Okay so I just got this program and I made a little 7 second animation. I want to export it to see how it will look, but I'm not sure what's going on. I currently have Windows 10 and want to export it as an .avi file so I can import it into a video editing program to use as an intro to my YouTube videos. How do I get it to a simple .avi file and make it accessible through window's media player?
I think that AVI export went away a while ago. You can export perfect quality QuickTime, but on Windows that would mean you need to install QuickTime. You should do that, then you can upload the MOV file you get straight to YouTube.
You can export in .mov and it will open in Media encoder CC. There you have lot's of export options, including .avi.
