PLEASE DISREGARD... Just found earlier thread on this topic

I apologize if there is a thread for this elsewhere, but if so a referral link would be great.

I understand that Mojave will be rendering QuickTime Pro obsolete. I currently use QT Pro to cut longer videos into "clips" that I can then use to build movies in iMovie or Final Cut.

Does anyone know of any software that will run on Mojave that I could use to cut clips from longer videos?

i'll be sad to see QT7 pro go as well; astonishing how long this version's been around. you can trim in the current QT, export... but if there's an alternative to QT7, am interested...

EDIT: which thread did you find?

For what do you need QT Pro anyway? Maybe that the is the question you need to ask so that someone can come up with an answer. As a simple media player QT is not really needed.

I use it for taking "clips" out of much larger movies that I then export into Final Cut or iMovie to create montages of customer feedback from market research.
[doublepost=1539447276][/doublepost]Call me paranoid, but has anyone used QT7 Pro running Mojave now that the update has been out for a while?

I still use it for opening image sequences.
Apple need to introduce this into qtx (seeing as all us pro users have paid for a license).

we used QT7 pro last year for an art installation, looping simple videos in slow motion; QT7 has a few good features that will be missed next year...

For quick editing, iMovie is overkill. I can drop a movie clip on QT7Pro and get right to work in a flash. If you would like a list of the things that QT7Pro can do, you have only to look at the discussion on Apple's community forum https://discussions.apple.com/thread/7648366?page=2. For example, in that discussion, user Jon Walker wrote...
"Nov 16, 2017 9:15 AM in response to Adam F
"Not to mention the more advanced QT7 "Pro" editing features like...
  1. Built-in "Annotation" editor
  2. Built-in Audio channel "Assignment" editor
  3. Built-in "Mask" editing options (None-no dithering, None-allow dithering, Blend, Straight Alpha, Straight Alpha Blend, Premultiplied White Alpha, Premultiplied Black Alpha, Composition) in "Clear" or "Invert" mode
  4. Built-in scaled layer "Composite" editing of up to 99 tracks
  5. Playback of composited content without having to "flatten" track data as required for QTX
  6. Built-in "Adjustments" filter (Alpha Gain, Brightness, Color Sync, HSL Balance, RGB Balance)
  7. Built-in "Blur" filter
  8. Built-in "Sharpen" filter
  9. Built-in "Special Effects" filter (Color Style, Color Tint, Film Noise, Lens Flare)
  10. Built-in Audio and/or Video alternative track playback switch editor based on Language selection
  11. Non-anamorphic and limited Anamorphic encoding options with or without letterboxing/pillaring
  12. "Open" playback codec user configuration
  13. "Open" export codec user configuration
"And this represents just a "Baker's Dozen" of my favorite advanced options not available in QTX and not mentioned above."

So, yes. A 64-bit replacement for this handy tool would be welcome. I'm still looking.

I totally agree about missing the old QT 7 Pro!!! Ity was my go-to app for video and had simple, on-yhe-fly capabilities that I loved. I held off on the Catalina upgrade until now. I'm mad hunting for an alternative that is comparable...
