QT fully deprecated in 10.9 - that tends to mean last stop to end of the line? End for QT player pro too. that one makes me sad. QT player pro is well handy.

Hi
Quote about OS X 10.9:
QTMovieModernizer automatically run by QuickTime Player upon discovery of (over 36) legacy codecs.
Produces a new copy in an AV Foundation-supported format:
H264 + AAC
Apple ProRes 422
Apple ProRes 4444 (for alpha channel).

Legacy codecs include:
Animation ("RLE")
Sorenson Video 3
Motion JPEG A
Motion JPEG B
JPEG 2000
BMP
PNG
TGA
TIFF etc etc

Hi.

Where did this quote originate?

Does this happen in the background? Does it replace the legacy movie or are the legacy and AVF compatible movies somehow linked?

How does this function work?

As I understand it, QTP will pop up an alert dialogue offering to transcode legacy codecs to modern codecs supported under AV Foundation. I assume it creates a new file.

Parts of QuickTime had been deprecated prior to this, but this is the first time Apple has declared the whole of the legacy APIs deprecated. That doesn't guarantee support will drop next rev, but it is pretty plausible given Apple's aggressive push lately to she'd legacy cruft. We've been warned.

Best,
Andy

Although obviously OS upgrades aren't a requirement I know someone that ran their Avid Suite on OS9 for 5 years after OSX came out!

There's nothing we can't argue about on the FCPX COW Forum

Sure, just keep that old hardware running. New Macs tend to require the version of OS X they shipped with.

Best,

Probably someone like so many of us on this forum who are too old, too set in their ways, and too frightened to see the future.

What does "fully depreciated" mean in the software world?

[Don Walker] "What does "fully depreciated" mean in the software world?"

It's "deprecated," and it means that the QuickTime libraries that underpin apps like FCP and QuickTime player are now considered obsolete. Apple will no longer test, maintain or support them, and applications relying on them may or may not work in the future. No new development should be targeted against them, and current development should be phased off.

I'm curious to see what this will mean on the PC side. Will QuickTime support limp along for iTunes? Will Apple bring AVFoundation to PC? If so, will it be public or private? Will Apple drop QuickTime altogether and start using Windows-native media handling APIs? What will become of cross-platform apps that use QuickTime?

Very interesting questions.

One thing Apple was very clear about at WWDC is the fact that the OSX QuickTime API is concidered obsolete but the QuickTime .mov container is still the prefered fileformat under AVFoundation depending on codec. They are not killing the fileformat or ProRes codec. Also, Adobe has complained about QuickTime being a 32-bit API for quite some time. Why not build their QT-support around AVFoundation? Still to immature? Lack of cross-platform?

I just hope they can get Quicktime X as useful as Quicktime Pro as fast as possible.

Well, apparently, FCP7 works in the developer preview.

It's not going to be officially supported, but IIRC that's also true for OSX 10.8
