jit.qt.movie export issue
I’m having two separate issues with jit.qt.movie:
1. The export message does not appear to be working regardless of the selected exporter (though it will display a message indicating a successful export such as "export test.mp4 1"). I initially thought it was writing the files somewhere else, but I’ve searched and they are nowhere to be found.
2. I am interested in using the MPEG-4 exporter (and have successfully done so in the past), however when I send the "exportsettings" message, it opens a dialogue for "QuickTime Media Link Settings", not the MPEG-4 dialogue I’m used to.
The patch I’m including is a simplified version that hopefully can either recreate the error or point things in the right direction. The odd thing is this was all working just fine yesterday. I even went so far as to uninstall/reinstall both Max 5 and Max 6 on my laptop as well as trying it out on an imac I have access to, but unfortunately no luck. It may be worth noting that I did not encounter the second problem on the imac.
My laptop is a MBP running OSX 10.8.2 and Max 6.0.8 (also Max 5.1.9), the iMac is running OSX 10.6.8 and 6.0.2.

May have resolved this on my own though I don’t fully understand what/why it happened. For the first issue, apparently Max did not like me trying to export audio only using either the a. MPEG-4 exporter b. my particular video clip (approx. 39 MB) or a combination thereof. I exported the audio only using QT Pro 7 (same exporter so not sure why this was problematic), read the audio only mp4 back into my max patch and the export messages resumed exporting files. For the second issue, there may be something going on with the makeMenu patcher, it doesn’t appear to always output the correct corresponding number for the list. If I grab the attribute from jit.qt.movie list and use the attrui, this seems to work consistently, though there aren’t corresponding names so I just had to figure out that "20" is MPEG-4.
