Sorensoon 3 encoding?

Did the latest version of Quicktime do away with Sorenson encoding? I don't seem to find it when doing an output via Quicktime Conversion anymore. I have a lot of clients that I've "trained" to use Sorenson QT's for rough cut evaluation. Did Apple again decide for us what we really need? Grrrr....

Yup, they're there, just hidden. Open QT Pro, then go to either Preferences or Quicktime Preferences... I'm unsure which. Look for a checkbox that says, "Enable Legacy Codecs" or "View Legacy Codecs" and check it.

All them Oldies But Goodies will be there for you once again. I guess Mama Apple, who always> knows what's best for us, wanted to discourage us from using those old, icky codecs...

Thanks Dave. I have one client in particular who has trouble when I send him .wmv files. Seems that they always get caught in his spam filter and he can never get his IT guys to change the settings for him. Quicktimes seem to make it through OK. Go figure. I'll take a look at the preferences. Seems I had to do this on an earlier Quicktime version but I'd forgotten about it.
