It is really not adviseable to render directly to a video format. If your render is interrupted, you can easily pick up where you left off if you render to frames. As a general rule, you'll always want to render to frames (i.e. exr) and import them into something like after effects to make a video format.

In arnold, all you have to do is pad the frames so they do not overwrite by adding #### at the end of your file name, that way your files will be named sequence0001.exr, sequence0002.exr ... ect.

Inside after effects, you simply import the sequence, ensuring that the "sequence" checkbox is enabled on the bottom. You only select a single file in a sequence and the whole sequence will be imported.

Just select Arnold as the Renderer in the render settings, set the Save format to OpenEXR and render your scene as usual. (https://support.solidangle.com/display/A5AFCUG/Rendering+Your+First+Scene)
