I'm editing .avi videos (converted from 8mm movies), and using Virtualdub filters. When I try to "save it as .avi", I get the message "cannot initialize smart rendering. The selected video codec is able to compress the source video, but cannot match the same compressed format".

Not understanding much about codec, I had downloaded Xvid MPEG-4 Codec. Evidently this is not what I need.

Please help!

got it - thank you.

Now, I filtered it with Brightness/Contrast, and Deshaker v2.4 (which I added). But:
is there a filter that enhances color?
in certain sections, I'd like to slow down the movie to fewer frames/sec. Can I do that?
The person who took the original movies seems to have had trouble holding the camera straight, and much of the movie is at an angle. Is there a way to correct that (section by section, if possible)?

I now seem to have a de-compression problem.
I managed to do some filtering with VirtualDub (Deshaker v2.4) and then saved it as .avi, after compressing it with Xvid MPEG-4.
It is now an .avi file, of the same duration, but the size has shrunk from 858 MB to 183KB.
How do I make it usable?
