    Auto "updated" my Pro version to the free version!!!!!!

    • Written by from Hayward

    I paid for QuickTime Pro awhile back and it was working fine. Then, one day, I launch it to do my thing but the controls I wanted weren't there. Apparently a QuickTime update for the free version auto updated my Pro version. Now, if I want to get my Pro version back I HAVE TO BUY IT AGAIN!!! WHAT???

    Unpredictable pile of garbage

    • Written by

    This has to be the worst program I've ever used. I had used quicktime pro on a Mac about 4 years ago and it's video editing was limited, but easy to do. I don't know if the issue is with the PC version or whether it has gotten worse over the years, but this program is now TERRIBLE. Just trying to find where you can rotate a video is a battle, if you adjust the size, it randomly decides to ignore your edits. You can clip parts out of the movie and they'll randomly come back or you'll see flickers of frames you deleted days later after you have saved the file. You can trick it into adding titles, but it takes a tremendous amount of effort and after you spend an hour fighting to get an image into the video it will randomly decide to delete all of your video tracks so you can't see anything, yet they're still listed in the movie properties. If you paste in a movie clip of the exact same size of the current video, it will offset it 300-400 pixels and jump your original video over a few hundred too just for good measure, so then you have to dig through the menus and relocated the video back to the 0, 0 position - EVERY SINGLE TIME. I have to use this for work and I've already blown an entire day trying to add titles to 3 or 4 videos and I'm still not done. This program is not worth a penny and I will never ever use it again once I get this project finished.

    Downloading Quick Time Pro in Real Time took eons

    • Written by from Canberra

    This review is solely on the frustration of trying to download Quick Time Pro. A tip for young players - do not follow the directions you get after purchasing QTP (they state "Visit the Apple Online Store Account Page. On the "Your Account" page, click "View Order History." Sign in with your Apple ID and password, then click on "All Item Actions" and select "Download Now" as you will not be able to find "All Item Actions"! Instead, you will eventually stumble across a help page which will tell you the right directions - down load the latest version of QT, go to "preferences" (this is under "file" menu) and then put your registration code in there - you will then get access to all the greyed out menu items that are only available for the QTP version.

    Apple should be ashamed to sell this pile of garbage

    • Written by from Phoenix

    I wanted a professional app for video that I could use in place of VLC. I bought this program thinking that, since it was from Apple, it would be great as are all of their other products. But I'm very sorry to say that it's a pile of junk. Just about every video file that I open with QT7 causes a message to pop up telling me that the audio can't be decoded and that I need to go to the QT site to download. But once I get there, the trail goes cold. I can't return it because I downloaded it online. So, all I can do is forget that ever bought it and never buy another piece of software from Apple electronically again (that's gonna be hard). This wouldn't be so bad if I wasn't such an Apple fan. Steve Jobs, if you could only see what the people in charge are doing to your legacy.

    I think Apple needs to offer a FREE TRIAL of their software products like Adobe and Microsoft! I think the price is okay, but most people do not realize what QuickTime is capable of ESPECIALLY when it comes to video creation, editing etc...so people who do not know what it is capable of can try it for free then when they realize how awesome it is...they will keep the trial. Do like the others do, get all the information, (have customer register) put cc information etc most of the time people will keep using it when the trial is over.

    So GET WITH THE TIMES APPLE! Everyone knows you offer great products, but sometimes we want to try it out first before we make the financial investment; little or big. Just a thought

    Laggy Player, Poor UX

    • Written by from San luis obispo

    I bought the PRO version so I can correct the annoying gamma shifts that happens when encoding to h264. I am using a high end machine and using the Quicktime player has just been an annoying experience since the player generally feels laggy as I scrub through HD video. Manipulating settings in the movie properties panel is supposed to update in real time but it just lags and gives me an overall poor user experience.

    If you want an excellent movie player, go with VLC.

    Won't open old QuickTime (Mac) files

    • Written by from Hewitt

    I have a large number of old (circa 1995-1999) QuickTime files (Apple photo JPEG, 320 x 240 format) that the Windows version refuses to open. It just gives the message "Error -2048: Couldn't open the file becaue it is not a file that QuickTime understands."
    Even though the Windows version won't open them, they run fine on QuickTime Player 7.5 for Mac.

    i use this program for all of my college work... compiling jpg files into a movie, editing clips exported from maya together... not only does it let me control frame rate and effects, but i also edited sequences and can open/export in any professionally used format. Not sure why all the negative reviews, i find this program extremely usefull.

    What a ripoff

    • Written by from Wellington

    I wanted to buy this product in New Zealand, and noticed it's almost 1.83 times the price listed on the US website, how can Apple justify this price when the conversion rate is 1.21 Seems to me we're being ripped off here in New Zealand. Shame on you Apple!!

    It doesn't work at all

    • Written by from Shepherdsville

    I bought this to convert a sequence of jpg images into a video file using the "Open image sequence" command. It just doesn't do anything. I can select the file and then NOTHING. Searched all over for answers, couldn't find any. Complete waste of $30.

    Cost rip off

    • Written by from THORNLIE

    Good grief how do you do it. The US $ and the Aus $ have been at parity for ages and you are supplying a key that will be suppied electronically - but on the US site it is $29.99 and the Australian site is $44.95. I am a pensioner trying to do something for a non profit organisation and thought your software might be the way to go - maybe I was wrong - but wow wish I could make money like that.
