    How to export to .wmv

      Ok I've got a 5 min 10 second video I want to export to .wmv...for some reason the option is not in my export options...tried it in the render que for .wmv and it came out over 45gb file with choppy animation and such.

      My friend gave me the specs she uses:

      Export to .wmv at 5.9 mbps 720i.
      what the heck is 720i?

      I'm new to AE 7, but I've torn the render options apart and can't find anything looking like it is gonna give me those options. Got the windows media option...but it still comes out at a rediculous file size...garsh.

      She said it was a plugin she got, but can't remember the name of it.

          720i --> HD 720x10280 px interlaced. WMV exporting is handled by the Adobe Media Encoder (Windows only), which is a dedicated sub-system inside the standard Output Module settings. If it is in place can be verified by checking if other options like MPEG-II DVD are listed in the output format selection and of course the ominous "Windows Media" itself. What you describe sounds like you are actually creating an AVI file. A WMV at the specified ratres and duration should be nor more than 400 MB or so...

            Also, one variable is missing, and that is the frame rate.
