saving video in PT, exporting to earlier version
Hello PT Friends,

I import avi video files into PT and edit the audio/video which are grouped together in 2 tracks. I edit via audio.

Is there a way to save the tracks, say as an avi file which will include audio as well as video. I then want to be able to import the saved avi track into my laptop which is older and runs an earlier version of PT. The earlier version (7.3) also imports avi files and can edit as video/audio linked tracks. I would like to be able to take these avi files and go back and forth between 2 mac computers. The laptop is for portable editing.

I couldn't find anything on the file menu that would export the tracks. Does anyone have a click by click solution?

Main computer is:
10.5.8 leapord
4g memory
PT Le 8.0.1

Thanks for your help,

Re: saving video in PT, exporting to earlier version
You have to use Bounce to QuickTime Movie. I don't know if you can bounce to AVI tho. To see all your options, follow this procedure:

1. Hold down control-option-command all together
2. While holding those, go to File menu - Bounce To - QuickTime Movie
3. When you select this while holding the 3 keys mentioned, you can choose other options for video format

Again, I don't recall seeing AVI as a choice, but maybe another format will suit you?
