I am very new to AE. I am just trying to save or export a sample project to a .mov, but I do not see tha option. All I see when I try to export is I can export/save to flash or premier. I don't see all of the other options like I have seen on AE tutorials. I have seen turotirals online and there are about 20 file options to save the .aep to, but I only see three, the flash, and premier.
Thanks in advance.
Don't use the Export command to render your output. Use the Render Queue.
Note that, if you're using a trial version of AE, some output options will not be available to you, due to licensing restrictions.
You may have launched the render engine. Make sure you're launching the app.
