Problem Saving Rendered Animations

I have an Intel Mac and I can’t figure out how to save a rendered animation. If i click save or save as in the file panel it doesn’t save the animation. How can I save it?

You don’t need to save it, it get’s rendered out to a file (or set of images depending on the output). It’ll be located in your tmp folder.

Where’s my tmp directory? Also, how do i save it as a Quicktime file?
