    i have some 11 minute episode .avi's that i would like to put 3 of them together to make a 33 minute episode. kids love the cartoon but it's annoying as hell to have to change the episode every 11 minutes. lol.

    anyone know of a program i could use to do such a thing?

    Adobe Premiere is the one I use, just drag and drop the .avis onto the timeline and POW!

    If Windows Movie Maker doesn't handle .avi's, I don't know of anything free you could use.

    Dang, I wish I had Premiere Pro.

    You have to export it. Keep the project file though, until you've seen and are satisfied with the exported product.

    You may need Media Encoder. Put all your files in the timeline, then go to File>Export. Choose your settings (obviously .avi) then render out. If your having troubles for whatever reason, Movie Maker/ iMovie will work for what you want to do.

    Will it take it a while to export the file? I think I did it, but it said something like over a hour to do it all.

    Thanks for the assistance!

    Depends on how powerful your PC is, and what quality everything is.
