Is there a way to save video footage from BI in AVI format over 1GB. I have to use MP4 format to get anything over a gig. Am I missing something or is there a reason for this. Im just trying to save it to the desktop to put on a usb stick for the police to view?

Why do you need the files to be in AVI format anyway?
MP4 format is specifically created for modern media standards.

Quick search from the net:
h264 AVC in AVI is a bad thing.The main reason it's bad is because:

1. H.264 in AVI requires some hacks.
2. Not all players support these hacks.
3. All players which do support these hacks will support better containers, like MKV and MP4. Thus, the subset of players which support H.264 in a proper container is a strict superset of those which support it in AVI.
4. No known hardware player supports H.264 in AVI (AFAIK).

I don't need it I was just wondering why there was a limit. The officer asked for avi but he was ok with the mp4 as well.

Historic reasons I'm guessing. It's ok for mjpeg cameras.

I just want to add in here that I found the UI3 interface amazes me again. Right click clip and export avi. Very easy to select exact size you want. Just in case anyone was not aware as I was.
