    $30 wasted

    • Written by from HUDSONVILLE

    Wow, pretty up to speed on tech stuff and I though an Apple "PRO" product would at least give me some pretty functional, basic tools with a reasonable user interface. Debated on going everything from Vegas to Final Cut but just needed to quickly an easily cut out stuff from HD cam to post to web. I was totally denied. what a bummer...

    censored

    • Written by from Abbotsford

    Tried to say something negative , but Apple censored the title. Guess they already knew what a lot of people would write.....

    Trying to install Pro on an HP running Vista, but the instructions don't work. Even read the directions 3 times. Complete trash.

    PC or MAC

    • Written by from Brownsville

    It would be MOST helpful if in your review the FIRST thing you mentioned was whether you are operating on a PC or MAC.

    We are a IT company that runs on 100% MAC equipment, including one of the fastest raid5 servers utilizing a 5 terabyte back-up. We do have a couple PC's for testing data purposes.

    I hear a lot of negative comments balanced by an equal number of positive comments.

    I believe that QPro7 is a fine product for the price of $29.99...can we just say 30 dollars. 30 dollars is a value compared to most of the legit editing software today. For an average user if you couple QPro7 with the imovie software that is included with any newer MAC you would have most of your bases covered.

    Unfortunately, Most of the hand held video cameras available in the USA market make it extremely difficult to modify or even download your video to the HD regardless if it is PC or MAC. Most cameras come with their own software disc so you need to use their software as a liaison to do anything including downloading to your HD.

    If your using a semi-professional video camera to make editable movies for resale to a client/customer then you need way more robust software than QPro7. You are going to need to get off your wallets for approx $5K US dollars.

    If all you are trying to do is change formats for editing a product called "Sound Taxi" works extremely well on PC (it's NOT free)- it will handle audio and video in the most popular formats. After they are converted you can do whatever you need to with whatever editing software you choose.

    Food for thought.

    Great product if you have the ability to follow instructions

    • Written by from South Bend

    I'm not sure what all the negative feedback is about, but this software works great. You can convert audio from one format to another. Some said you can't make mp3s, but you can convert audio into .wav format with Pro. Hello. You can convert video to many formats as well. You can capture pieces of video or audio and paste them anywhere you want to make your own movies or recordings. You can add special effects. Quite frankly, you can do a ton compared to the paltry $29 price. I'm not a computer guy by any means, and it only took me about 15 minutes of trial and error to figure out how great this product is. After you install, click on "Help" and you will be taken to a website that easily explains how to do everything.

    Useless Quicktime pro 7 from Graet Apple!

    • Written by from BROOKLINE

    I got it to can save the video of introducing of iphone 4. It says "Save as" wich is inactive in free version and I purchase it to save and can see later on whenever I'm free intead of waiting bufering again and again! But after purchsing it I saw this useless Pro version doesn't save the realtime video. It's unbelivable to Apple get money from Apple lovers and give them this really useless software!
    I'm really sorry for Apple!!!

    what a pile of junk

    • Written by from San Francisco

    This is the worst pile of junk I have ever purchased. It can't even edit an mp3 file and save the edit product as an mp3 file. It will of course, save an mp3 file as a mov file. What junk!!!

    Bad product

    • Written by from Pine Valley

    Wow, do I feel suckered, I upgraded to Pro thinking it would allow me to edit MOV files, boy was I wrong. This is the most inferior product I've ever purchased, it does practically nothing, even trimming a video is a major pain, but try to add titles or any effect and your in for a trial of frustration. I've tried at least a dozen times to add a title to one video and no matter what I do, it won't be there after the file is saved. Oh it will play in Quicktime but NOT in any other program including YouTube. Don't east your money.

    Error: Not a Valid File Name

    • Written by from Newburgh

    I upgraded to quicktime pro some time ago. I was able to trim my iphone longer videos and save them to my desktop as two different files. For example as, IMG_100-1 and IMG_100-2. For some reason I get a file error when I attempt "save as" and rename the files. I've tried words and other names, all with same "not a valid file name" error. It does allow me to save the original file as IMG_100-1. But then I must redownload it off my phone to trim it again and save it as IMG_100-2. Also when I save the original with a new name it does not lower the MB of the file size. So when I burn the files to a disk they still read 829 MB, or something really high. Even though the trimmed video is now closer to 260 MB.

    I've had better.

    • Written by

    First of all, $29 is really affordable for editing software, so that's a plus for Quicktime Pro, unfortunately I've had better video quality results with various freeware downloads.(They just didn't contain the amount of import/export formats as quicktime does)

    A big issue for me is video quality, when I export a video to an image sequence (TGA, TIFF) the quality is sub-par. There are very limited options when exporting, and even with no compression turned on, the result is unacceptable.

    Quicktime is great if you just want to export files to different formats, quickly cut and edit videos and image quality isn't a huge issue for you. However, there are free software products out there that have better results.

    A+ on AVI to MOV Conversion

    • Written by from Roswell

    I purchased this product because I heard it was a very easy way to take large AVI files from a PC and convert them into smaller MOV files for playback and manipulation on a Mac. Windows Movie Maker can do AVI to WMV conversion, but does not offer QuickTime as an option for export. This product worked perfectly for what I needed. I can now produce large AVI files from a DV camera, convert them to MOV files and send them to my peers who work on Macs.

    Also, there are some great encoding manipulation options.

    However, I do not have any comment on how well this product converts MOV files to other file types such as AVI.

    This product is useless. Dont buy.

    • Written by from Preston

    I have a Panasonic TZ5 camera that take video in .MOV format. I wanted a product that would convert the video to something that I could use in Windows Movie Maker. This site says I can save QuickTime files in a variety of formats including .AVI and H.264. This is true but misleading. Every format I choose reduces the quality of the original. Also the software crashes for no reason. I feel cheated and foolish. This software is useless and I paid £20 for it. In the vernacular it is Pants. Dont buy. Why do I have to give it even one star? It deserves no stars at all.

    Lame Alert - won't work on 64-bit Win 7

    • Written by from Torrey

    It'd be nice is Apple ACTUALLY MENTIONED THAT THIS WON'T WORK ON 64-BIT OS! It just freezes up, and intermittently crashes the computer on startup....at least until you hit 3rd party forums and find out what's going on.

    Apple doesn't say a thing about this in their system requirements. And software that's not available for 64-bit systems!?! What year is this - 2005? Super lame.

    Doesn't convert AVIs (at least not in Windows 7)

    • Written by from Hollywood

    I bought this in order to be able to be able to show movies of my son on my Apple TV. Had already used a free trial of "PQ Apple TV Video Converter" which worked OK, but not great (bit jerky). Thought if anyone could do it right, it would be Apple itself.

    I was wrong. Quicktime Pro wouldn't even open the AVI, and trying to export it to Apple TV was an exercise in futility. After an hour of trying different things I gave up.

    The problem with Apple is that they figure everyone eventually will completely convert to all Apple products, so who cares if their stuff is genuinely compatible with other software. Very arrogant attitude. Maybe it's my fault for believing what they wrote on their webpage.
