Export as a QT and use QT Pro to convert as an avi
Is it really true that when you select File\Export\Media and the Export Settings\Format drop down menu is selected that there are no Microsoft AVI choices available??? Not even Uncompressed Microsoft AVI???
I know that doesn't help, but I'm once again awed by Apple's arrogance if that's the case.
You can try Craig's suggestion, but be cognizant of file sizes. Most PC based *.avi files cause problems if they are larger than 1.9 GB. You might have to adjust your settings to keep below this limit.

That is new to me. Care to elaborate?
Yeah, that's not right have a few 3-4 gig uncompressed files that are .avi's rendered out of AME and AE.
I *believe* that William is referring to PC-AVI files on the Mac, but could be completely offbase on this one. With regards to external HDD's, I know that most Macs cannot read/write with NTSF, and require FAT-32. As Josh points out, PC's handle files much larger, with only the I/O time involved. I've worked with a few 4-6 GB AVI's, there was no problem, other than the extra coffee that I consumed, while waiting for these pups to open, move, copy, etc. Gotta' switch to decaf!
