Exporting a QuickTime
on Aug 23, 2011 at 7:56:18 pm

Hi...

A photographer friend of mine wants to uses some of my 7D footage on a slideshow/video fusion thing they do. I thought it would be better to give her small clips I tweaked rather than just transcoded clips. I exported 20 individual quicktimes, current settings, and wrote them to DVD. I was able to look at them but my computer choked a little. She couldn't see the video at all... only had audio.

Any thoughts on this?

Help...

These are PRORES files, right? They need at least QT 7 in order to see these files.

Thanks Guys!

Yes, the transcoded files are prores 422. So, the work around is in the transcoding?

best!

Shane and I have different opinions about QT7 being able to read ProRes 422 on an non-FCP machine. I'd say that is most certainly the problem, but I'm going to check tonight.

If you want to get going right away, it's tough to go wrong with transcoding to ProRes HQ. Just use the existing ProRes 422 files as the source: badda-bing, you're done.

Then let your photog friend transcode to the codec of choice.

If you transcoded to ProRes 422, and your photog friend doesn't have FCP 7 installed, the video can't be seen.

QT 7 can read only ProRes HQ or ProRes LT video without the extra goodness imparted by FCP7.

It can read plain old ProRes 422 as well...

I'll quick grab a ProRes 422 file, open it in QT7 Pro on my home windows machine -- which definitely does NOT run FCP -- and report back.

Make sure you make the clips "Self-Contained" also.

Re: Exporting a QuickTime -- My report
on Aug 24, 2011 at 2:23:48 pm

Well, Mr. Ross, I checked both a ProRes 422 and a ProRes HQ file on my Windows box at home, with QT Pro 7.55 (plus some other decimal values). I could see both files with no problem!

Just for the heck of it, I also checked the files on my desk computer at work, with QT Pro 7.4.5. I could see neither file.

Thus, the lesson to be learned here is to have the latest version of QT 7 Pro available, and life should be good.

I guess the decoder came with 7.5...so if you have 7.6, you should be fine.

Thanks for testing.
