    Great for Editing HD Video

    • Written by from Williamsburg

    The user interface is somewhat sparse, but the underlying capabilities are impressive. I have used this program for several HD projects from my Panasonic Lumix. I could easily cut and paste segments into my videos, and edit and sync sound tracks. I haven't seen these capabilities elsewhere for the price. The program also provides many great options for exporting to other formats. I should give it another star to counter the low ratings from others, which I don't understand, but I won't. It is a solid product for the price.

    FOR MOST PEOPLE - THIS PRODUCT IS A CON

    • Written by from Ridgewood

    Like most people, I paid $30 for software that I expected to simply make it easy to copy videos for my daughter's ipod Video.

    It's bull. We spent about 2 hours trawling through the "help" pages trying to de-code and understand the geek-speak - all to no avail.

    Unless you're some kind of home film-maker with a future career in film production, this product is a poinless waste of your money.

    In my case, Apple won a cheap sale - but lost a customer.

    This is the biggest waste of money I have ever spent!!!!!

    • Written by from Southgate

    If you are a PC user, buy something else!!! I know it's my fault for buying something made by Apple for my PC, but this is the complete garbage!!! The PRO version does nothing more than the free Microsoft software that came with my PC so what's the point? It doesn't record video on PCs, only Macs. It locks up and doesn't display videos correctly. It forgets that there is an audio track included in some video files. There is nothing on Apple's website that offers any kind of helpful information. WHAT A WASTE!!!

    What a waste of money

    • Written by from Ocean Springs

    I can't believe this program doesn't recognize MPEG's or DVD files. But wait! If I pay an additional 20 bucks I can buy a plug-in to recognize MPEG's. This is the sort of thing I would expect from Microsoft, not Apple.

    It's a Trap!

    • Written by from Virginia Beach

    I purchased Quicktime Pro in order to quickly and easily make very basic edits to some movies I'd recorded on my iPhone. All I wanted to do was rotate the movies in order to properly load them into a PowerPoint presentation. First off, the interface to do this was ridiculous. Had I not been able to look up a tutorial online, I would have spent hours looking for the method to rotate the movie. Once I found it, the movie appeared to rotate just fine. No amount of saving could actually make the change stay permanently so that I could properly display the movie in my presentation, however.

    I wasted $30.00 trying to rotate a movie. It doesn't get much simpler than that and yet this product fails to do it. I'm frustrated and annoyed.

    Quicktime Pro is a crime unto the world. Don't do it. It's a trap!

    Do NOT Buy, this application still need work.

    • Written by from phoenix

    This is truely a great application, but for most computer it will not work. I hate to say this since apple is such a fine company, but it still needs work. The buffer may not always pick up the information that you need for your media. I have tried using this player to run on my companies servers, and it crashed our systems because it couldn't pick up data fast enough. And we have a T3 connection. If you really want a top of the line media player, just wait until QT8 HIGH DEFINITION is up for download.

    Quick Time Pro 7.7.1

    • Written by from Tulsa

    For what I'm doing QT Pro 7 is ok. Giving 3 stars.
    This is more of a amateur tool.
    Not a Pro tool as one may imagine that it would be. It could be improved if Apple ever decides to do so.
    Works good for me although It would be nice "in editing" if you could precisley remove the frame you want to remove from your movie.
    If your looking for a product that is fine tuned and precise, keep looking...

    I want my money back!

    • Written by from APO

    I purchased QT Pro to rotate videos that were shot sideways. I managed to rotate the images which now ballooned in file size and tried to continue working on the righted videos in Roxio (which could not rotate them unless you went thru four different steps and still had problems) to find the videos after being turned in QT Pro were now again sideways. I feel this should be stated in the descriiption and that the final product can only be seen in QT. I had planned on sharing these family videos with family and they may not want to use this software. I want my money back but of course one of the things you lose when buying software online is customers rights to return a product for purchase price if you are unsatisfied with it.
    Signed: Disgusted with Quicktime Pro
    P.S. ZERO STARS!

