    Apple Fails Big Time with QT Pro 7

    • Written by from New York

    Bought QTPro and the mpeg2 addin.

    Comments: Need to make videos of bands I work with. As I have a PC, QTPro7 won't let me capture Mini-DV to .mov in one step. Second, converting avi files to MP4, mov takes way too long.... so long it's not practical to think of making a conversion with QTPro - unless I do it overnight. Finally, email video share only works with macs as well. These disasters should be mentioned upfront to the public before they waste their money on QT Pro Software.

    Quicktime PRO upgrade

    • Written by from Perth

    Purchased the PRO upgrade for my 14 year son to be able to transfer his DVD music videos to his Video ipod. After 3 hrs we all gave up with trying the software which has got hopeless instructions, is pretty user UN-friendly (in interface terms)and has next to no help or proper tutorials for DVD to ipod video transfers. It was a complete waste of money. We ended up spending a further $39 on an alternative software package that can do what Quicktime PRO should be doing with ease

    Works great for me

    • Written by from Cambridge

    I read the split reviews and decided to risk the $30. I found that it works great for me. I entered the registration key and was immediately able to convert/compress video. I needed to compress a 15-second clip of 1394x720 monochrome video for work, and the default .mov (H.264 codec) produced an output video with no visible artifacts and a 40:1 compression ratio. True, it did take 170 seconds to compress the video using a new IBM T60p Core Duo 2GB, but it was worth it.

    Why did I buy this product?

    • Written by from Cave Creek

    With all the apple addicts talking about user interface design like they owned the concept and positioning Apple as the great combator against the evil Microsoft Empire, you'd think that Quicktime would be both open and intuitive.

    I've used a lot of video editing, video rendering products over the past year but Quicktime Pro may be the worst - most restrictive/closed and non-intuitive interface ever!

    Perhaps I'm not geeky enough - it is for the true H.264, .mov, .qt, 2 pass, architecture engineer. I just want to save a few .wmv, .rm, and .avi movie file as .mov files.

    Fortunately, they've made it so slow compared to virtually every other product I've ever used, that I can get a lot of yardwork done while it "encodes" video. My wife is real happy with that.

    This Sucks

    • Written by from Boulder

    I bought QT Pro and am having playback problems. Unfortunately I'm apparently on my own as Apple seems to have no real support for this product. I read through all the material online but it didn't solve my problem. What a waste.

    Horrible Results with Quicktime Pro!

    • Written by from Whites Creek

    It has been a nightmare to try to install Quicktime Pro. Now that I did, it won't work, or works intermittently! All I see are green lines. For a few seconds I saw the movie, then green lines again. I work putting music to videos - I can't believe the shoddy support and unreliability of this product! Now I have to uninstall and re-install again, and if that doesn't work, go back to quicktime 6, which has no support. The tech guy didn't know what it was! It won't let me give a zero rating , so I gave it one star. This stuff is supposed to be easy! Buyer Beware! Ron

    QuickTime 7 Pro Is Terrible

    • Written by from la Quinta

    I have used QuickTime 6 Pro (PC Windows XP) for many years without difficulty. The new version, that I was forced to buy when I wanted by buy some iTunes, is terrible. When clicking on Export>Options, it crashes...every time. When transcoding from AVI to MPG4 it takes an hour while I have to watch stupid iTunes pop up ads. Apple can do better!

    What about mpeg-1 and mpeg-2

    • Written by from Crawley

    We bought the pro upgrade so we could convert from mov to mpeg, only to find it will only convert to mpeg-4 and Adobe After Effects will not import mpeg-4.

    This is a huge let-down. After promising so much this product delivers nothing.

    It's great if you want to dump movies on your iPod, but some of us have serious work to do.

    Why no additional CODEC downloads?

    $44.95 down the drain - thanks for nothing Apple !!!

    PS: The ONLY reason I rated this one star is because the forum wouldn't let me choose no stars.

