New Snag-It 11, has become useless to me! :(
I just upgraded to the new snag-it 11, thinking it would be better than the previous versions, however I am very distraught to find out, that I can no longer output to .AVI, or not even .mpg; it appears new snagit can only output to .mp4, why would you guys cripple the product like this? .mp4 is not yet supported by everything, and certainly not the programs I am using, they require .avi input. So now I really feel like I wasted my money upgrading to 11, when it does less than version 9 or 10 did.

Please bring back .avi, + other output formats.

I would much rather see you guys develop a plugin or update that will allow additional output formats. like avi, mpg, mov.
Just having .avi would make me a happy customer.

Please make this a feature request if that will aid in getting avi support back, or whatever else you can do to aid in that direction, thanks.

Why the ability to save video in other than mp4 formats along with video-editing options was stripped from SnagIt v11 (compared to v10) ?
I'm using SnagIt v11 @MetLife and this "enhancement" takes out possibility of creating instructional videos playable in WinXP WinMediaPlayer v10, significantly diminishing value and usefullness of this tool.

Hi Mike,

We really need Snagit to save in AVI formats as it is vital in our work. We record these files and we then share them in conferences, however, saving in mp4 limited us too much. This should be solved!

Thank you,
Nabil M.

I agree, SnagIt needs to be able to save to AVI in order for this to be a viable product. Especially in the enterprise/business world.

Hi there. Oh this is dreadful I just got a brand new laptop so took the opportunity to upgrade to snagit 11 only to discover the same as the others - I can't save to AVI or edit it. I specifically edit AVIs and now I am wondering if I should get my money back on Snagit 11 and see if the older version will work on Win 8? Very sad :(

I edit film in Sony Vegas and although it can open any other.mp4 files, it can't open ones created by SnagIt. In fact nothing I own opens them.

I had the exact same problem, so what I started doing was running my videos in this site to convert my videos to avi format which works fine in Sony Vegas, it's a bit more work than I'd like to do just to put it into Sony vegas but hey it works and its relatively easy
