This program contains a number of tools for working with AVI files. The AVI Constructor Pack bundle contains AVI Constructor, AVI Compress, AVI Merger, AVI Extractor, and AVI Speed Adjustor. One big downside is that there's no main control panel that combines all the programs, so you have to launch each program independently. The pack is easy to use, however, and is highly configurable and performs actions quickly. For instance, the extraction of images from a three-minute video took only 20 seconds. Features include tools that allow you to merge and compress AVI files, adjust the speed of a clip, and compile a movie from individual images. When testing the latter feature, we couldn't figure out how to save the AVI to our hard drive, and clicking the Help menu item didn't do any good. In spite of a few shortcomings in this program, video buffs are sure to like this application's versatility.
From Michael Caracena:
AVI Constructor Pack is a collection of software tools for Windows 95, 98, Me, NT, and 2000 that can assist you in creating AVI files. It contains AVI Constructor, AVI Compress, AVI Merger, AVI Extractor, and AVI Speed Adjustor. Both AVI Constructor and AVI Merger support the creation of 2-bit, 16-bit, 32-bit, 256-bit, high, and true files. You can quickly preview your animation in its main window before you build the AVI file. You also can auto-capture (capture an images from the Clipboard while you're working in another imaging program).
