    Hello all,

    I've got a lot of .mov files I'd like to join together, they are separate chapters of an overall tutorial.

    Is there someway to join the .mov files, yet keep the files separate as chapters of the one file?

    I've got Quicktime Pro if that helps, though if there is another tool out there, I'd like to know about it. I know Quicktime will let me to it the copy paste way but I'd rather not do it that way as there are 100's of files.

    Thanks if you can help.

    DVD Studio Pro can do it perfectly.

    But that is expensive....

    Is there any tutorials out there for doing this with DVD Studio Pro? Also, will it be able to save the final file as a .mov rather than a DVD or similar file?

    Thanks!

    All the information you need comes with the manual.

    As for creating a .mov file, that isn't possible. If that is the route you want to take then you will need to merge all the files into one with markers.

    What is your end goal?

    hey,

    just came across this and i had a similar problem a while ago..

    there's an app called 'metadata hootenanny' which will let you split movies into chapters or join movies etc..

    i had a brief play with it and it works pretty well. i dont know the url, but just google it:
