Hopefully this question has an easy answer. I have downloaded a LOT of different quicktimes that seem to be layered. The files will be quite large (which implies they are longer in length; 10 minutes +) but the quicktime window will only run through the first minute of the movie.

Sometimes, when the the movie runs through to the end of the first minute and I move the quicktime cursor back to the beginning of the timeline, I will actually move the the next "segment" and can continue viewing the rest ... but this is usually not dependable and I think there must be a better way of going about this ... in other words ... How do I "unlayer" the file so I can view the whole thing beginning to end?????

I've looked around and done searches on Quicktime but haven't been able to find anything that even describes this particular aspect of Quicktime.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

In QuickTime Pro you can use command-J to bring up an inspection and attribute editing window. I believe that will allow to see a list of the layers. I'm not sure about extending the timeline and moving them though.

This primitive QuickTime watermarking technique describes what I think you mean.

Have you got a link to some small sample we can look at.
