You need to select QuickTime and then choose the MPEG4 codec
on the property screen. Or if you output to AVI you must have
the DiVX codec installed (or XviD or...)

Ok, so I tried encoding MPEG-4, and it looked like crap. The audio was okay, at a sample rate of 32000, but the video was crappy. I did it 320 by 240, at "Good" quality. . .anyone have recommendations on how to keep the file size down but have it look okay? At this crappiness, it was 4.8 Megs. I probably don't want it to much higher, right?

4.8 and 37 is quite a difference, wouldn't you say? Don't expect
the quality to stay the same. I'd up the bitrate a bit to get a movie
of 10 - 15 MB, see what that gets you.

Oh, well, in that case, I got it looking pretty decent at 12 MB.

Okay this is weird--on this on section some of the audio doesn't play. I've tried it three times, rebooted the computer, don't understand. Audio from the same track plays on other parts, but when I render this particular section, nothing.

OKay, so it's only 12 Megs when it decides not to render portions of the audio, otherwise it's 18 megs or so. Soooooooo. . .can anyone give me bitrate suggestions? Tips?

Alright, got it to 19.6 megs, in MPEG-4 format, looks okay, the sound's kind of metallic. . .worth uploading again?
