What's the purpose of your workflow?

[Core van der Hoeven] "avi .264"
Is confusing. .264 is not .avi and you can create .264 using Matrox MAX (MXO2 MAX or CompressHD) on the Mac. It's used for Blu-ray.

Do you need H.264 .avi for a specific editing application?

thanks for you reply,

I've edit a film in final cut pro, and the client want also a version on a usb stick wich you can directly plug in a led tv and that one must be an avi.
that is the whole story.

I wish I had more technical information. I tend not to trust clients who claim they need "X" if they can provide more specifics. Might the TV also play .mp4 or a transport stream. You'd really need to see the spec sheet for the TV.

That said, MPEG Streamclip can encode H.264 .avi

That sounds much better since those are more universally supported.

Oddly Compressor can't create H.264 .mp4 directly (but .m4v extension can be changed. DON'T try that with .mov though). Quicktime Pro can create H.264 .mp4 though.

Also Compressor only seems to create MPEG2 Transport Streams and not H.264. Telestream Episode can though.
