1510 - Way to go, Apple.

QuickTime Player has had the ability to load a sequence of images and create a movie from them for years.

Until now, that is. They ripped that out of QuickTime Player X. Smooth move, Ex-Lax.

So I get to struggle with getting LAME and FFmpeg downloaded, built, and installed...

Thanks! I thought QuickTime Player X did away with the old one.

I've already gotten FFmpeg installed by now, but QT 7 is a lot easier to deal with.

FWIW, if you haven't installed QT7, the easiest way is to try and open a file from the /System/Library/Compositions folder (or maybe /Library/Compositions), any qtz file. It will fail to open in QT X and prompt you to install QT 7.

Looks like someone beat me too it, but yea QuickTime Player X is nothing more than a streamlined player now. If you don't have the Quicktime 7 on your disk somewhere already, you can load it from your Snow Leopard install disk.
