Quicktime, not exactly what I'd call "Quick" or "Timely" when it comes to exporting newly joined movie files... I don't exactly know What it's doing that makes it such an absurdly long process. But I know it doesn't take 7-10 hours just to join 2 files together... If the files where encoded differently in two different dimensions/formats or you just wanted to export a newly created file in another format then I would understand the need for it to do this. But there doesn't seem to be any intelligent media detection or even the option of turning off the device formatting or re-encoding... I've been looking about the MR forum, all the posts I've read so far conclude to another software you would need to buy. Is there not a plug-in/extension or mod to turn it off? It seems a bit silly to go out and buy another piece software to do the same job when you already have it on you computer just because one common sense option is missing. (encoding on/off) What about imovie? Where is the option to turn off re-encoding/formatting on that when you don't need it? I just need to join the two original files into one... I don't need to change the content of the files or rebuild them. Any suggestion would be much obliged because I'm face-palming at "the worlds most advanced Desktop OS with all the software you should need" and yet you can't even join a 2 part movie together in under a few seconds?
