Hello All,


So I am trying to use a video in final cut pro that has the codec:
Quicktime VR, VR Panorama, Photo - JPEG, Sprite

But when I imported it into FCP 7, naturally it played back as a still. I tried transcoding it in mpeg streamclip and compressor but nothing seemed to work.

It plays back normally in Quicktime 7 (as a moving panoramic shot).

Here is where I downloaded the QT VR Panoramic from:
http://www.shakespearesglobe.com/about-us/virtual-tour/upper-gallery
I tried downloading both , Save as Source and Save as Quicktime.

I'm out of ideas. Does anyone know of a good way to convert this?

It isn't a movie. It's a still. That's why it's showing up as a still. Yes, it is a moving panorama, but a QT VR is basically one large still...stitched together from a bunch of stills, that you can pan and zoom...move. It isn't video. That's why all the normal tools that deal with video don't work on it.

Get screen capture software like Screenflow or SnapzPro...make it go full screen. Record the move, export that to QT...into an editing codec like ProRes.

You can also animate the move in After Effects or FCP or Motion.
