After finishing a conversion to from avi mpeg1 to make a vcd, i have to splice the movie in 2 seperate files as to put them on 2 disks. But...after i split them, the 2 files get changed to regular mpeg(non vcd) instead of staying mpeg1(vcd) for vcd conversion. Now i have to convert the 2 pieces seperately over again to put them on vcd because Nero tells me its now in the wrong mpeg format. Nero offers to convert to the proper mpeg format but i dont think it can do a better job than TMPEGnc so i tell it "no". By the way...i tried 2 seperate tools to cut the mpeg1 in half. I used MyFlix and TMPEGnc. They both gave me the same problem i just described. Is there a way to split an mpeg1 in 2 without having to reconvert the 2 parts after or is this part of the process?
