Under your redering options panel, select .AVI as your output and for compression/codec choose the Divx 5.

For the best quality/compression with divx u may want to do multipass encoding, basically when u save the avi u can tell divx to be pass 1 of 1 or pass 1 of 2/pass 2 of 2. Ud have to do this in a video editor tho u could do it by rendering outfrom lightwave twice but if you did want to do this id recommend rendering as stills then generating the avi in something else (virtual dub, premiere).
Ud bring all the stills in and export the movie with pass 1 of 2 selected in the divx options, then ud export the movie again overwriting the file (use same filename) but set it to pass 2 of 2 and it will create smaller file sizes with better quality :) (it doesn't actually overwrite it)

Why thank you, both of you very much.

Look forward to new better looking smaller movies from me now on!
