Do you know what application you used to create those movies? Or was there some special hardware or editing system that was just using the QuickTime container?TiGig, Mac OS X (10.4.3), Giggahertz, Giggaram, Giggagood!
Currently Being ModeratedJan 23, 2006 10:54 AM (in response to Kyn Drake)Yes, the software was Strata Studio Pro 1.1 to I think 3.0. When you would render an animation, you would configure it to save as a QuickTime Movie. It had been working just fine with the QuickTime players (early versions) while on my PowerMac 7100 and Mac Clone and I think my G4 when running in classic mode. But it seems that since its been such a long time and QuickTime has evolved somewhat with its newer versions, some of these old formats are pretty much dropped and no longer supported.
Thanks for your reply!G4 & Pentium

Not that it helps you in your troubles but I understand some of the "bureaucracy" issues you're now facing.
The application "creator" is MooV but the file format (extension) should be .mov
They may have been created using proprietary video codecs and may only open using the software that created them.
I can still open files (QT formats like .mov) that I created using the first version (3) of QT Pro and even older (QT 2) files with version 7.
Back then QuickTime was free. But the created files were really relying on third party codecs in many cases.
I'm sure, somewhere in D.C., (probably a public school) you can find an old Mac that can open and view the files.
The trouble comes at export.
They were probably 120X90 pixel videos that used IMA 4:1 or A-Law audio compression. I would also guess that that they used a video codec from Indeo.Mac mini, iMac G3 400, and a little used PC running Window 2000 server, Mac OS X (10.4.4), 10.3.9 OS 9.2
