I’ve got to output a number of of sequences to uncompressed AVI for a client. I’ve exported all of them as Quicktime reference movies so I can use Compressor to batch export them. However, I cannot find “AVI” export anywhere in Compressor, even though Quicktime Pro has this export option.
Am I missing something? I was under that impression that Compressor “uinherited” all the available export capabilities of Quicktime. Am I wrong?
Before you invest too much time messing with this, try to get the precise specifications from your client for the file they are expecting from you. AVI is ancient and permeates the PC world only because the operators of the computers are too terrified to update to modern players. There were hundreds of codecs for AVI and only a scant handful were ever available for Macintosh. None of them are current AFAIK.
You may need to move this project to PC. Unlikely, but it depends on their perceived need for what they think AVI will accomplish.
This is my standard sigfile so do not take it personally: “For crying out loud, read the freakin’ manual.”
