    Hi all those hardcore Apple collectors - I was wondering if any of you could help me out?

    I wish I had done better in downloading Apple's old hardware gallery qtvr movies. Does anyone know if there is an archive around or if they have a backup?

    I have searched everywhere on the internet and used www.archive.org/ as much as possible but there are some that are simply not available anymore anywhere on the internet. Here are the ones I'm looking for:

    I may have some of these.

    It'll take a while, but I'll have a look thru my... ahem.. archives.

    EDIT:

    Found:
    emac_nov2002_qtvr480.mov
    may2002_ibook_qtvr480.mov

    I'm sure I have some others archived on CD & DVD.

    Hmmm,

    probably this is easiest.

    Let me know when you have them, and I'll remove them.

    Looked thru my collection and have found the following:


    20th Anniversary Macintosh (unsure of original filename)
    030_005.mov (pb3400 QTVR for interest's sake)
    aig.mov (Apple Icon Garden - in case you've never seen it)
    imac_dots_480.mov (Blue Dalmation Slot Load iMac)
    imac-qtvr.mov (Original Bondi 233 iMac)
    mar20_cinema_hd_qtvr480a.mov
    pmg4_aug2002_qtvr480.mov (Mirror Drive Doors G4)
    qtvr_pmg4_480_a.mov (which is actually a Digital Audio G4 - 4 PCI Slots)
    yosemite480.mov (G3 Blue&White Tower)

    I have many more, but you've not requested them so I assume you have them.

    I'd love to know if this project will be available anywhere as I don't have all of them myself. I'm more focused on TVCs.

    Same location as previous but "2" instead of "1" ;)

    I'm also interested in this project of yours. I have a few of these, but I don't remember which ones. I may have to dig them out now.

    Mactech68 & Intell - I'll definitely share my results with you since you guys have shown interest and have helped out. I will get my QTVR files together and post them online for you to look at and download if you see any you don't have. I also have one of the most complete Apple Ads and Product Intro movie collections I know of that you can check out. It may take a day or two since I'm in the middle of my work week with 12hr shifts. I'll keep you updated.

    When I signed up with MacRumors I checked the option for people to be able to e-mail me. I'm not sure how it works but if you know - send me a quick message and maybe I can send the link that way.

    I originally got my list together from this page:
    http://homepage.mac.com/takacam01bigd/ads/index.html#QTVR

    I tried contacting the guy to do some trades but got no reply. He lists the The Twentieth Anniversary Macintosh as a 320x320 (3.2 MB) file and it looks like it has a different view angle than the one I received from you Mactech68, so there still may be another version out there.

    Two Last Things To Note:

    1. I think Apple has permanently has given up on using QTVR for their products. See my other post here.
    I have the latest ipod Nano, iPod Touch, Macbooks, and iPhone 3GS movie files before they were converted to HTML 5 360 view. I never saw the iPod Classic, iPad, nor iPhone 4 released in QTVR format.

    2. I thought I remember a G4 tower QTVR that when rotated also had a gold Optical Disc spit out of the DVD Drive. I thought it was with the G4 towers that first had the DVD burner, however I may be mistaking this with the 8600 Tower which also spits out a disc. If anyone does know of a QTVR movie like this let me know.

    I'm pretty sure that's all I have, unless I have some "sort later" folders somewhere.... but where? ;)

    I recall a PowerBook (1400?) having a gold disk and the 8600 or G3 Minitower having a gold disk.

    One day, I must copy all my TVCs and videos to a single drive and sort them. They are reasonably sorted, but not as well as I'd like. :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the link. It may be a copy of the TAM VR video I'm looking for, only its converted into Flash so you can't really control it like a true QTVR file. you can only play it one way. I'm hoping someone would still have the QTVR version though.

    Check the comments below the video. There's a 500x500 QTVR of the TAM as a zip file. Not a 320x320 but hey, nice all the same.

    :)

    my bad, good catch. Wish I could get the top one as an original too. I'll try joining the site and see if they still have it.

    I will see if I can find it.

    Archive

    Can everyone who has QTVR files of Apple devices please give them to me. I plan to start an online archive where people can view and download QTVRs of Apple products. I am a 11 year old Apple geek who wasn't around to copy them back then and didn't even now what QTVR was but now I do and I want all the files I can get. :apple: on! This is my first post.
