AVI files are typically less compressed compared to other formats, which means the files are usually larger. Microsoft developed it with the purpose to store both audio and video data in one file. One of AVI’s advantages is that it remains widely supported, mostly because, from the beginning, AVI was the default format for some of the major camera brands. 3GP is a format that has the most significant advantage in its size; its purpose was to reduce bandwidth and storage space on 3rd generation phones. With its drastically reduced size, it does not do well in retaining the original quality. So why should you convert an AVI to 3GP? If you wish to share video files through your cellphone by text message or apps to other users who will use their phone for playback, then 3GP can be the right choice, that is, of course, if you don’t mind the reduction in quality.
NOTE: Pinnacle Studio is Only Available for Windows OS.
Open Pinnacle Studio on your PC (if you need to install Pinnacle Studio, follow the buy now link above, run the installation file, and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation and setup process).
Simply drag and drop the video from the Pinnacle Studio library or your computer file explorer on to the timeline. Should you wish to crop video, trim video, or make any other edits, now is the time to do so.
When you’re happy with the video on the timeline, go to the Export tab in Pinnacle Studio. The default tab on the export tab is to export to file. Here you can select which file type you wish to export your video as.
Under properties, you can select the video profile to render too. To the right, under the preview pane, you can see the projected file size. Ex. If you select a 4K video format, the file size will be larger than if you export to an HD profile. Once your file type and profile are selected, you can proceed to export.
To begin export, press the Start Export button. This will render your video to the file format of your choice. This is a quick and easy way to export and convert video from one file format to another.
