I just finished an anime music video of mine using adobe premiere for the first time and I was very surprised that the finished file was a couple hundred MBs. I tried using the Adobe Premiere built in compressor but its terrible. I was wondering if you guys could help me out with this compression issue. Thank you.

Personally, when I'm finished with a video I export it from Premiere with no compression (which will result in a 1GB or so file, so make sure you have room) and then use Virtualdub to compress it. There are avi compression calculators available that you can use to determine what settings for different compression algorithms (divx, xvid, etc) to obtain a specific filesize.

Is Virtual dub easy to use? if not then is there an online tutorial i can refer to?

virtual dub (VD) is imho easy to use and fast.

Wether you do it with VD or Premiere, you will have to choose a "video codec" for compression. What codec to use depends largely on what you want to do with the video. If you want to burn it on DVD, "mpeg2" is the format of choice. Better in terms of compression efficiency are the "mpeg4" codecs (For example DivX, XVid, Microsoft mpeg4 in an .avi file) If its for private use i recommend XVid which is free to download. See here for links: http://www.divx-digest.com/software/xvid.html

ps. and dont forget to compress the audio part too, for example as mp3 or ogg stream.
