    A reader sent along these quicktime movies of Mac OS X 10.1 (MacWorld Preview) running on OS X. The machine in question is apparently a 500mhz iBook.

    Movie 1
    Movie 2

    Like I need more teasing!

    Now I'm really hyped for the 10.1 update to OS X!

    Too bad these movies were so small, it made it hard to get a real feel for the overall look. But they did show how fantastic the update will be for all of us.

    This is going to be a tough few weeks of waiting. <g>

    yep


    Note, there was probably some speedhit taken with saving a QT movie under OS X...

    but still, not too bad for a 500mhz G3.

    Movie capture

    The movies in question were captured with Snapz Pro X -- at that size, there probably isn't too much of a speed hit (tho there is some, of course).

    If he tried to do a full-screen movie, there certainly would be a speed-hit, and additionally, the movies would be so huge I doubt you'd want to download 'em. Even with modern compressors like Sorenson, movies take up a lot of storage space.

    Well, all-in-all it looks quite promising. However, the window resizing still needs some work.

    hey andrew,

    good to see you here...

    Yep, readers should take a look at Snapz Pro... I haven't used it myself, but the above movies are impressive, and sounds like a very "Mac OS X" app.

    Andrew - don't know if you remember me... I remember chatting with you a lot on AOL... in fact this was while you were coding the original Snapz..

    I was working on an arkanoid clone (spasm), but I never finished it.

    That was pretty impressive. Were those large brigtness and sound things in the middle of the screen from the keyboard buttons?

    Wow

    Congratulations, all I see is a white QT box that weight 1.3 MB without any sound. Let's see what is going on now with my Explorer.

    one thing Id like to see is some user pressure placed on apple to make teh update downloadable. Sure it may be big, but for us academic users thats not an issue. I really object to Apples definition of 'free' sometimes and wonder wether a little bit of user pressure wouldnt go a long way. I can guarantee that it will be around 20 quid here, which is a fair few beer vouchers!

    Same here. Maybe Netscape will load them correctly... Sigh, life on an NT machine (at work).

    Had to update Quicktime to 5 with the Quicktime Updater app. Those movies are great, if small!

    Re: Wow

    You just need the latest Sorenson codec. Under OS X, open up your System Preferences, click on QuickTime, then click on the Update tab. then click "Update Now" and it should download the codec you need for you.

    Under OS 9, do the equivalent.

    movies

    what the **** was that. i think i nearly puked trying to watch the periscope affect of using mac os x 10.1. the person who captured those should be shot. and it does not bode well for snapz pro X.

    brightness/volume status

    from the short time i got to play with 10.1 at mwny, those translucent volume controls were from the keyboard keys. unfortunately they only showed 10.1 on powermac g4s at mwny, so i didn't get to verify that they got powerbook keys working the same way. hopefully they do.

    Stupid question...

    What's up with the "big bounces" while IE is launching?

    Re: movies

    How does one person's screen capture decision not bode well for Snapz Pro X? Take a look at one of these movies (recorded on a rather aging 350mhz blue & white g3 tower):

    Genie animation captured: http://www.AmbrosiaSW.com/cgi-bin/custom/imagedisplay.pl?image=spx_genie.mov

    iTunes animation w/sound: http://www.AmbrosiaSW.com/cgi-bin/custom/imagedisplay.pl?image=spx_itunes.mov

    The person who made those videos chose a small area so that the download size wouldn't be huge, and so that the video capture wouldn't lag the screen display. Even with modern codecs like Sorenson, if he captured full-screen, you'd be downloading a 50mb file instead of a 1.2mb one. Seems like a good tradeoff to me...

    Snapz Pro X offers a number of camera modes; the one you see here is merely one of them, and was a good choice to create a small video that people could easily download and check out.

    When the world has a T1 to their door, bring on the full screen 20fps video! :)

    Sizing is getting faster yet

    Newer builds are faster at sizing and app launching (even Omniweb does it in one bounce).

    And this on a slower machine.
