Forums Compression Techniques Getting Motion Jpeg Compression

    I have a client that needs videos compressed to Motion Jpeg to be shown in movie theatres. I have been able to do this before when I was running Quicktime 7 but now I’m running Quicktime 10.0 on a MAC OS X Version 10.6.4. I know before you were able to go into the System Preferences and enable the legacy encoders for quicktime. But now when I go there, there isn’t an option for Quicktime at all.

    Is there a way that I can still get the Motion Jpeg codec so I can go into Final Cut Pro or Compressor and pick it as an option?

    I would love to use another codec but the theatre only likes JPEG 2000 (which when I export doesn’t play smoothly) and Motion Jpeg.

    Any help or suggestions would be most helpful. Thanks!

    QT7 Pro Should still be on your system. I believe it gets put into the Utilities folder…also I recall an option on the OS update disc to install it.

    I hope this helps you a little, but, yes, Google is your friend. 🙂
