    I have been using Pro on Leopard for a number of things. Used the cmd-J interface a lot. QT X on my new MBP doesn't seem to support a properties dialogue box, and I don't see a QT X Pro option.

    One thing I could do, for instance, was save out the audio file. Can't seem to do that in QT X.

    Am I missing something?

    No. Its been totally rewritten. Hoping apple comes out with a pro version soon.

    You are not missing a thing, but QT X is missing a lot. When it first showed up on the SL disk I thought Apple rushed it out... and a finished and polished QT X would soon follow. But now I don't know what to think. It this it? Is this the finished product? Hard to believe.

    This is a real shame. Sure, I could do it in iMovie, but it's horribly more complicated. QT Pro was a nice, lightweight app to be able to do some very quick yet useful actions.

    Snow leopard, still waiting

    Holy smokes, am I glad I haven't jumped to SL yet. :eek:
    The more I read about it, the more it seems like it missing all the nuances that make OS X, well, OS X. I love QT pro for the quick and dirty jobs that need doing. I might wait until 10.6.5 just like I did with leopard. :apple:

    Sorry to hear QT's messed up.

    Well, if you want to use Quicktime 7 , it's on the SL install DVD. ( and use your old Quicktime Pro license ) so you can have both

    I guess I'll have to run both for now, but it's a little lame that you need QTX and QT7 on the same machine/platform.

    Agreed. I'm guessing that this was a purposeful move to see if people would complain. Or the fuller featured version of QTX was not ready when SL was scheduled to be released so that had to take out unstable code and functionality.
