Adobe Premiere elements 3.0 & Serif Movie Maker MPEG
Is there a way to capture video in Adobe premiere elements or serif movie maker to MPEG or WMV instead of AVI?
Media studies at our school is taking up all the storage on our network (and has become a sore point) with the AVI files that adobe and Serif create, so they have turned to windows movie maker to capture the videos to WVM (as they are smaller files) but Windows Movie Maker (WMM) doesn't support networking so won't map any network drives and captures videos to the Shared Documents in C:, then compile the movie to one big movie and save it as an MPEG file to the shared documents, so my assistant has to find the files on the computers that the kids were using and move them to their userareas so they can continue to work on them in Adobe premiere.
One option was to put another hard drive in all the machines (15) and give only the media kids access to that drive or get media studies to buy some external hard drives but only a few kids can use them at once.
Can anyone suggest anything?

That's the way we've gone, dedicated storage.

Add a second drive and network card to each machine. Share each of those second drives over a dedicated network as a network-available block device. Use your server to combine these block devices into a 15-element RAID array, then share that array back out again as a Windows / Samba share.
