    What does DivX Pro do differently than Quicktime Pro? I am looking into purchasing DivX for storing my DVD collection. Honestly, I am just kind of lost in this department so some help would be great.

    DivX Pro is only good for making DivX files (ending with .divx or .avi) Quicktime pro can however read a lot more file types and evport to more and i feel that there are more options in the export settings in QT-pro.

    QT-Pro is basicly a VERY low vevel edit suite, cos you can chop and change movies, add and remove parts, then export to a lot of different file formats

    as far as i know DivX is basicly an mpeg4 converter, but because its a tweeked mpeg4 file with a wierd (wierd to quicktime anyway) encapsulation only computers with Divx can watch the files.

    hope this helps.
