    Do we still need quicktime 7 install with MC 2018.4?

    Is it still a requirement to install quicktime to use Animation movs?

     

    If I don't have QT installed then I get a warning when opening MC that recommends I install quicktime, suggesting I definitely need it.

     

    On the AMA Plug-ins page it says:

    "QuickTime plug-in

    Directly access QuickTime movie files, including ProRes and many other codecs, without transcoding or re-wrapping files. This plug-in comes installed with Media Composer. "

     

    On the README_Avid_Editor_v18.4.pdf it states that "Quicktime is not supported on Windows 10", does that mean the QT plugin installed with avid?

     

    It would be good to clear up exactly what quicktime formats are supported by Media Composer without the need for QT 7 to be installed.

    You should still download and install Quicktime 7 using custom options, and ONLY installing the QUICKTIME essencials option.

    Thanks, still the same then.

     

    Guess I need to look into a better alternative to the Animation codec for alpha support!

    For ProRes at least I have just successfully setup a new workstation with Windows 10 Pro and MC2018.4 WITHOUT QuickTime.

    Linking of ProRes files works.

    Any linking with the avid generic plug in will work, but the avid plug in does not recognize all flavors of QuickTime files YET...

    also many import file types will not work w/o QuickTime installed.
