Back with part, uh 6 or 7 of my movie making saga. I went back to square one, reinstalled OS X and the orginal apps, ran the 10.2.4 update and did a full reimport of the video. Still a problem, but the solution this time is to update to Quick time 6.1.1 its running now guess we shall see soon. I probably want have results til in the morning. I don’t really know why I’m putting this much work into making it work, it should be so much simplier. I don’t know if i’m gonna be able to keep bragging about how good macs are, i’m almost back to the mac haters guild.
