I have not been able to use export directly with the "Animation" package.  But
you can work around this by manually making the animation.  I illustrate this


p = Table[Plot[Sin[2 Pi x t],{x,0,1}],{t,1,3}]


Note:  the double quotes are necessary in the ConversionOptions statement.  I
have found that without double quotes these options are ignored.  See the online
help under Export (additional information) for a big list of export options.
