PPro Quicktime Export problems

My quicktime exports from the Adobe Media Encoder take the expected time to process but yield a 1kb file (yes, that is one kilobyte!)that QT player doesn't understand. I am using PPro 1.0 and the 1.1 upgrade from Maiconcept. I saw another recent post about this but there waqs no solution. Any ideas? And no, I'm not using the QT Beta 7.0 player

Same Problem

I ahd the same problem, then I changes the settings to those recommended by the DV Challenge Sticky, and started getting files. Unfortunately the files were 70M when the Real Player version was 6M.
Apparently I don't have the best encoder...

Never had any luck with quicktime. Microsoft's WMV rocks.

Thanks for the Reply. I tried copying the settings as best as possible in Adobe's Media Encoder, no help.

were you able to use the factory presets that came with the encoder? a 1kb file is pretty weird.

I have found that for some reason the bitrate slider in Adobe Media Encoder is totally inaccurate when encoding to QuickTime files. If my memory servers me correctly I believe it has to be set to around 25 Kb/s to get an approximately 350 Kb/s file, which would yield files about the same size as Windows Media or RealMedia files of the same bitrate.

Unfortunately, the QuickTime codecs are nowhere near the quality of Windows Media or RealMedia. You'd have to get the Sorenson Pro codec to achieve similar quality. The other option would be to install the free QuickTime 7 player (now in final release) which would give you access to the excellent H.264 codec. (When exporting to this codec, if you have interlaced footage make sure you use the de-interlace filter for the best quality. Otherwise I discovered that encoded videos came out looking terrible.)

The 1kb file you are trying to open is just a refrence file. If you look in your encoder settings under the alternate tab you will see that there are some options set by defualt that render out multiple versions of your movie and are located where ever is says in that window. Mine was on the C drive. I just uncheck the alternate check box.
