SOLIDWORKS Composer 2020 additional formats available for saving video

Article by John Lee, CSWE updated December 2, 2019


In prior years, the only Save As option for a SOLIDWORKS Composer video format was AVI.

Now in SOLIDWORKS Composer 2020, we also have the ability to save video as FLV, MKV and MP4 as well as AVI.  This can be a time-saver if there was a prior need to convert AVI into one of these other formats using other software.
