Simple Editing Of Qucktime Movie

Question

I am a novice here, but experienced programmer and PC user.

I just installed Roxio Creator 2011, and I was hoping I can use it for a very simple task -

delete 30 seconds from the middle of a 4 minute QuickTime movie.

But I seem to be stuck - I opened Roxio Creator, clicked on "Add Video", browsed to my movie,

and when I clicked on it I got the error message "The file you are trying to use requires

QuickTime 7.04 or higher, and has not been added". Can someone please tell me how to add and

edit this movie? Roxio Creator advertises all sorts of fancy features and functions, but my

needs seem pretty simple here. Thanks.

So do you have Quicktime 7.04 installed as is required to by C2011?

 

You could try changing the mov extension to mpg. That worked in some earlier versions of Roxio

Yes, I have a later version of QT which I just downloaded today. Does C2000 not support QuickTime?

I'll try the other suggestion as well, thanks.

You posted in Creator 2011; is that what you have?

 

Did you reboot after installing the newest version of QT? Did you try installing QT 7.04? They may have been an unanticipated change in QT so that higher then 7.04 won't work. Search this site; I think I remember a similar issue and solution.

 

The supported input file formats are:

 

Input Formats

  • Video: AVI, DV, HDV, DV-AVI, MPEG-1/2/4, MPEG2-HD, DVD-Video, IFO/VOB, XviD, DVR-MS, TiVo, ASF, MOV, WMV, QuickTime, 3GP, MPEG2 Transport Stream, AVC (H.264), AVCHD, MKV
    Audio: Audio CD, MP3, WAV, WMA, Dolby® Digital AC-3, AAC, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, M4A, MP4, Playlists (WPL, ASX, M3U, PLS, XSPF)
  • Image: MPO, JPG, PNG, TIFF, BMP, GIF

Tell us again where you got the QT files from? Any possibility that there is DRM protection on it?

 

Change that QT file to mp4; perhaps that will work.

That worked - thanks for your help. Rebooting after upgrading QT.

Now, can you give me a quick instruction on how to delete the middle 30 seconds of my four minute movie?

I loaded a Quicktime movie of about 4 minutes, and deleted about 20 seconds. Now how to I save/export and be left with a standard movie file that I can email or upload? When I clicked "export", it created a 10KB file that is obviously not a self-contained movie file but some sort of project file. Thanks.

Did you select save or save as rather than export? If you navigate to what you saved, what is the extension. If it is dmsm, then you saved a project file only. If you clicked output then export, what format /option did you select? There are many and perhaps you selected a very compressed , low resolution and small sized one. Make sure you select "all" and then select fromn the drop down list. You selection depends on what you want to do with the file.
