I have just discovered that the latest version of quicktime
Pro (7x) does not have the prelaod option when exporting a movie.
If you have markers embedded in your quicktime movie that you want
to use as que points in Director you can no longer do this as you
MUST have the preload setting enabled in Quicktime Pro when
exporting the movie. Director will throw an error when you try to
import the quicktime file warning you that the file is not
preloaded and the que point will be disabled for that file.
Has anyone else upgraded to Quicktime Pro 7?
The only solution that I can find is to install Quicktime 6x
BUT I haven't got the installer and Apple do not have it on their
site, looks that it was money mis-spend when I upgraded to version
I faced the same problem one month ago. At the end I decided
to use flash. It has the possibility to work with cue points in a
natural way. One solution I explored with Director was to do my own
cue points controls. Basically, I got a list of my cue points, I
used the old CoolEdit to define and export the list, then I checked
the time of the movie in a loop (exitFrame) and I compared the time
of the movie with the list of CP to trigger the events. But as I
told you, I decided to use Flash
