personalStudio: Missing codecs

Contributed by: Mark Hall
This tip is valid for: Both BeOS and Haiku

If you’re trying to export a personalStudio project for the first time, you may find there are no video codecs available in the export menu. This is because the filetype defaults to “RIFF Audio File Format (WAV)”. This is an audio-only format, so obviously there are no video codecs that can be used with this filetype.

The solution is to change the filetype to QuickTime or AVI. The video codec picklist will refresh with all of the available codecs for that file format. You’ll only need to do this once, as the preferences file will properly store the list of output codecs for your next use.
