Default render in .avi?

For some reason maya won't allow me to render in .avi for more than one frame at a time, I want to render in a video format to use and edit in premiere but it won't let me? Do I need a plugin for this? If anyone can help please do, thnx.

Read the manual on setting up Render Globals (or watch our free Render Globals tutorial here at SM). You have to set it up properly to output multiple frames, name, file type, size, renderer, etc. Also, most folks stay away from Maya's AVI output as it can be flaky at times. Instead, render out your animation as a sequence of tif, tga, or iff files, which can then be imported into Premiere.

When you render, you set up in Render Globals the naming convention you want to use (i.e., myFile.001.tif, myFile.002.tif, etc), so you output each frame as a separate image. In Premiere, if I remember correctly, once it tries to import the first imported image, it will ask if this is an image sequence? Say, "yes" and it will import the whole thing. You should really watch the Render Globals video I mentioned above as it goes through the whole process, except uses the Free video editor, VideoMach, in place of Premiere. You might also search the forums as these questions have been asked many times before.

Not sure about maya plugins to export in other video formats. Like I said, Maya's video support is crap and no one really renders out AVIs from it (except for maybe quick Playblasts). It's not a video program. Just output the animation as images and import the sequence into Premiere. Then, output in whatever video format you want.
