What do I use to compress a uncompressed AVI?

I wanted to import a RAW episode into Adobe Premiere Pro but it had a error saying that it was uncompressed. What program do I need to compress it so I can use it in Adobe Premiere Pro?

Premiere should be able to work with uncompressed video without a problem. If the video is truly uncompressed, you'll know it - a minute-long segment could be a gigabyte in size, depending on the framerate.

If you want to try compressing it with something, download Virtualdub or Virtualdubmod and get either the Xvid or x.264 codec onto your system. Assuming Virtualdub can also open the file, you'll be able to "save as" and choose the encoding settings from there. For minimal quality loss set the quality to 100%. You should have better results with H.264 (and I know for a fact that Premiere Pro supports H.264-encoded video as I've worked with it before - it should support XviD as well, if you have the codec on your system).
