Thanks Stephen,

I believe the encoding problems show up in the process of putting several
smaller video-files (scenes) into one final clip.

I think FFMPEG and VDub does the same thing,mainly, and that is going from still
to moving images. (or switching formats) And so far the avi-files produced
during that step show very little distortion.

So I guess what I need is a better video editor basically. Are there any free
programs for that, besides windows not-so-great alternative?
