    Great stuff, thanks a lot.

    I do have a couple of questions.

    Could you post pics of the rest of the menus so we can see what else might have been added/removed.

    It looks like the Export menu is gone, has it been added to save as, or is there any evidence that export plugins still work?

    Is the Quicktime pref pane still in System Preferences?

    Do cut and paste still work in the edit timeline?

    Thanks again.

    Can you still right-click on say a movie trailer from the Apple website and save it to your computer once it's finshed downloading in the browser?

    This was previously a Pro-only feature that use all the time.

    I have not managed to get any sort of cutting or pasting or copying done in that trim interface. All you seem to be able to do is choose start point, end point and click trim. Thats it, its basically a glorified iPhone 3GS video editor now. The screenshots I'm gonna post as soon as I wake up. Typing this as I'm about to fall into bed as its past 5 in the morning already and I spent all night working :p

    You can't "right click", but if you choose 'save' then you can save it without any problems :)

    So I can still save the ads and trailers off the Apple website onto my computer? Good.

    Is there any way to keep the controls on the screen when playing something windowed (mainly would like a progress bar to see how far through a show you are)

    When viewing full screen it looks good to have nothing else on screen, but i like to see some info if its windowed

    The full screen mode is similar to VLC player. (Which I love by the way... it plays anything).

    Probably why they call it "trim". :D

    So, are they going to have the QT Pro version of this thing also?

    Edit: Oops... thanks for the screenshots!. Somebody else posted a short movie clip here made with the recorder. Pretty cool.

    Why on earth did they remove the ability to view the movies in half or double size?

    InkMaster- Thanks for the pics and descriptions.


    Could you tell me about the Save for Web option. How does this work? Are there different compression options? Never used Quicktime Pro, so don't know if that was a feature already or not... Is it like Handbrake? Any thoughts you could share are appreciated!

    It works just like it did in previous versions of Quicktime, at least I don't see any changes. Basically what it does is it generates multiple versions of the same movie, a different version for iPhone on Wifi, iPhone on edge, etc, and a reference file. When you want to embed that file somewhere, you just embed the reference file and then when someone tries playing it, it dynamically detects what device they're using and how much bandwidth if available to them, and based on that starts playing a different file. The reason for all of this is just to simplify the watching experience for the end user, at the expense of slightly more work for the publisher.

    Hmm, I wonder if the new UI that was supposed to ship with Snow Leopard was like QTX's, with the borderless windows and hover-only UI...

    Imagine if Safari were like that.

    Shame, looks like it's really been dumbed-down in comparison to Quicktime Pro. Apple's done that a lot lately, like replacing the ExpressCard slot with an SD card slot (don't worry, I won't rant here ;))

    Question: can you capture video from an iSight?

    Yes, and not only iSight but you can pick any camera you want as long as its recognized by the system obviously - so any Firewire camera, some USB ones etc.

    Actually I found the bigger/smaller options which replaced it alot more useful. You get a lot more control and it works just as well.

    Oh I agree. Apple's been gettin rid of "Pro" features. It's sad since the "Pro" customers were Apple's first, and loyal fans.

    Where have the preferences in the menu gone in QuickTime X? How do I make the movie start automatically when it loads? Or make all new movies open in the same window? This is annoying!
