Technical question?

Post by deathvalleydan » Fri Nov 17, 2006 8:33 am

How would one go about uploading and editing a .mov file? Nothing seems to open a .mov file outside of the quicktime/apple programs

I think you can download Quicktime at their site. However, to edit a Quicktime movie you have to buy the full blown program.

Quicktime came with my Kodak camera, but it's only capable of viewing the videos you shoot with the camera, sort of like Quicktime Lite.

If you Google for "converting .mov files" you'll find ways of converting to one of the other common video formats. Some are shareware and others are more commercial. Look at "Allok MOV Converter 2.0.2" as an example.

I can't find any free ones, just 50% conversion, and other gimmicks getting one to buy the product.

I didn't expect to use the video of my Kodak camera at first, but then would use it occasionally, especially for panorama shots. I was very dissappointed when I found that it was in Quicktime format and that the Windows Media couldn't run it, since WM has editing tools built into it. I would use the video more often on trips and then stitch the scenes together to form a single video if I could use WM, but I'm not about to buy the full blown QT program for that capability for what little video I shoot with the Kodak. On most trips I usually have my videocamera with me anyway.

It may not be Quicktime, it may just be an MPEG-4 encoding. Sony uses that on their newer cameras and calls them .mov
