As I have posted before, QT 7 messes up Adobe After Effects, and I had to delete both, and reinstall AE. I won't be installing QT 7 again any time soon. Just so all know!

as an editor using multiple pc's, i have qt7 installed without any problems at all, so ymmv... i use vegas, boris red, inscriber, etc., and a few oddball editing tools that most people don't run.

you guys with qt7 problems... is it only happening with pc's, not macs?

you can also encode h.264 with the nero encoder, it's a lot faster and the quality is probably better than what you get with the quicktime h.264 encoder... nero also comes with it's own h.264 media player.

the real point here is that the only quicktime internet codec that has acceptable quality is h.264, so if you can't handle that, use wmv, real, the new flash video codec from on2, or even the latest divx... there are also freeware real and wmv media players that are ad-free, and they don't phone home every time that they get opened.

Best of my knowledge, yes. It just does not play well with some PC programs, like After Effects.

By far the best encoding for filesize and file quality is XviD. Unfortunately, not a lot of people have it. I've been told you can get near-DVD quality video at about 1MBPS.

xvid is indeed very good but as you said, you have to install the proper plugin and the vast majority of people have no idea where to get it and how to install it.

Web Video Walk Through

Could someone do a step by step to get video to web starting in FCP? I've got my video in FCP done and edited. Now I'd like to get the video on the web for family and friends to view. Thanks for the knowledge.

Tom:

Visit this link in the DVinfo forum: http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showthread.php?t=47730

Go to post #8. I give the detailed instructions you're looking for. Please note that some people encode video for the web in fewer steps. I have found that what I've listed works best for me in the Mac environment.

Good luck!

I'm fully aware of flash, windows media, QT, etc. But I need a method that is quick and outputs the video with the above listed.

Like I said I may be dreaming.

I imagine http://www.ourmedia.org/ is using quicktime on thier site, it has the slider play and pause.

I'm a PPro user, so can't say for sure about other software -- I'd suspect, though, that one render at a time is all most or all of the NLE's will do. My technique for video that will go to multiple resolutions or formats is to render an uncompressed DV AVI file to use as a source for all the other renders. Saves a lot of time to avoid having to re-do all the color corrections, compositing etc etc. for every format.

Does PPro stand for some software? Googling didn't tell me.

I'm also having QT issues. I had to submit to the DV7 challenge with .wmv

The file size is relatively small (30 MB) for a three and a half minute film. (Including all subtitles and credits)

Still working on getting QT to work properly.
