    Great Product, One Caveat

    • Written by from Olivette

    QuickTime Pro is great set of tools for a very reasonable price. Using it requires a bit of imagination and ingenuity, but if you have no technical chops you may not be in the right place if you're trying to create video.

    The one annoying gotcha about QuickTime Pro is that it dies with any whole number version upgrade. For example, my copy of QuickTime 6 Pro went away forever once I upgraded to QuickTime 7, and I had to buy it all over again. It's only $30, but jeeze! Add to that the fact that whenever QuickTime 8 comes out they will be dunning you to upgrade all the time and probably not mention very loudly that your Pro capabilities are about to irretrievably go away if you do it.

    Sour Apple taste

    • Written by from Wynnewood

    As an ex-Apple employee, it pains me to dump on this product. Others have noted all the basic problems (unannounced deleting of previous versions, requiring full Pro upgrades in new versions, inability to reload previous versions, slow processing, etc.), but to find freeware (iSquint) that does an iPod video conversion faster, at half the kb of the QuickTime file, is really an insult.
    QuickTime Pro is still worth $30, but the experience leaves a bad aftertaste.
    Apple marketing folks (and you know who you are) should really rethink this one.

    Lots of people say, that it can convert movie files for ipod, but without sound, if it's not .mov file. Well, I just don't understand, why they don't convert their movies into .mov file with iMovie. There is nothing wrong with this product, until you mention that when you upgrade your qt pro to new version of qt, you need to repay to have an qt pro.

    I'm just 13 years old, and i have just an G3 ibook, but still, this product works GREAT!!! You just need to know how to use it.

    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!

    QPro Works...

    • Written by from Houston

    I have been using macs for over 20 years and am a graphic designer/video editor. There's nothing like QT out there and for the price the upgrade is the best. I've had a few sites that give me question marked videos (am working to change some preferences) but to be honest, I can't complain. It's the best bang for your buck.

    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.

    Useless for video iPod!

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    Quicktime pro 7 is a rip off. I just bought the video iPod, and of course apple wants to get the most from your wallet. So you have to go out and by quicktime pro 7 in order to convert videos that you already own (not from iTunes). It turns out that many of the videos we all download from the internet are in a "muxed" format. Meaning that iMovie can't convert it to a version for iPod video without there being a problem, ie-no sound. So I purchased Quicktime pro 7 expecting to be able to convert the video clip to a format that plays both video and sound for the video iPod. Guess what, there's not way to do it! I just wasted my money buying this useless software. So if any of you are looking to buy this to convert the videos that you already own, then don't...it doesn't work...at least not for the iPod video. I can't do anymore than what I was able to do with iMovie. In fact I can do more with iMovie, since I was able to use the video clip and add audio from the song I already had from my iTunes library. In the end I got my video with sound. Nothing with quicktime!

    This is not a good product

    • Written by from Chula Vista

    Apple told me to buy this product to transfer video to my IPOD. And i try to download a 60 second video and it takes me more than 2 hours just to export it. It's not my computer that's slow it's the quicktime. Instead of QuickTime Pro it should be called Slowtime Pro. Because it is hypper slow.

    Better but still not worth paying for!

    • Written by

    Apple Quicktime has gotten better over time, version 6 had about a 50% chance of playing a avi file of Divx with the right codecs installed, Now version 7 will play every file type I have which are many, but it is slow and the quality is gittery.
    Apple needs to be giving this product to there users Free!
    There are 2 programs out there that play any file on the Mac and they are both Free.
    So until Apple gets there act together and gives a little back to the devoted users I will use VLC Media Player, there best player for Mac hands down.

    Quicktime Pro for iPod?

    • Written by from North Oaks

    I recently purchased the new iPod video and wanted a way to play videos (besides music videos purchased on the iTunes Music Store) on my iPod. I decided to purchase this program in hopes of doing so. I thought for sure since this is Apple, this would be a flawless procedure, but to my surprise, this was not the case. To be able to make a video play on the iPod, you must first convert the file into a seperate file (file>export>Movie to iPod (320x240). It took nearly 30 minutes to convert 1 minute long video into a file that will play on the iPod. Then you can drag and drop that m4v file into the iPod icon in iTunes, and it will now work on the iPod.
    I would have given Quicktime Pro 1 star but I am being merciful because it does have other features (including full-screen video playback, and you can save files from online as quicktime files (a feature the normal Quicktime 6 did for free)
