I have AutoGK and Xvid4PSP.
I have two avi files that are a movie separated into two files, they are great quality and perfectly encoded I just want to combine them into one avi file.
Xvid4PSP can do this I just must not be using the proper settings; I use the join file option with the following settings.
AutoGK doesn't seem to have a join feature.Code:Format: AVI Denoise/Sharpen: Disabled Brightness/Contrast: Disabled Video Encoding: Copy Audio Encoding: Copy
Any assistance would be appreciated.

AVI Demux. Load the first, append the second, save the result (don't forget to put the extension on the filename when you save). If you are asked if you want to use smart rendering answer yes, and use a quantizer value of 2. This works for me.Read my blog here.
Is there still no easier way? I know AVI Demux works fast and perfect, but it would be nic to have something like
- Select the two files in Explorer
- Select "Join" in the Context Menü
- Drag and Drop the two files into the joiner
... an Idea?

O.K. found an easy way via command line:
avidemux2_cli.exe --nogui --autoindex --force-unpack --load Movie1.avi --append Movie2.avi --audio-codec copy --video-codec copy --output-format AVI --audio-map --save Movie.avi --quit
- Build VBR Time Map? (this is done by --audio-map) -> otherwise async Audio
- Unpack Packed BitStream? (this is done by --force-unpack) -> not really necessary
Be aware, that --audio-map has to be written AFTER --load and --append!! (not sure why..., but otherwise async Audio)

Hmm... is it really impossible to join an Avi with 2 Audio Tracks without going through temporary files? (join Audio 1, join Audio2, mux)
I now tried various tools and all simply ignore the 2nd Track... (AviDemux is the only one, allowing to select the Track, but it also does not join all Tracks...)

Virtualdub will give you a warning if it can't. Sometimes you can join the audio files with an audio editor and direct stream copy the files without audio, then append and add the joined audio file but it's simpler just to use Avidemux.
The pain with Avidemux is that you have to append each file separately. With Virtualdub, if it will append the files, it will append all sequential files (001.avi-002.avi-003.avi-004.avi etc...).
Ok - I'm a convert. anytime I can do something from the cli vs gui its a plus
not to mention support for linux and mac.
OMG. This is way too complicated. I have 14 files to merge together. There is no way I am going to use old DOS type input in 2011 when drag and drop should be all that is required.
I was about to bang my head on the desk with VirtualDub. I hate it when you download something then have to download something else to get it to work right (ffdshow). Then that doesn't even work or is so complicated you would rather just have two files instead of one.
Anyway, I registered just to say thanks guys. Avidemux and the instructions in post 1 is all it takes. 2 minutes and I was done. 30 minutes trying to figure out VirtualDub and got nowhere...
