I delivered the mp4 for archiving. Systems requested alternate file formats like wmv. I explained the problems with Premiere on my Mac not having options for AVI. The Adobe forums also state that wmv is for windows only as well. I can’t export to these options because I’m running Premiere on a Mac.
I was asked for an AVI version of this video we have online. I said yes because apparently I don’t know any better.
On my Adobe Premeire CS5 that is running on my back-up Mac (mine’s in the shop) on Mac OS X 10.6.6 there is no option for AVI output in the export options. I’ve been on forums all morning and yesterday afternoon and I can’t seem to find a solution to this problem. I found one forum that said that AVI is only available on Premiere for PCs. Great.
However, today I got my Mac returned to me. Unfortunately this didn’t do anything for me on the AVI file front.
Trial 1: export to MOV, import into iMovie and then export that to AVI. / Conclusion: An AVI file that has suffered sever degradation.
Trial 2: Re-install Final Cut Pro and try to get an AVI file that way.
