    Used by Professional Every Day

    • Written by from AUSTIN

    I am a 30 year veteran with chops in the film and media industries. Some of the negative reviews are not relevant to Quicktime Pro. Others simply don't make sense. Every Mac we use in our studio, including the brand new Mac Pros running 10.9.5 run QT7 just fine. Every PC in our studio is running QT PRO7. We are platform agnostic. This is the most useable utility for video playback, quick trimming edits and conversion that we use. All of our approvals and deliverable viewers are QC'd and or Modified with Quicktime Pro. All the codecs you would ever need for professional work are available from Avid to XDcam to uncompressed to Black Magic to Cineform. Yes, occasionally there are gamma issues depending on origination codec etc. Often through a little research you can solve the issue. Often, on the high-end, we deliver formats like DPX sequences. Often for television, the delivery may be a quicktime container. We find it cumbersome, even on our PC workstations, to live without Quicktime Pro 7. Cannot recommend it enough.

    Solid Encoder

    • Written by from Rolla

    A few years ago I had a need to make videos from rendered image sequences. At the time my primary platform was linux, but I needed something that would simply and reliably encode video that would playback on multiple platforms. I had issues with the major open source encoder. In contrast, QuickTime 7 Pro just works. When encoding for the web you get an html page that is trivial to adapt and provides for file selection based on the client. Saving is flexible with a variety of options to choose from.

    For simple encoding needs it is a robust solution that just works.

    Many hidden features

    • Written by from Village of Lakewood

    QuickTime Pro not only is good for simple conversions and editing, but it has an incredible amount of power that I discovered when I got a book for iMovie. The book kept showing how to do very advanced editing techniques using QuickTime so you could put edited clips into iMovie. QuickTime Pro is actually a very advanced editing program. The only issue is the user interface isn't very Mac like.

    Great for simple editing tasks

    • Written by from Tualatin

    QT7 Pro will do simple editing without transcoding, so it is lossless and fast. Great for trimming or extracting portions of videos. It also does very flexible transcoding. It isn't a replacement for iMovie nor is it for screen captures.

    Here's hoping Apple either keeps this running forever or brings QuickTime X up to its capabilities (which so far doesn't seem to be happening).

    Buyer beware - Current version is broken when editing Audio back to a video

    • Written by from West Hollywood

    The "pass through" feature is broken in this current version (7.6.6). You won't be able to save audio if you add it to a video clip using the "pass through" feature.

    Export Not work on lion

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    I wish I could give a zero star for this program. It is absolutely waste of investing. Stop working when I upgrade the system to Lion, and now the export function stop working, which was the main reason why I purchase this app in the first place. :(

    I've used QT Pro for years (the same version), and find it extremely useful for video compression. I just had to buy it for work to encode streaming .MOVs & it does the job without a bunch of bells & whistles. It gives you more options than any of the free file conversion applications available.

    Not Happy!

    I was disappointed with this program. I was able to edit my videos, but when I wanted to burn them to a DVD I just couldn't. Please advice.

    Another bummed customer!

    • Written by from Pine Falls

    I also thought I could record the screen with the pro version. What a disappointment! Aside from that I can't figure out what the point of upgrading to pro is? It is not easy to figure out how to edit video in it. Waste of $30.

    Too Much of Too Little

    • Written by

    QuickTime Pro seems to have only one cool feature.
    Playing 4 movies at once on the same screen.
    Outside of that, the best tools for the job are
    programs like AVS4YOU. Sadly they're only
    PC compatible... luckily Macs provide BootCamp.

    Where are the transition functions for QT Pro?

    • Written by from sequim

    I bought QT Pro 7, because I thought this would be an upgrade for my iMovie, which I hate. I hate the iMovie Ken Burns effect because of the lack of control with the very dumb zooming in and out.

    So, now, after digging into my new $30 purchase, I'm wondering why QT offers no ability to provide a transition from frame-to-frame, like a very basic and simple Powerpoint slideshow, or iPhoto? I deleted both iMovie and iPhoto a long time ago, because they are a waste of memory. iMovie has an ok interface, but where are the video editing tools for Apple that allow for multimedia presentations? iMovie was a bug-ridden piece of garbage, which seemed to have different bugs for each version that was released.

    Microsoft has a nice little free movie editor, but because i have a Mac, I can't use that -- I have to go back to MSFT's PPT to get reasonable slide transitions; and of course, that doesn't work either when you save a PPT to video! The obvious solution seems to be to not use photos with video. Why didn't I think of that before I spent $30????

    Apparently I may be able to spend hours and hours adding in extra black frames in-between slides and then playing around with alpha channels and altering opacity, but for $30, I had hoped this would be one of the most basic features offered.... duh. This will also be an issue for video transitions and title fades, ... so maybe there is someone here that has a link to help me out? The on-line guide from Apple for QT did not help. Next time I consider any Apple product, I'll spend a lot more time asking questions and spend time doing a hands on test! I remain somewhat hopeful that there is some useful functionality there for video edits!

    what a mistake

    • Written by from Toronto

    I thought if I bought this I could record screen. Well it doesn't. It can record what camera shows. I needed to capture screen and that can be done in regular FREE version of quick time. Ctrl+Cmd+N. Found out too late.

    Waist of money. I wish product was better described. well...next time.

    BTW, installation was nightmare, finding application, registering is not straight forward. All in all-not happy with this software at all.

    Is Apple abandoning you (us) QuickTime, Final Cut Pro?

    • Written by from sao paulo - sp

    We The Pro People, have been using Apple for many years. Could someone from Apple please make us, try and understand:
    • Why do I have to go BACK to QT 7 to use QT PRO? (aren't you embarrassed to ask this?)
    • We The Pro People with what you are doing to Final Cut Pro. Why?
    • What is the idea with Lion X? Why are there no major updates to fix so much? Or maybe you could forget it, follow the yellow brick road and come up with Bear X, or with OhMy X (Lions, Tigers and Bears, Oh my!).
    We The Pro People have been faithful to you Apple for many years, and in return got the best from Apple. Please keep feeding us the best to keep our faith strong.
    Keep Mac OS X robust, well designed and in the front.
    Or is Apple so bewildered with iPhone, iPod, iPad, that Apple is losing interest in We The Pro People?
    Also in this relationship, I would rather have it straightforward, and not through subtle hints. If you are to leave, let us part as friends. It has been so good for so many years..

    Stunningly Ridiculous!

    • Written by from Aquebogue

    Apple needs to include all the Quicktime 7 features BACK into Quicktime 10. How dumb is this? Even the Apple Tech guys I spoke to on the phone don't get why they did this. The Lion version is missing WAY TOO MANY FEATURES. You can actually run both versions in Lion (or still have 7.6.6 to use instead of version 10). What a mess. C'mon Apple. This is not good. Steve would not be happy with this snafu.
