The rumours of my death are ....?

I found the following post dated 3 May by Christopher Young on the forum:

"[i]As you well know I posted some of the publicity shots for the New Vegas 14 release which got released to the dealers. Dealers also received pricing information for Vegas 14. From what I understand dealers were told to hold off just days before the release which I was informed was supposed to be April 5th from memory. In other words I still believe Vegas 14 will happen.

Re the unexpected delays. I am hearing similar stories and that the sudden holdup might have something to do with the QuickTime issue and having to go back into coding to enable support of .MOV files without having to rely on Apple's 32-bit QuickTime support. If that's the case I am more than happy to wait. Time will tell I guess![i]"

He seems to knopw something we don't but, if he's right, its splendid news.

I do believe there is a new release of Vegas Pro and other software waiting to be released, but from who????

I like that. I had to fight that scenario many times downloading Quicktime updates.

A QT workaround will be interesting. Pro Res is a licensed codec from Apple and DNXhd is from Avid. I don't know if Sony can make their own.

you know they are going to darken the interface, stretch rendering to 8K, add one new codec, break GoPro again, call it 14 and sell it for ......$19.95 a month! :D

"News" or "Rumor"?

Would not Quicktime Alternative do the job without further development?

QuickTime codec encode/decode can be handled by any number of file libraries out there. This has been done for years and particularly outside US borders it is a de-facto workflow in several apps.

It is not anything but licensing issues that get in the way. For example note how Avid licensed it for use stateside. The license has a price, an especially important fact of any deployment.

Quicktime Alternative and Lite are stripped down versions of Quicktime. From Wikipedia:

QuickTime Alternative is a codec package for Microsoft Windows for playing QuickTime media, normally only playable by the official QuickTime software distribution from Apple Inc. Development has now ceased and the version of the QuickTime codec now lags behind that released by Apple.

QuickTime Alternative consists of codec libraries extracted from the official Apple distribution.

QT Lite is a stripped-down version of QuickTime Alternative that contains only the base components, and does not install Media Player Classic
