frame skipping in QT Mov.
on Jan 29, 2011 at 1:39:38 am

Just saved a 3o minute program QT Movie(with compression markers) everything looks great except for occasionally skipping a frame or 2. Will this correct when I export to compressor? What could be happening?

Yes, it'll be fine.

QuickTime is a playback engine, but it's also a container. There are a number of codecs that aren't optimized for playback through QuickTime, but QuickTime still holds all the frames. When it gets to compressor, it'll access each frame for further compression.

Jeff G,

I worked until 3AM last night trying to figure that out!
I was beginning to think I had asked asked a dumb question.
