Apparently they did fix the issue, but as Andrew said, its best to wait.

I'm still not going to upgrade haha.
February 6th, 2008 @ 3:38 pm
I'm never going to upgrade to that one. It always pops up on my Mac asking for
an upgrade.

YES, I updated quicktime on Monday and I have not have any problems, I have made many render tests and it works perfectly with Adobe after effects cs3

The issue is fixed you can update now and of course don't forget to update afters too

=D

I HAVE to update. Quicktime keeps crashing my Firefox.
February 6th, 2008 @ 5:49 pm
Also, for us Mac users, the new AE upgrade combined with the latest QT Makes AE Leopard compatible (finally) but, I'm waiting to hear for sure.

Yes and no. Rending works, but Soreson is still missing. This was the first time I opened after effects in almost a week. Sad times it is.

wait! i'm silly. After ready some more post I found this... just in case you were missing some of your compressing things for your rendering stuff.

open up quick time
1. go under QuickTime preferences
2. go to the advanced tab
3. under media encoding, check the box to enable encoding using legacy codecs

I'm a happy camper now. I still wouldn't update if I could take it all back, hahah.

FOR EVERYBODY, YES THE PROBLEM IS 100% FIXED AND IF YOU ARE MISSING SOME OF YOUR COMPRESSION SETTINGS AND CODECS JUST FOLLOW WHAT JONATHAN SAID:

"in case you were missing some of your compressing things for your rendering stuff.

Did a few renders and it seems fine. It even seems to fix a small bug I had with my Magic Bullet Looks! Hurrah!

I AM A TV COMMERCIAL PRODUCER AND DIRECTOR FOR FOX5 LAS VEGAS, THANKS FOR THE INFO AND LINK, I JUST INSTALLED THE DOWNLOAD AND IT SOLVED MY PROBLEM, I WAS HAVING THE (-54 NO ENOUGH.... BLAH, BLAH ,BLAH, ERROR. )
AND NOW I AM BACK TO FULL SPEED AND I CAN RENDER ALL ELEMENTS AND EVERY SEQUENCE I PUT ON MY RENDER QUEUE!
February 7th, 2008 @ 8:38 am
macworld.com confirms that it fixes the problem.
February 7th, 2008 @ 8:51 am
I know this isn't a after effect help forum. But I have a problem with previewing HD Material on my mac. I have it set up to 720p to view on my second monitor but it plays back at around 7.5 frames when it should be 24. My graphics card doesn't support openGL, and i think that is the problem. any advice?

I'm running a dual 2 GHz PowerPC G5 at 4.5 GB with a ATI Radeon 9600
February 7th, 2008 @ 9:09 am
Well, they still didn't change the Vista x64 bug (the black bar). But other than that, it seems to work OK.

Yep, can confirm that 7.4.1 runs smoothly and fixes the issue.
February 7th, 2008 @ 10:09 am
figured it out... If i take off the second display and only have it on my main display only, it plays in real time
February 7th, 2008 @ 10:31 am
The issues is fixed as it seem, I got new Firefox crashes when watching a embedded quicktime movie. Beside that rendering works.

i installed it a few hours ago and it changed nothing. same problems with adobe products.
February 7th, 2008 @ 11:15 am
I did not have a problem, with that quick time and rendering, but the new version of itunes that was comming with quicktime (7.6) Was awfull. Slowing down all the computer when itunes was running. Apparently i was not the only one having that problem. No choices but to downgrade itunes.

I'm expecting the new ad:
-Hello i'm a pc.
-Hello i'm a mac, and i'm so happy to have a new version of a product that will allow apple to make more money by the rental of movies, that i release a new version of a software that is buggy!

So, DON'T upgrade iTunes? Is there a way to only get the update of iTunes without QuickTime?
February 7th, 2008 @ 4:34 pm
to jumptheshark101:
Hmm... I think that they're still two separate installation sequences even though they're in one package - eg. they'll ask you to install iTunes--> installs iTunes, --> asks you to install QT-->installs QT. I think you can stop it then.

However, I think you may be able to use Pacifist (http://www.charlessoft.com/) to install just one. I used it to downgrade QT to 7.3 to fix the rendering issues, worked a treat.
February 7th, 2008 @ 4:56 pm
i'm so glad I didnt update..
February 7th, 2008 @ 6:06 pm
Okay, I'm taking the plung. Will report.

HEY ANDREW - Are you still planning on releasing the TUTORIAL DVD? Sure would be nice! Any feeling how soon? That plus TWITCH would be a nice COMBO deal!

Just because I think this is very usefull and I don't know where to post this information:

I discovered this today: http://www.acvt.com.au/research/videotrace/

Maybe you will be able to make us a tutorial about it one day?
February 8th, 2008 @ 1:49 am
OK, I installed Leopard, then the new QT. I ran several tests and all is well.

February 8th, 2008 @ 3:07 am
All fine, working like a charm.
February 8th, 2008 @ 3:10 am

I've run into some issues with Quicktime running on Tiger. Movies take a really long time to start playing and the program crashes whenever I try to open an additional file. Also more and more .avi files are going out of sync part, or all the way through even though they play fine in VLC.

And a side note, I have not been able to use Front Row on my computer since the last Tiger upgrade to 10.4.11. It freezes up and stalls at every click you make. So unhappy am I.
February 8th, 2008 @ 3:46 pm
AECS3 Pro on Mac 10.5.1 works GREAT with QT 7.4.1...MAJOR issues with 7.4, but they fixed it with 7.4.1

February 8th, 2008 @ 9:35 pm
I refuse to upgrade! my version of quicktime doesnt have any issues with cs3 (bwahaha!)

need to ditch dial-up!

Just to let you know the full treatment:

Did a normally troublesome render - Three videos queued, each with different codecs and effects:
Vid1 had Remove Grain with 6 passes, glow & Force Motion Blur
Vid 2 had Force Motion Blur, CC Particle World
Vid 3 had Remove Grain with 3 passes and Vector Blur with some funky settings.

All videos were in HD and were being rendered down to half resolution, QT using Photo-JPEG compression at medium quality. There was about 15 minutes of footage all up.

Took 10 hours, but rendered fine, so I can say that 7.4.1 works as far as most people will be pushing it.

I updated to the latest QuickTime player about 2 weeks ago and now nothing but problems on both of my PC's. Now QuickTime won’t even launch and I can’t view any pages with QuickTime files and IE will report that it encountered an error and needs to close. I wasn’t able to open Adobe Fireworks until I went into the C:\Program files and deleted QuickTime all together. Why delete it you ask? Because an error kept coming up every time I tried to remove it from the Add/Remove programs. Nice going Apple!

I installed After Effects and then later installed Quicktime. After Effects cannot import .MOV files. How can I get after effects to recognize quick time? Thanks.
