    you have to save the animation in a sequence of images. this will save you from wasting time if in the process of rendering lw crashes.

    Always best to save out images.

    You can compile an .avi easily with a program such as VDub, which you can then load into After Effects/Vegas etc to save out as whatever movie format you need.

    While it is always best to render out images, if you need to render straight to animation...

    On the Render Properties Panel > Output tab, remove the check from next to Final Render (Under Standard) and place a check next to Animation. Then at the bottom you can choose AVI, MOV, etc. and then below that you can click Encoding Options to more specifically narrow down the encoding (ie: MOV > H.264 or Animation codec).

    You can also use LW itself to compile animframes into an .AVI.

    The best you can do for free solutions.

    Download free Davinci Resolve and fusion, you would have decent tools for editing and color grading and doing som effects, light rays, masking, text effects etc..while Resolve is mostly aimed for the editing, fusion for the vfx type.

    And that is the simplest way..with the risc for lightwave crashing etc..but for small fast test, itīs handy...however..for tests, use the codecs to compress it..but if you want to edit the clip in another software..and still do not want to compile it..as I and others recomend, set avi to uncompressed frames, will take up much harddrive memory though.
