Save as AVI from IPN

I was tasked with creating a small video showing how our modules are assembled.  Maybe I'm not doing the correct steps, but I've started with my IPN and animated all the exploded parts back to their original positions.  When I try to save as an AVI, the video is very, very choppy and not smooth at all.  I've played with the intervals and I get the same results.  I've seen some posts about changing the Hardware to Compatibility.  This did help in making the image much clearer, but the choppiness remains.


Have others achieved this with Inventor?  Is it maybe my computer and its specs?


Is there another program with PDSP that will do animations from IPNs?  Is there a different program some of the users have used to achieve this?

From *.iam file I would go to Environments>Inventor Studio to do animations rather than from ipn file.