    Good but not great. It does what it's supposed to.

    • Written by from Louisville

    Based on reading some of the terrible reviews, I almost didn't buy Quicktime 7 Pro for Windows. I'm operating on Windows XP and my system isn't brand new and sometimes is a bit fluky.

    That said,I'm glad I went ahead. The entire upgrade process worked smoothly and was over in less than half an hour. The software isn't completely intuitive and the online help is a bit dense, more like Microsoft, but I very quickly was able to achieve full functionality. Basically, within an hour, I had accomplished all I'll ever want to do with this software.

    One suggestion: When you're first working with the software, use "Save As" at first and work on a copy rather than on an original. That will save you the heartache of ruining your only copy of a precious film.

    This is garbage

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    Quicktime 7 Pro for Windows is garbage. It doesn't work. I never had a problem with Quicktime player, but the upgrade does not work at all. It tells me that I have Quicktime Pro installed, but there is no way of accessing it. My computer works well otherwise, and it far exceeds the minimum specifictions for the program. And tech support? Forget about it. Once they have your money, they don't give a ____. $30 bleeping THROWN OUT. Please be warned!!!! Zero stars.

    Slow to Export. Won't Open AVI.

    • Written by from Pleasanton

    I bought this product so I could export some MOV files (on xp). It takes forever compared to other software, exporting to other formats. 3 hrs now and 21% of a 5 minute clip.

    I also tried to open some AVI files. Every other piece of software opens them fine, but Quicktime only opens the soundtrack.

    Compared to other products, the support documentation is sparse.

    Can't get it to work...

    • Written by from Austin

    I just bought and installed QuickTime Pro for Windows XP but something seems to be missing, in parts, yet in the Control Panel, it says that it's upgraded to QuickTime Pro. I've been searching the web, etc., reinstalled QuickTime 7.1, etc. but am not getting anywhere. I'm trying to create a QuickTime movie with QuickTime movie clips and add sound. Yet, I feel totally lost and am about to give up! I really wish there was a tech/teach support number to call. I'm a regular computer user but am very frustrated with this. Maybe it's a firewall issue, or something obvious that I'm missing, but, it's useless as is.

    • Written by from MARIETTA

    I have an ipod 30g and its the cream of technology. The speed of one song to another is instant along with power up. I see the similarites with Quicktime and IPOD. The blue tubes and the personality. I love Quicktime and they were around in 1999. They have always been ahead of their time and my hat is off to them. Too bad I can't work for them. This program works great on a modern computer (XP and latest Mac)

    Poor Design & Not a Debugged Product

    • Written by from Walnut Creek

    1. This product has NOT been properly debugged, at least for the Windows environment. For example, windows do not close completely or move properly. Also changing of window size and saving of results is flakey.
    2. The video editing is not intuitive. For example, many editing features are found under the WINDOW drop down menu instead of under the EDIT menu.
    3. It lacks some basic capabilities such as supplying video transitions or more than minimal video effects. Microsoft Windows Movie Maker does a MUCH better job in this regard.
    4. It is incapable of reading Movie Maker files (type "wmv") unless I just haven't been able to find that capability yet.

    Although somewhat slow in exporting, QuickTime Pro is an amazing application and, for the price, it's incredibly powerful. It does exactly what I thought it would do. I don't understand why others are having problems... hmm...

    Works Just Like it says it does

    • Written by from barboursville

    I am not sure why so many people wrote bad reviews about this product,, because it works just fine, on Windows XP.

    you have to follow the directions and make sure you are using 7 player (brand new download), and if you follow the directions it works perfectly.

    In less than 45 minutes i had it in loaded and had put 6 clips togather to make a movie of my daughter. I have hours of little clips i can now put them all togather to make complete movies.

    thank you apple, i think this is wonderful

    and to anyone who can't get it to work, i think your machines have a under lying problem you need to address to get this to work the way it is meant to.

    i will recommend this to everyone i know,,
