What are you trying to do? Are you wanting to create another DVD?

im combining all the vob files to one file because dvds split the movie into different files

example:
VTS_06_01.VOB
VTS_06_02.VOB
VTS_06_03.VOB

There are free utilities to do this without conversion. Dvdshrink is an old one.

How long is your movie project?

A 22 gig DV-AVI is not unreasonable for a 2 hour movie.

The rendering setting you should use really depends upon your final destination.

The size of the output file is determined by two very critical things: the length, and the bitrate. You haven't told us the length nor what sort of AVI you're rendering to, so we're doing a bit of guessing here. Is your video somewhere around 1 hour, 41 minutes? A DV-AVI of this length would be just about 22GB, which is a completely normal and expected result. DV-AVI has a combined bitrate of about 29.5Mbps (megabits per second). Most DVDs are around 4 to 8Mbps. So, converting DVD material to DV-AVI should make it somewhere around 7.5 to 3.75 times bigger.

What are your plans after you've joined them together? How and where do you want to show them, and on what media? We can help you suggest better ways to get smaller results if we know what you want to end up with.

Don't render. It is the wrong way to join .vob files. You want a single .mpg file, not some bloated avi.
