    Clueless QT Guy Seeks Windows Codec Advice

    Dave LaRonde Level 6



      For the first time in my life, I now have to make make movies other than Quicktimes.  I have NEVER had to deal with AVIs, Windows Media... what have you.  I've been a 100% Quicktime maker and user, and I have no clue where to start.  None.


      I'll need a lossless codec, a very good codec similar to ProRes 422, and a codec that supports alpha channels.  Both the client and I run Win 7 if it makes a difference in the choice.


      Do you have any good suggestions for codecs and the media container that enclose them?  I don't mind a little reaearch, just point me in the right direction.
