.com/divx/drdivx/)
Or instead of using Dr. Divx, use Virtual Dub (http://www.virtualdub.org/) using a 3 pass encoding of MPEG to DivX AVI for beter results


Heck, poke around just in TMpgEnc Express. I bet it can do it all by it's lonesome.

He may need .avi for video editing. Most video editing software do not support .mov files.

foiund some quotes

I used to use a program called RAD video tools for this. Google for it.
(some other said he thought it was spyware)
I have found an older program called Quicktime Pro 61, this will export Mov files to AVI or MPEG.

here (http://www.deskshare.com/dmc.aspx) is a 30 day trial of a convertor. Not sure about watermark, but trial is better than demo.

Rp, you know Im th man to ask about such things, you shoulve PMd me man :)

what Rhett said about TmpgEnc is true...it can output as AVI

File>Output to File>Avi :p
I have tmpgenc plus, but hopefully express is capable of doing this.

NB. You may need to download the plug in that will allow you to encode .mov within Tmpgenc

you need any linkies, let me know man :D

as I said previously, www.videohelp.com is the ULTIMATE resource for tracking down these type of answers
