    THoff,

    It comes up as a codec option under Quicktime export in Procoder Express on my systems(?). Certainly, it only has few encoding settings available and doesn't look good until a high data rate is used.

    Without having QuickTime Pro, you don't get H.264 encoding, PERIOD, end of story -- it's not available in the free version of QuickTime.

    Thanks for the info THoff, and sorry for the delay in replying!

    I guess I'll have to get Quicktime Pro to get access to the 'finer' settings for the H.264 codec to get the results I was expecting.

    started a topic Quicktime / Procoder Express help needed.

    Quicktime / Procoder Express help needed.

    Hello all,

    I occassionally get asked for Quicktime files in H.264 and MPEG4 formats which is fine.

    However, using Procoder Express I never seem to be able to output a MOV file in these formats that can compete in quality and file size with what I can output from Procoder Express using WMV 9.

    Using WMV9 with a datarate of 300kbps and even less using 2 pass encoding, gives me very watchable video at 320x240 (25fps PAL) even blown up to 200% it is quite watchable.

    I seem to have to go to at least 3x or more in datarate to achieve anything near this quality with Quicktime?!

    Am I missing something with these codecs or is it just more Apple...?

    Thanks for any help.

    Simon
