Apple does not read these postings. These are user to user forums whereas everyday folks post questions & offer help to each other.
"How do I fix this?"
Check out Klaus1 possible solution in the following thread:
"I can't find any info on reverting back to QT 10.3.1"
You really mean 7.3.1 right?
Do an archive and install of your OS from the OS disc. Stop at the QT upgrade you need.

Currently Being ModeratedJan 17, 2008 11:23 AM (in response to Dazbe)I work at TV station too. And was in shock that it stopped my renders. Our final product is in HD, and it's takes forever for renders. Apple please help, we assume that these updates will work with major programs, such as After Effects.G5, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
Currently Being ModeratedJan 17, 2008 1:11 PM (in response to Dazbe)Yes, this is a big issue over on the Adobe boards too.

Currently Being ModeratedJan 17, 2008 1:38 PM (in response to YO)The quickest workaround is to render an image sequence out of AE, then import into Quicktime Player Pro and export as a QT movie.MacBook 12", Mac OS X (10.4.11)

Currently Being ModeratedJan 17, 2008 5:46 PM (in response to Dazbe)It seems that Apple has deleted (again) one part of this discussion...
Whatever, the problem isn't solved at all.
I assume there is a HUGE problem with this QT update seeing the tons of post around the web.
This is certainly a permission problem again.
Hey Apple, wake up!
Not only AE rendering is dead with this update (see also the Adobe forums) but also many video softwares plus many other nonsense issues like in this thread:
Also you have so many issues in QT itself like the open image sequence which is totally out of control! And more, the "lost" or "sleepy inactivity" of many codecs.
Apple made a piece of crap with this one...
Hope a quick update is in the pipes.iMac G5 20", Mac OS X (10.4.11)
Currently Being ModeratedJan 17, 2008 6:21 PM (in response to Dazbe)Another one bites the render dust...
I'm running AE CS3 8.0.1 on a PPC 2.5Ghz Quad-Cores with 4GB RAM and running 10.5.1
I'll have to borrow a computer to finish my project because I'm not running into the trouble of reinstalling stuff to get a previous QT version. If there was only a simple way to just revert Quicktime. The last few updates of Quicktime were problematic. It's nice to upgrade to support new features on Apple products and softwares but not at the price of making professional third party softwares useless...PowerMac G5 Quad, Mac OS X (10.5.1)
Currently Being ModeratedJan 17, 2008 8:25 PM (in response to Dazbe)Thank God for Time Machine! It took me almost all of my night, but I was able to reconfigure my machine so that it would run the way it was running before the Quicktime update. It took a couple hours, but I was able to return to 7.3.1...Worth a try if you have time...MacPro, Mac OS X (10.5.1)

Currently Being ModeratedJan 18, 2008 6:57 AM (in response to Dazbe)!!!!....seems that apple is becoming more and more ignorant on 3rd party software compatibility.
I remember Quicktime vers 6 as a great tool.
But since version 7 there had been several serious bugs.
- since 7.0 looping a movie seamlessly has become a 'no option' and is still not fixed.
- since 7.2 Quicktime renders rgb colors like red (255/0/0) with one or two black channels with reduced quality in compression codecs.
- since 7.3.1. I surprisingly can't open swf files any more.
- now AE is popping up with with this paralyzing 'permission error' !
Apple, where are you going???

Currently Being ModeratedJan 18, 2008 8:34 AM (in response to Dazbe)I'm having the same problem, but I have found a temporary solution. I simply continue the rendering from the frame where the error occured. Say I have a render that starts at 00:00 and ends at 20:00, and I get an error at 11:09, then I go back to the composition I'm rendering and adjust the work area to start at 11:10 and end at 20:00. I then render this, and if I get the error again I repeat the process until the whole film is rendered. Then I import the parts into AE and place them in a new composition, one after the other, which I then render with the same codec.

Currently Being ModeratedJan 18, 2008 10:34 AM (in response to Dazbe)I too was bitten by this upgrade in AE. I was just about to do an Archive and Install when this was sent to me:
"I used Pacifist to downgrade QT to 7.3.1 on my Dual-G5, took less than
5 minutes including reboot. My first render tests indicates that the
problem is solved for me too. The only thing that popped up so far was
iTunes that informed me that I needed 7.4 to use movie rentals.
Still I can't say that doing the downgrade this way is safe. If you do
it, you do it on !!!your own risk!!! and make sure to backup critical
I went to VersionTracker and downloaded this software and then to Apple's downloads site and downloaded the appropriate QT 7.3.1 installer (update). I then ran the Pacifist program and chose the QT 7.3.1 pkg file and it did the rest. I am up and running again with 7.3.1 and all is well, so far.
I am not endorsing this product, nor am I saying you will get the same results, or that it won't mess your stuff up.. just that it worked for me. I have to say, 10 minutes worth of this was much better than the Archive and Install route.
