AVI format movie exports with considerable lower quality than other formats #1100
After testing the movie export section I noticed that the AVI format image quality was significantly lower than that of MP4 format, and even webm format, which is rather odd considering AVI should be an uncompressed format mean for console editing, (and used over other formats when everything else fails).
In the example MP4 I exported the data rate was displayed as 844kbps while the same video exported as an AVI format exported at 128kpbs. Using VLC to analyze these videos, using the codec properties dialog, mentions that the AVI file has an "FMP4 MPEG-4" video format with an MP3 audio format. Normally AVI movie audio is expected to be WAV instead.
AVI format movies should be at least of better quality (and size due to bigger data rate) than of other compressed / lossy formats.
