How Can I Convert iMovie To AVI?
The common method of exporting an iMovie project to AVI is through converting it with QuickTime. You can easily share it onto QuickTime and select AVI as your output file format. Prior to that, please double-check the version of QuickTime that you have downloaded and installed because the range of supported file formats might vary. If the option is there, you can simple select ‘Save exported files as – Movie to AVI’ in QuickTime’s setting. If there isn’t such choice available, you will have to convert your iMovie to AVI with a 3rd party’s converter. The one I preferred is the Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate for Mac.
One of the main plus point to convert your iMovie to AVI is due to the higher quality and settings in the codec. Hence, AVI is the more preferred file format for playback or watching on the large screen TV. However, this might not be the case when you try to convert it with QuickTime as very often the converted video files will come in very low or poor quality. It is not going to make any difference even if you try to adjust the codec after conversion.
With the Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate, you are not restricted to only file format conversions. There are also other features available to give you the access of editing your video files before conversion as well as to share your finalized video with family or friends. You can share it both online and offline such as uploading your video files to YouTube or Facebook and even burn it onto a DVD. Read on further for some simple guides.
