After you’ve mixed your audio tracks the way you want them, you can export the inserted video file together with your audio tracks to create a new video file.When you export a video, any changes you’ve made to the Start, Trim-In, or Trim-Out times determine how long your new exported video is compared to the original video that you inserted into your SONAR project.
Note: If you’re exporting an AVI file, the No Compression option in the Video Codec field of the AVI Encoder Options dialog box is a good choice. This choice does not change or compress your source video material. If you want your exported AVI file to be compressed, the Cinepak option will create an AVI file that plays back smoothly with decent quality. The MJPEG option will create an AVI file that does not play back as smoothly, but is a high quality format to archive a file in.
1. Make sure your audio tracks are completely mixed, and your video Start time, Trim-In time, and Trim-Out time are set the way you want them.
2. Use the File > Export Video command.The Export Video dialog box appears.
3. In the File Name field, type a name for your new video.

Note: If you’re exporting an AVI file to either a 24-bit audio format or to a multi-channel (surround sound) format, set the Audio Codec in the AVI Encoding Options dialog box to No Compression.
