EXACTLY what render settings are you choosing?

the default ones (no blur, background: movie, no paint effects, no cropping)

Your post is a little confusing, in the title you state you can't export as quicktime, and then in your post body you state you can't export as .avi.
.avi is not a quicktime format.
What exactly can't you export as?

And why can't you export as it? What exactly is going wrong, and when?

ok here i go again:
i have added effects to my movie and i go 'Export' then 'Export AVI'. it comes up with the render options which i don't change.
i click 'Render' and i choose the filename and target. 'Please make sure AlamDV2 remains the foreground....' pops up then i click 'OK'.
it doesn't start rendering but it says 'Macromedia Projector has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.'
i need to export as AVI so i can edit it and put the sound back in in V Dub
hope that explains it better

When you go to render, the last stage is to select a codec. This is most likely where the problem lies. Please let us know which codec you are trying to use.

usually i just chose 'video' but now when i try to render as AVI (i can still choose filename and target location) it says 'Macromedia Projector has encountered a problem and needs to close.' or something like that with 'Send Error Report' and 'Don't Send Error Report' buttons
basically i just want it as .mpg file
thanks for the replies guys (and girls)

I do not think ALAM is going to export as an .mpeg file. It will be a .avi
For best results most of us export AVI as uncompressed with no codec.

thanks for your help everyone. i found out how to edit it later: The Hard Way
1. do FX in Alam and export/render
2. open videopresenter and record footage to tape
3. capture FX footage back to harddrive in the format i need.
long ....but worth it
thanks again for all your help