    This product is lame

    • Written by

    I have spent 3 hours trying to dump this QT product from my computer - trying to return to Windows Media 11. So far Quick time overrides my resets of the default setting and returns to open my MP3 and Mp4 downloads. Man QT is lame. Can anyone at Apple help me remove this invasive software so I can return to WMA?

    Laggy Player, Poor UX

    • Written by from San luis obispo

    I bought the PRO version so I can correct the annoying gamma shifts that happens when encoding to h264. I am using a high end machine and using the Quicktime player has just been an annoying experience since the player generally feels laggy as I scrub through HD video. Manipulating settings in the movie properties panel is supposed to update in real time but it just lags and gives me an overall poor user experience.

    If you want an excellent movie player, go with VLC.

    QuickTime 7 Pro for Windows

    • Written by from Honolulu

    Found it excellent. I guess there are those who are detractors because of the virus issue of Windows. I started with the MacIntosh Plus in the mid-80s, went to Windows 95 on a PC in the mid-90s, because we were using it at work, and now I have come full circle and take a lot of movies with my digital camera in the You Tube mode. I am still using a Windows 7 computer, however I use QuickTime exclusively. That is, I do not use Windows Media Player. I have not used a Mac since my Performa that I bought in the late 80s or early 90s. I have an iPhone and an iPad, though no iPod.

    Awful - Serious Issues

    • Written by from Harvard

    The MOV files from my iPhone were rotated 90 degrees and since the size for 30 second clip is 45 MB I need to convert these to MP4 for smaller size I could pass around. Unfortunately when I exported MOV files to MP4, in QT Pro, the progress bar would display for a few seconds and then it and the QT main windows would freeze. I noticed the conversion continued (while the screen was frozen) and eventually completed. Unfortunately QT Pro can't seem to make an output with the correct aspect ratio. The output does not take into account the rotation and the result is a flattened image. Pretty poor piece of software for $30. This piece of junk should be rewritten by the good programmers at Apple instead of the new hires. Also, they should not charge at all for basic conversion and aspect ratio, and image rotation. What a rip-off.

    QuickTime 7 Pro

    • Written by from GLASGOW

    This software was bought because I needed to convert my videos to the correct format so i could transfer them to my video iPod, but after it had changed the format of 8% it no longer worked. After leaving the software to run for 3 days it still hadn't changed anymore of the video. I tried the application with more than one video and none of them worked. Very disappointed as this was the main reason for purchasing QuickTime 7 Pro

    I never thought I would regret my first ever purchase from Apple!!

    • Written by

    Just paid £20.00 to upgrade QT7 to PRO version. Yet I still cannot find the option that lets me burn ".mov" movie clips to DVD.

    What a waste of money - even if it's just £20.00.

    Ever since Microsoft brought out their MS-DOS in 1980s, I have been hooked on their technologies through thick and thin (I am an IT Administrator for Bluechip company); and throughout this period, I have resisted the temptation to buy into the Apple brand - except the freely available QT player. And today, my faith has been strengthened in Microsoft's Windows technologies.

    We all need a reality check every now and then.

    QT7 Pro - don't waste your money.

    Does not read my files

    • Written by from Iowa City

    I was told that QT Pro was a great tool on the Win PC but... When I tried QTPro to open files from my DV Camcorder I got the message "is not a movie file!"
    When I double click on the files they launch into Windows Media player.
    I had to spend another $40 on "AVS Video Converter" in order to resave the file in a way QT Pro could even open.

    Guess I do not understand Apples definition of "Pro"

    Extremely Bad Experience

    • Written by from Royersford

    I can't tell you how difficult and frustrating this experience was. Besides being unbelievably SLOW, it simply didn't work. I would try to delete a few second of a video and it would delete minutes. I ended up downloading free software. $30 down the drain.

    Should have read reviews

    • Written by from Whitehorse, Y.T.

    I bought this product because I thought I could trust Apple to do what it says.I have numerous video from a camcorder (which it says the program can handle) that I wish to clean up and make home moives. It said it would do this, along with being able to add music. It does not! I also wasted my money and I am very angery and disappointed, all I can do is vent!
