    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.

    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.
