Quicktime Pro X with Final Cut Studio?
October 12, 2009 05:25PM
I tried transcoding a video in Quicktime X, and apparently, the option to export is no longer available. I'm guessing that I only have Quicktime Player X and not Quicktime Pro X. Doesn't the installation of Final Cut Studio include Quicktime Pro?

My theory is that since I installed Final Cut Studio 3 when I was running OS 10.5.6 and then later installed Snow Leopard without doing a clean install, Final Cut Studio installed Quicktime Pro 7, which was then overwritten by Quicktime X when I installed Snow Leopard.

By that logic, if I re-install Final Cut Studio now that I have Snow Leopard installed, it should give me the license for Quicktime Pro X, right?

Anyone have an ideas?

You sure QT7 is not still hiding on your HD- it should be.

I couldn't find the forehead smack emoticon. Somehow, Quicktime Pro 7 got thrown into Utilities.

Thanks, Noah. I feel like a dummy.

Here's another issue along the same lines...

When trying to bring transcode a .VOB file from a DVD using MPEG Streamclip, it tells me that I have to buy the $30 Quicktime MPEG-2 Component.

Never before installing Snow Leopard did I have to buy a special plug-in to transcode material from a DVD in MPEG Streamclip.

Is there a new free piece of software that I can use to get material from DVD straight to ProRes without having to go to some highly compressed format first?

In case anyone is having the same problem, this is from Squared 5's website:



The Snow Leopard upgrade DVD released on August 28 may wipe the content of the /System/Library/QuickTime folder during the upgrade process, and delete your MPEG-2 Playback Component installed in that folder. To use MPEG-2 files with MPEG Streamclip you have to reinstall the MPEG-2 component or restore it from a backup copy.

If you are going to upgrade to Snow Leopard

Open the /System/Library/QuickTime folder and drag the QuickTimeMPEG2.component file to your desktop to make a copy of it. Then upgrade to Snow Leopard. When the upgrade is complete, open the /System/Library/QuickTime folder again and move the QuickTimeMPEG2.component file from the desktop to the /System/Library/QuickTime folder (enter your administrator password if necessary).

If you already upgraded to Snow Leopard

You have to reinstall or restore your MPEG-2 Playback Component.

If you have a Time Machine backup of your System folder, then open the /System/Library/QuickTime folder, enter Time Machine and go back in time until you see the QuickTimeMPEG2.component file; select that file and then click Restore.

If you purchased the MPEG-2 Playback Component from the Apple Online Store, then you probably still have the DMG file that contains the installer. Use Spotlight to search for "QuickTimeMPEG2.dmg": if you find a file with that name, double-click it and then in the disk image, double-click the installer package for Intel Macs.

If you purchased the MPEG-2 Playback Component from the Apple Online Store but you can't find the QuickTimeMPEG2.dmg file, you can download the file again from the Apple Online Store if you remember the Apple ID used when you originally purchased it (if you forgot your Apple ID then go to Apple iforgot). Visit the Apple Online Store, click on "Account" in the store menu, then click "Downloadable Software Purchases," enter your Apple ID and password, and click the link to the QuickTime MPEG-2 Playback Component to download it again.

If you obtained the MPEG-2 Playback Component from the installation of Final Cut Studio, then you can reinstall it again from the Final Cut Studio DVD. Insert the DVD and use the Finder's Go menu > Go To Folder... command to get to the /Volumes/Final Cut Studio/Installer/Packages/ folder inside the DVD. Locate the QuickTimeMPEG2.pkg or the QuickTimeMPEG2Pro.pkg installer: double-click it to reinstall the MPEG-2 component.
