I need to put my videos online for samples but not everyone has Quicktime. FCP only exports to Quicktime compatble formats. Not everyone has quicktime, and these formats only play on Quicktime.
I want it to be as easy for my potential customers as possible. So I’d like to give them the choice of WMV or MOV for online viewing.
I’dlike to do this in as few steps (& $$$$$$’s) as possible.Is there anyway to export to AVI or WMV within FCP or Compressor. If so, I just can’t find it.
I believe you would have to use a third party application to create those formats like Flip4Mac or another media converter. You can probably find a free one at videohelp.com.
By the way you seem to be neglecting the most common web video format Flash Video. The flash player is the most ubiquitous media player on the web with a market penetration of about 97%.
Actually I have considered flash, but I have not been able to find piece of software (Windows or Mac) that will help me create SWF files for a reasonable price. I had the old version of Macromedia but the updated version is way to expensive. Help
There are other programs that may do what you are looking for, the one that comes to mind is called SWISH MAX 2.
quicktime pro does avi
I think .AVI works as well as .WMV for Windows people. FCP 5 can export .AVI. Try that.
