I found the answer to this in the FAQ's somewhere before but can't find it now!!!!Need to change the codec settings on a new install but can't find where the settings are in AM v.17....aaarrrgggg.. getting the AVIFileCreateStream error when I try to render to AVI file. I know it's the compression setting and can see the right one on another machine that works fine...can't find where to change it on my new machine...can see it in options but can't change it!! Tnx all

Can't change it? Hmmm... Try setting some other format like TGA and render a frame then try to go back to AVI. I don't know.

Just to be sure: You just dont know where to change the codec? That can be done on the Render to File Dialog if you click on the small in front of "Format". A new entry will show up called "Save Options". If you click on "Set" next to that, you will be able to change the codec. But in general it is the better habbit to render to images (like TGA or EXRs) and compress them after rendering using A:M or another program like Quicktime Pro, a post-procesing-software like AfterEffects or a Video-Editing-software like Vegas. As said before you can compress them with A:M too. Let me know if you need to know how. See you *Fuchur*
