Can I get away with just viewing on an old G4
on Mar 5, 2010 at 1:24:49 pm

I am about to do a job and I was wondering if I could use my old G4 laptop with QT pro installed to view my pro res QTs from my FS-100?

When I hook the FS up to the laptop I can see the files but obviously can't view them, I don't want to waste money getting QT pro for the laptop if it's not going to work.

many thanks

Have not tried a G4 but a G5 can barely play ProRes in HD. Even a Mac Mini would be better. The codec is optimized for Intel.

QTPro has nothing to do with it, by the way. The latest Standard Quicktime has the Pro Res reader built in.
