    This product is the best. 100% worth the $30 by far. Especially great for podcasting... makes it very easy to edit right in QuickTime! Even better when used with GarageBand and iMovie! A must have upgrade!

    Final Cut Pro is overkill for almost anything I would need to do. What I need a video editing program for is encoding (saving movies into formats for web streaming and my iPod), some basic editing, color correction, slideshows, saving movies from the web, and viewing movies in full screen.

    QT Pro does all this and more. For less than $30 this is money well spent.

    Good but difficult

    • Written by from New Port Richey

    Although it's a good application and all, it can be quite difficult for the average user to use (especially with converting videos). There should be a few extra options (for example, PSP, iPod, PS3) so that the user doesn't have to manually find the right format that their device uses. I think Apple needs to work on that and, getting a few more codecs into the app (especially native inclusion of DivX, XviD and WMV, that would be great).

    doesnt do anything that imovie cant do.. in terms of cutting/editing. maybe it just does it a bit quicker, but is that worth $30?

    i bought it 10 minutes ago and am already regretting it

    bought it to convert .mov to .mpeg-4, but it doesnt work. am now paying ANOTHER $20 for a different program... that actually works.

    Doesn't Work for me Either

    • Written by from Livonia

    I too did exactly as the e-mail said. I cut and pasted my code to make sure it was exact, and my name as well. It says QuickTime Pro on the area where you enter the code, but none of the upgraded keys are highlighted and so I can't use any of the features. Therefore a one star rating.

    Frustrating and I don't look forward to hours on the phone getting to a techie. Any suggestions?

    Easy, Powerful, Useful, (Did I say Easy?)

    • Written by from Modesto

    What can I say? It is rare that a product continues to live up to it's hype. This is a simple, yet extremely powerful software that has continued to lead it's competitors by example. I use it exclusively for both my home and business solutions. Ultimately all video will end up being shown using Quicktime. Way to go Apple!

    That did the trick!

    • Written by from Lilburn

    I needed to do the simple task of creating a movie from still images (png's). I've used Imagemagick on Linux, Videomach on windows, even using powerpoint to create a gif animation, but still wasn't happy with the quality and ease of use. Within a minute, QT Pro created exactly what I needed.

    Pro grade software

    • Written by from SAN FRANCISCO

    I read some of the other reviews here and saw complaints. As a video editor I can tell you quicktime is a very usefull tool. I want to correct some of the misunderstandings. Buying quicktime pro you enable its recording and exporting abilities. QT Pro comes with a long list of avaliable codecs, but it doesnt mean you can export your video to every 3rd party codec. For working with different codecs you should install them too. At the end you are geting pro quality software for an inexpensive price. QT pro may look like a simple software but it is used in professional video projects with no problem by me and many other video editors. If you are working on video at any degree its a must have software.

    Golly Wally bad reviews

    • Written by from Eugene

    I am simply amazed at all of the negative response, about Quicktime Pro.
    I have been using Quicktime Pro for several years on both windoze and macintosh machines. It has always performed flawlessly.
    Converting files is what I use it for. I use all of the high end video prod. software.
    Powerpoint is lame, what is its actual use? ( I actually do know how to use it very well) it can't handle large pictures, which causes stalls on even fast machines, won't work on another machine unless it has the exact same fonts etc.
    and most people think it is a slideshow software.
    iPhoto: golly wally does that really deal with video and sound? I did not know this.
    maybe to play but it is not a {video production anything} maybe to ....

    If it, Quicktime Pro doesn't work, I will just bet there is a user that has been buttering his bread with dumbbutter for way to long.
    My Advice: start thinking OUTSIDE THE BOX, there really is an opportunity for all if you just stop using the dumbbutter that is being handed out so freely.

    Why does anyone need QuickTime Pro?

    • Written by from Margate

    Since my first QuickTime Pro 3 I have had to upgrade to the next Pro level because every time the update comes in, it gets rid of the Pro. I never could use Pro for very long until I figured out what Apple was doing to me. I don't think the upgrade to Pro is worth anything. Other products can do the same thing without all the problems ... from the key not working right ... to finding where QuickTime Pro went to after an update.

    Good for what is

    • Written by from Auburndale

    QuickTime Pro is a nice little video conversion tool with some minimal editing and effects capabilities, and that's it. For example, if you have some .dv files that you want to turn into something that you can watch on your iPod, this is the thing to get. If, on the other hand, you have camcorder footage and want to edit that, use iMovie. And if, heaven forfend, you need to synchronize sound and image using timecode info, you need Final Cut (I think.)

    I think Apple overhypes this product dreadfully. As I said, it's a good video conversion tool, not an all-in-one consumer video editing solution. Ironically, I believe pro video users end up needing QT Pro for various small tasks, while amateur video users can do without it.

    This registration key works fine.

    • Written by from Scottsdale

    I'm not sure most people understand what this is. Its NOT software. Its only a registration key, nothing more. What does it do? Lets you save Quicktime movies to a file from a web page. It also activates a few other odds-and-ends, but nothing to write home about. Is it overpriced, sure, but it does activate these added features. Nothing more. Nothing less.

    Buyer Beware!

    • Written by from Ottawa

    After spending the better part of a day trying to convert a set of digital photos into a slide show with accompanying music from iTunes using Quicktime 7 Pro, including reading the sparse information on slideshows in the Quicktime manual (that is focused almost exclusively on movies), I was unsuccessful. The Apple promo info on the Quicktime pages makes it seem like producing a slideshow is a piece of cake. I finally resorted to calling AppleCare Support only to discover that Quicktime Pro is classified as a "pro" product that requires a fee of $200.00 from a 3rd party technical support company. Despite having AppleCare Support and Apple's statement of support for any Apple software purchased from Apple for 90 days after purchase, there is no mention of the additional and exorbitant fee for technical support for its "Pro" products. The least Apple should do is include a mention of this on its web site and beef up its manual for Quicktime 7 to provide more information and examples for converting digital photos to slideshows.

    Media Pros Love Quicktime

    • Written by from Philadelphia

    Why are non-Media Professionals allowed to write reviews of software and hardware? If you are a non-Media Pro then your near sighted opinion of Mac hardware/software is about as valid as the notion of WMD's in Iraq. Quicktime is amazing and if you have a problem with it I highly recommend trying to use Windows Media Player, because it is a great deal more frustrating and out puts a lower grade of video.

    Worth it

    • Written by from Pleasanton

    It's worth the upgrade to purchase the full version. With QuickTime as my main video player, it is extremely useful to have the ability to play a movie in full-screen. I am slightly disappointed in Mac for not including this in the regular version, as full-screen playback is an important part of any video player, but was not let down by the quality upon completing the installation.
