Thanks

Definitely the best software available for the task is VirtualDub

Just open up the AVI file, select the starting position, hit 'Home', select the end position (in your case the half-way point), hit 'End', set Video and Audio to 'Direct Stream Copy', and hit 'Save as AVI...'.

Repeat the steps for the second half of the video clip and you've got the file split up nicely.

Hi and hello...
To split easier AVI-Files i wrote following little Calculator:

Program description:
The Split-Calculator is a helpful program to calculate the Splitpoint for Avi files / DIVX.
Simply (e.g. 650 MB) enter the file size and the the program calculates the KeyFrame you should cut.
Useful for VirtualDub or NanDub.

MicroDee,

I was using Avisplit, and without a doubt it made things easier. I don't know anything about video editing, so nandub was quite confusing when I first downloaded it. and using avisplit made it easier. however, it seems that whenever I use it i lose a minute or so of video between files. any suggestions?
