I have read that TRMOOV is capable of doing this conversion but I cannot figure out how to use this software! When entering source movie I put the path of my .avi movie but what do I enter for the target movie? It wants a path but how can a path exist for a quicktime subtype that I am trying to create? Thank you for help on this matter

from the website it looks like its as easy as running the following from the command line...

RUN "TRMOOV.EXE MOVIE1.MOV MOVIE1.AVI"

or in your case, you are going from .avi to .mov ... so do the following...

put trmoov.exe and your avi movie in the same folder, to avoid confusion.

at the command prompt, cd to the directory containing your movie. then type  RUN "TRMOOV.EXE <your avi file name>.avi <what you'd like to call the new movie.mov"
that should give you a resulting .mov file. give it a shot.

now that i've actualy tried this with a sample avi movie, you only type the following at the command line...

TRMOOV.EXE <your avi file name>.avi <what you'd like to call the new movie.mov

not 'Run' as I copy and pasted from the website above. I tested this...works great.

TRMOOV takes command line arguments, a Test Basic-style script can be constructed using multiple RUN statements. For example: * RUN "TRMOOV.EXE MOVIE1.MOV MOVIE1.AVI" or RUN "TRMOOV.EXE MOVIE2.MOV MOVIE2.AVI" Otherwise, use the simple interface.  I used it to covert a large .mov file to an .avi, and it worked flawlessly.

the target movie dialog box asks you where to save the target movie. in Filename field enter (for example) movie.mov and press ok.
