What were the full specs. of the Source Material, and what were the full specs. of the output material?
Most likely, the output was not as heavily compressed, as the original, and had a much higher Bit-Rate. Without the full specs., we cannot tell.
Good luck, and TIA,
I deleted the original ripped video from my drive (that particular song anyway), but I was looking at some other songs I ripped and it says this for Crazy Train:
Total Bitrate 1939
Data Rate 1811
For Bark At The Moon (the original video example I deleted) it says:
Total Bitrate 30312
Data Rate 28776
I thought .AVI were supposed to already be uncompressed? So is the reason my output file so large compared to the original (even though we are actually comparing two different songs, I think we can do it) is because the original was compressed and the output file is not?
Can I change some settings in Premiere Elements and still keep it an .AVI?
