    If the .MOV file you're getting from your digital camera is absolutely huge, it's probably in raw DV format and can be opened/converted using whatever capture software came with your camera. If you purchase the $29 license for QuickTime 6 Pro, it will allow you to output as .AVI.

    Remember that .MPG is a very lossy format and, if you want to edit it later, you'll lose quality every time you open, edit and recompress/save it. If you want to get serious into editing, I highly recommend Discreet Cleaner which is what I use for final output on my G4 (also available for PC) after I've edited the final piece with Final Cut Pro.
