    On the Leopard Quick Look demo movie, it mentions that Quick Look can play QuickTime movies in full screen. That's one of only two major features QuickTime Pro has over just-plain-QuickTime. (The other is editing.) Does this mean Apple will stop charging for a 'Pro' version of QuickTime, and just have one version?

    Discuss. :p

    That was my first hope when I read about Quick Look. I'm hoping pretty strongly!

    Encoding for the iPod is also present in iTunes 7 yet they still continued to support Quicktime Pro. Who knows, really?

    Leopard has full screen built in to QT..There will still be a pro for editing.

    You can use iTunes to display full screen video now. Quicktime Pro still is good for converting formats and editing video and audio.

    The pro idea has always been annoying - even more strange is the fact that there's a separate mpeg-2 'component' - yet another tax for some.

    while i think full screen mode should come standard, QT Pro is still handy for converting formats, extracting movie/sound, etc.

    How about, recording video and/or sound, changing aspect-ratio, colour, hue, brightness, exporting between tons of different formats both video, still and sound-files?

    Hopefully non-pro users will now be able to watch film fullscreen but QT-pro is actually a fairly usefull tool for anyone doing video-work...

    agreed, changing aspect ratios is another thing i like about QT Pro.

    i thought i was stooopid for paying up, but now i'm actually glad.

    I always buy the pro version but it does seem daft in this day and age that the features aren't included as part of the OS. Here's hoping.
