Do you have an option to see a drop down menu, atop the dialogue box when you go to export media? You should have options for MANY different formats to do so...If not in 5.5, as I use 6. then how about Media encoder. Sorry i am not at my WS to give you the exact path to do so. However, in 6. which I think it is the same as 5.5 for export for final you have at least 60 different sizes and players to choose to render out to. It may default to AVI compressed and right below it there is another tab that says custom, up in that area is where you will have your export format choices, almost certain.'
EDIT- See the tabs in the middle of that dialogue box. The Tab Video and try PNG export or 264. However your best bet is Media Encoder for finesse
Thank you! I've gotta chew on this a bit -- the Media Encoder is not something i've ever used...
That link makes it a breeze to understand. The only difference is you wont be able to export via the Tabs he does. You will need to save the file and the import it after opening M.Encoder That is a video for 6.5.555 or whatever the new one is going to be,, maybe CS7?
