im a noob

hello, i just downloaded blender like 3 days ago an ive watched maney tutorials on youtube and on, but i was wondering on the RENDER thing if you can like make the animation you made and save it as a AIV file i tryed but when i try it saves it as a random image file.:no::confused::o

I’m new also and I must say that I’m actually doing pretty good for only my second attempt at a 3d image. I was doing the tutorial in the Introducing Character Animation With Blender book and my last attempt looked a lot much better than my first try. I’m a noob also but I’m proud to say I think I’m learning blender pretty fast and can’t wait to show my creations in the future
