Hello,
I have a Canon PowerShot S3, I was wondering if I might be able to get some help with converting AVI Motion JPEG 640x480 30fps files into AVI 720x480 that are editable in Adobe Premiere 6 or 6.5. I tried opening it as the AVI Motion JPEG and an alert box came up stating: "Unable to open that file. File uses an unsupported compression format."

You shouldn't do that!
You can edit the Canon videos nicely with Virtualdub without recompression. While it is possible to uspsize the videos, this is not a good idea. Rather I would recommend to use Virtualdub and Xvid to convert the BIG MJPEG videos into small DivX videos with unchanged size of 640x480. These can then be replayed on a recent DVD player, which supports the DivX format.

The Problem with Adobe Premiere Pro, at least version 7.0 which is what i used, is that it doesn´t support the Mjpge codec to edit movies it will support de DV format though. To recompress the .avi files you can use Windows Movie Maker and then save with NTSC or PAL DV format, take inconsideration thatit will double the file size but you will be able to edit the files in A. Premiere. To use Adobe Encore is a different story, I use version 1.0andit won´t accept the 640x480 resolution to create DVDs.

I would also be interested if someone could suggest a good, but not too heavy software to edit encode as mpge2 and create DVD´s withe these mjpge encoded .avi files. Windows Movie Maker would be just fine if it could save in mpge2....
