    QT Pro to .avi Pixelated??
    Hello Ladies and Gentlemen, first time viewer and poster!

    Here's my 2 questions (I did scroll all 5 pages first before posting this question)

    When I convert a QT Pro .mov clip to a .wmv, it only gives me about 10 seconds of play??

    And secondly, if i convert a QT Pro .mov file to a .avi file, it gives me MUCH MUCH more time, however the .avi now becomes very pixelated?

    Whats happening here? If i would of known this, I wouldnt of purchased QT Pro.

    I have a dinosaur computer. A desktop G4 with 2x 500mhz with the Tiger OS

    thanks!

    Can't help directly with your QTPro issue, never used it as a conversion tool.

    I'd recommend trying ffmpegx (free) or Visual Hub (not free).

    Both are very capable of doing the conversion you require.
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .

    as mrplow said.

    But you will only get time limited WMV files unless you but the full version of Flip4Mac

    AVIs will convert fine tho

    Thanks for the reply guys,

    I will attempt to reply to all in one shot here:
    Again, I purchased Quicktime Pro so I can edit movies, then send them over the net.

    After making a movie in QTPro (orginally from a "codec" .avi file) , it would save it in .mov format. This will only play back once. For some strange reason, after this I can never play it again, unless I convert the new film to .wmv or .avi.

    If I choose .avi, then I will only get maybe 10 seconds of play. However, if I go with .avi, then I will get much longer play, BUT it gets very pixelated

    How can I get it to clear up?

    1- Volta,

    I make my movies in Quicktime Pro and am converting them to wmv or avi. I'm using OS Tiger


    2- Mr. Plow,

    I attempted to DL the FFmpegx player, but a window on my desktop pops up saying that this is not a recognizeable file. I have tried and was unsuccessful from a few different sites now.


    3- Louishen,

    Can I still edit movies in Flip4Mac?


    4- Fash,

    I DL'd the Dvix player to convert. They want $20. Can this take my converted pixelated .avi vids made in QTPro and clear it up?

    Thank you all very much for your replys

    you cannot edit movies in flip4mac, its a codec extension for quicktime, not a standalone editor

    But you will need to download Flip4mac and perian to extend quicktime's codec support

    FFmpegx is a conversion tool, not a player, and you will need to download its other components (see its home page you will need mencoder and mpeg2enc components). Once done you can convert a mov file to divx or avi

    oh, man, i'm an idiot, i didn't even see that you were using QT pro, sorry for the confusion, i don't know what to tell you, i've never encountered that problem, i typically deal with mov and divx files and use Final Cut Pro. sorry big guy.
