How to convert MPG2 into MPG1 or AVI..

Hi Guys.

I have a sourcefile in mpg2 format but my videoeditor (Premiere 6.0) only import mpg1 & avi files. How can I convert my current source file into a appropriate format?

Thanks,

Let me also add that I've tried LEAD Converter v1 thats supposed to be able to convert but get an error "Cant render stream".

The source play's fine in MediaPlayer7.2 though but at 460MB its a bit big for sharing

Thereís a small utility called eXstream that can be found at www.download.com, which converts mpeg to avi. Itís free so must be worth a try.

Don't expect quality images as the mpeg format is compressed. You will also need at least 30gig free to convert 460MB, unless you convert in stages.

RArch - thanks for the tip! It appear to work pretty good and I got a few sequenses converted. (split every 600frames) I got the LEAD converter of www.downloads.com but missed the eXstream utility.

Again - thank you!

Go to http://www.vcdhelp.com & your questions will be answered.

(Use TMPGenc & encode your MPG2 into an MPG1)
