I’m trying to export a movie using the h264 codec. I have quicktime 7pro
installed and jit.qt.record reports h264 in its list of available codecs,
but when I try to record a movie, nothing is written to my harddisk. Is this
codec currently mac only or am I missing something? Thanks.
Currently we don’t support the hooks for multiframe/multipass encoding with jit.qt.record (which is really the only way H.264 gets
to be markedly smaller). So it might be dependent on the settings for
H.264 (every frame should be keyframe, no multipass). I thought that
this was working (at least on Mac), though I could be mistaken.
Try jit.qt.movie’s export fulldialog, and let us know if that works
for H.264. If so, I would suggest you record to a relatively high
quality file (e.g. photo jpeg), and then after completed open in
jit.qt.movie and export as H.264 with any appropriate options set.
This should be relatively automatable. Otherwise you’ll need to find
some other solution.
