EditableMovie Deprecated. Replaced with ?
Date: 26.09.11 17:25 (Mon, 26 Sep 2011 12:25:27 -0400)
From: Richard Gorbutt
Hi all,

I was looking at a project that would create QT movies etc, and noticed in
that EditableMovie has been deprecated since 2011r2, but no indication of
what can replace it.

The docs show this

This class has been *DEPRECATED' since version 2011r2 and should no longer
be used.
Please use '* as a replacement.

Any thoughts or is Quicktime being sidelined?

Cheers, Richard

MBS has a good set of quicktime methods.

EditableMovie has an additional issue which is that it always opens files in Read+Write mode (relevant if you are submitting to the mac-app-store, among other cases)

But I agree, deprecation w/o replacement seems odd.

That is good to know. The MBS plugins for Quicktime are in the radar if I do
this project as I need the grabber stuff.

Isn't QTkit Mac only?

Cheers, Richard

QuickTime is very much being sidelined by Apple, and in fact, didn't
get updated to be 64-bit capable. Apple does provide QTKit, which is
available in 64-bit, but it's very limited compared to the C API and
our API built atop that. Apple new frameworks in Lion (AVFoundation
and CoreMedia) that intends to replace QuickTime and QTKit, but it is
still not a perfect match for our QuickTime plugin. For example, we
expose a lot of QTVr, which intentionally was left out of the newer
frameworks.

So, the decision was made to deprecate all of EditableMovie now
instead of getting to the point where we're building 64-bit
applications and people start freaking out that programs they've spent
their time working hard on won't work in 64-bit.

Not really. MBS functions work directly on Movie class.

Well, Real Studio will probably use the QTKit stuff for the future. You can get that today already in our plugins if you need.

Don't some of those MBS plugins for QT depend on editablemovie etc? (or get
passed that object etc?).

I also posted on the RS forums but no response from anyone RS at all. Looks
like a lot of QT stuff has met the dust with no replacement. Wonder if it's
linked to QT X!

Cheers, Richard
