[mythtv-users] Question about using nuvexport

I am new to editing with myth....
I recorded a 3 hour program using mythtv.
I only really want to keep about 3 minutes of the program.
I used the edit mode to set a cut point in front of and behind the clip
I want to save.
I pressed X to transcode.
Now if I watch that show, I only see the clip I want.
I appears the original file is still intact and rather large. Is this
to be expected? I guess I thought transcoding it would reduce its size.
So - moving forward.
I tried to use nuvexport to extract that little clip to a small(er) mpeg
I chose option 8 MPEG2->MPEG2 cut only.
This started up avidemux2 which consumed all of my cpu for about 18
hours before I killed it.
I haven't tried this again. Am I going down the wrong path?
All I really want to do is archive this little bit of video and then
delete the rest out of mythtv.
Thanks for any help/advice.
