File splitting

Hi all

I have a couple of clips on my hard disk that I want to transfer to an external firewire drive but the drive is formatted for FAT32 so the file size is limited to 4G.

The clips on my raid are 58Gbytes so can anybody give me a solution for splitting the files down to 4G chunks?

A free solution would be ideal as hopefully this is a once off.

Thanks
Donie

I think Scenalyzer might do this. Not sure if their free
version can do it as well. Easy to check out if it does...

VirtualDub should definitely be able to do this, I'm not
sure if it can output DV files though. If it does you will
probably need to select Microsoft DV.

If Rob's suggestions don't work, why not just chop the clips up into 4GB segments (about 15 minutes or so) in your copy of Premiere Pro and export each segment onto the external HDD?

In theory (and in practice, as far as I know), there will be no degradation in quality when exporting as DV. It may take a little effort to chop the clips and wait on the exports, especially since you've got about 4+ hours of video, but since you've already got Premiere, it will definitely be free.

Hi guys

I split it up in Premier and saved it in logical chunks as big as I could make them while staying under the 4G limit. Thanks for the help.
