Good tool to Convert Raw AVI files from a DV capture to .mov files?

    Does anyone know of a good conversion tool with a common Codec that
    can be played in quicktime. I tried quicktime pro as another post
    suggest, but it does not seem to give any options to control the
    compression ratios etc. What application would you suggest. (I have
    premiere 1.5 pro, but that output to .mov sucks really bad and takes
    FOREVER to render). I have seen the job that DivX does on DVD and I
    am quite impressed, is there a codec for quicktime files that can
    achieve this amazing compression ratio vs. quality.

    Thanks in advance.

    (p.s. I have H.264 in Premiere, but it SUCKS really bad too)

    H.264 comes in many flavors.

    What is the target for these video files? Do you want something
    for playback on your cell-phone or on a HD Widescreen display?
    Or somewhere in between?

    Then you should consider an Encoder program. (Unless it's for
    the cell-phone, then one of those "Converter" programs would be
    good enough.)
