FCP 5 and higher support that format and it is also included in iMovie 6. If you bought it the codecs would (should?) be available to QuickTime or you could edit and export from FCP or iMovie.Mac mini (G4 1.4), iMac G3 400, and Sony laptop using XP, Mac OS X (10.4.10), 10.3.9 OS 9.2

I installed iLife 08 and upgraded to latest version today.
The quicktime files still open to a white screen saying I do not have to correct codec installed.
The files work fine on my Laptop with FCS 2 problem is the person that needs access to the 1tb drive with all the files does not have FCS 2 and we cannot afford to buy another copy just for this.
I was hoping iMovie would fix the issue, it has not.dual 2.5 G5, Mac OS X (10.4.9), 2gigs ram - Radeon 9600 XT 128VRAM
The component should be installed in the HD/System/Library/QuickTime folder.
Compare the two machines to confirm its install.Mac mini (G4 1.4), iMac G3 400, and Sony laptop using XP, Mac OS X (10.4.10), 10.3.9 OS 9.2
Currently Being ModeratedNov 13, 2007 10:35 AM (in response to QuickTimeKirk)Thanks again. The two folders are vastly different.
I uninstalled QT and iMovie restarted and then reinstalled. There is an MPEG2 codec in the folder but not an IMX codec. In my known and working folder there are several codecs including PRORES and an IMX codec. I fear my only solution will be to install FCS just to gain access to those codecs.
The files are in MPEG IMX 525/60
Lesson learned. Any gains you get from 'new' techology are jus lost on the backend with 'compatibility'dual 2.5 G5, Mac OS X (10.4.9), 2gigs ram - Radeon 9600 XT 128VRAM
