  • My quick time wont play on earlier Macs

    Probably quite obvious but if I export a Full Res QT movie out of my FCP 6 on a Quad Core Intel Mac OSX 10.5.2 with QT 7.4.5, it wont play on earlier model G5 and laptop powerbooks

    Can this be resolved with a QT upgrade on the part of the previous computers?

    Advice appreciated.

    You would need QT 7, most likely... kind of hard to say since you don't indicate what it is you are exporting.

      Thanks Exporting Full Res QT from XDCAM

      Pardon if you got multiple messages. Exporting from timeline current settings of XDCAM 1080p24.

      Just for them to playback on their computers as a self-contained movie without having to load a dvd etc. Strictly for play back

      what do you think? should I "down convert" it to DV NTSC QT movie?

      Thanks again for advice.

        No, leave it 1080p24 or 720p and export out H.264. Make sure the other machines have QT 7.

          Totally go to NTSC DV. The XDCAM EX codec is state of the art- only going to work on Macs with the very latest OS and QT updates.

            OK, well I guess I still don't understand the intent. I thought the intention was to get the footage to play on a wide(r) variety of systems.
