Ok, I am going to be converting and joining a lot of videos tonight. I've got all the guides I had ever wanted from Afterdawn.com but I am trying to figure out what I should convert too. Is anyone current on all of the new formats, and what is best? I have heard good things about rmvb, but I am not sure if I should use it. Could someone tell me the where I could find a chart with all the video formats and their quality/size ratio?

Oh, I forgot to ask my other big question.

What do you guys suggest I use for joining together videos? I am going to need to do this for all sorts of formats.

I am really sorry, I didn't see the video editing forum. I would move it if I could!

As far as a chart listing all the formats, I've never seen one, but here Google might be your friend. As for the most popular formats, the old fashioned .mpg is still the most popular, next are the divx formats, after that .wmv, and probably the many .avi formats, then Quicktime and the Real formats.

I certainly don't know of any software that is good for joining/splitting all the different formats, and there is a lot of bad editing software out there, so be careful what you use. Good software is likely to cost good money, so you need to choose what formats you want to work with beforehand.

I like the divx formats because they offer good compression with good video quality and motion quality.

Maybe if you go to the Video Editing Forum maybe you will get more people posting than you have now
