    Problem: I have a directory with 100s of separate DV AVI files
    (captured using Scenanlyzer with scene detection). I need to
    generate a singe AVI after deleteing some unwanted clips. T
    he number of files are so large that manual "append AVI"
    with Virtual ub is not an option.
    There are some AVI joiner out there like "AVI Joiner" which choke
    when the size of the output file is multiple GB. My primary editing tool
    is Vegas Video 3.0

  2. Get a real video editor - Adobe 6.0 and you will have no problem joining the
    avi files. Be sure and format your harddrive for large files. I use Win
    XP, but as I recall, Win 98 had a problem with files larger than 2 gigs.

    Alternatively use the superior editor you already have - Vegas Rocks!
    You should be ale to open Vegas, create a new DV project, open the
    folder containing the DV AVI files with explorer, select them all and
    drag and drop them onto the Vegas Timeline, then just ask vegas to do
    a 'Render as' a new DV file, should be pretty quick so long as the
    Vegas project settings match the captured DV as no processing will be
    neccessary. I have done the above with both Vegas 3 and 4 and
    Scenalyzer files.

    As mentioned above you will need a file system capable of supporting
    the size of output file you create.

    Hope this helps,
    Ian

    Using Premiere;

    Import them into a project-

    Put them into a new storyboard.

    Arrange them the way you want them.

    Push the button that drops them onto the timeline

    Play
