Is there any downside to converting large avi files to mpeg2 for editing? The final project is going to be in mpeg2, to make a dvd. My hard drive is running out of space. I have about 5 hours of avi footage, at approx 13 gigs per hours. If I convert that all down to mpeg2, it will only take up about 7 to 10 gigs total.
