QT 7.6 update undocumented: Canon 5D Mark II movies

Apple released Quicktime 7.6 today, which "includes changes that increase reliability, improve compatibility and enhance security." Sweet. Undocumentedly, it also changes how Quicktime movies made with the Canon 5D Mark II are decoded—for the better.

Above is the same 5D clip I wrote about yesterday, back in Color, with Grade Disabled. The clipping is gone. Unlike yesterday, now the waveform is contained entirely between zero and 100 IRE. You'll see this as well in Final Cut and any applications that use Quicktime to decode the 5D movies, such as After Effects.

Yay! Problem solved, I guess. This is a scary thing for Apple not to document in an update though, because it will radically change the appearance any 5D clips you're already working with. So update with caution, especially if you're in the middle of a project.
