As a side note Topper, while it was cute for a while, the word "Linky" was ONLY cute when Lori used it, and even that got old real quick - like, a LONG time ago. In the future, grow some balls and come up with a term of your own if you don't want to call it a link. <br><br><br><br>CreativeGuy: For your "fix" of design software tips, tricks & commentary.

1. Why isn't QuickTime 7 Pro a 64-bit application?<br>2. I sometimes use Blackmagic DV10 codec (and other lossless codecs) which can exhaust ram in a hurry. <br>Why then is it irrational to expect QuickTime 7 Pro to be a 64-bit application?<br>3. Would QuickTime 7 Pro be faster as a 64-bit program with less than 4 GB of memory?<br>4. For an application to take advantage of 64-bit computing, do you have to have more than 4 GB of memory?<br><br>I did not spend thousands of dollars on a 64-bit computer and a 64-bit operating system for bells and whistles. I am looking for speed, pure, unadulterated speed.<br><br><br>
I am not a happy camper.<br>I spent big money hoping to get a speedier computer but I keep getting disappointed.<br>DP 2.0 Ghz PowerMac<br>AtI X800 Xt video card which works well with games but very disappointing when it comes to video encoding.<br>Final Cut Pro HD and Combustion.<br>2.5 GB of RAM.<br>Tiger<br><br>You would think the above would be enough but no, of course not.<br>I guess I am expected to spend a few thousand dollars more on more ram and video editing program updates.<br>Many people don't have cars that cost that much.<br><br>
Why didn't you wait and spend the money on the equipment until you could actually see that it delivered what you wanted? I think there's an old saying that you never buy the 1st generation of any computer. Let them work the bugs out first. Don't be the guinea pig. In your case, you bought a computer that supports 64 bit applications, but you didn't wait for the 64 bit applications to appear. I feel sorry for you, but I'd have a hard time complaining if I was in your shoes given the choices you made.<br><br>
