So i dont want to render to avi cuz my computer just doesnt have the umph to play it back smooth. When i try to render to mp4 (h.___) i cant because i dont have the option to. I have latest version of AE too. Anyone got a solution? ty in advance.
Render using: COMPOSITION > ADD TO ADOBE MEDIA RENDER QUEUE. This will open Adobe Media Encoder and you can choose mp4. Of course, you need to have Adobe Media Encoder installed.
You could also try Quicktime - ProRes. It gives way better quality than mp4, but at a much smaller size than AVI.
