I have a question for all you wise PC users...

Ok, I have two movie files (in .avi I think) and they're part 1 and part 2 of a whole film. How can I combine these two files into one big, uncut, beginning to end movie?

Secondly, how then I can I burn this movie to a DVD so that it can play in my DVD player? I'm using Windows so I don't have anything cool like all that Apple movie making stuff.

Thanks

Now why would you have a film split into two files that you want to burn to a DVD; if it isn't an illegaly downloaded one designed to fit onto two 700mb CDs?

well see...it was a project for a film class and at the time that I needed it to be transported from 1 PC to another all I had was a jump drive - thus I needed to split it into two halves...

Anywho, if you're using Windows XP, you can use Windows Movie Maker (start>all programs>accessories>entertainment>Windows Movie Maker). It's not great, but it will get the job done.

So, Windows Movie Maker will allow you to put the two clips together, but as for a free DVD-movie burner, I don't have a great idea.

Can't the program you did it with re-join them? If not, then as Marv said Movie Maker should be able to do it (assuming you have Windows XP). I use Nero to burn video files to DVD, but it's not free; and since I own Nero, I have no reason to look for one, so I dunno...

For future reference, it's easier to use an archiving tool like WinRAR to split it into more than one archive, rather than split the file itself. Then all you have to do is extract it.

Archaon is right. Next time use winrar to break it and archive it. THEN unrar and it will reassemble. Free dvd burning software ? i have tried a couple and This one was ok....
