how do i save an animated render as WMV?

hi everyone.
how do i save a render as wmv (windows media vidio)? the version of windows media player i have can’t read the avi files verry well (the’re extreemly jumpy). i tried it in this vidio editor i had but i only had a trial and the trial time expired.

Which format you are using to save renders?
Use MP4 container format with H.264 codec. I never had any problems. What’s your PC configuration?
If you you’re looking for an format conversion utility try FormatFactory

You could render your animation as image sequence png, or tga and use SUPER to convert it to wmv or every other format.

The website is very ugly but the software (Freeware) is very nice. :slight_smile:

avi jpeg: general gives smoother playback because its a compressed format
avi raw: is generally slower ( and choppy in wmplayer ) but better quality.
