Editorial Reviews Review

There is far more to Apple's QuickTime than a movie that plays on your computer--it is an entire technology whose rich features go largely untapped. In this second edition of QuickTime for the Web, the QuickTime gurus at Apple lay bare the inside tricks, hidden features, and underlying structure of this dynamic media tool.

This book will prove useful to anyone using QuickTime as a presentation tool, regardless of their method of delivery. Although titled QuickTime for the Web, it describes features that go far beyond the Web. The interactive section is the highlight of this book. It describes how to build custom interfaces (skins) for your movie, how to connect your movie or interface elements to the Web, how to add and edit an array of tracks such as text and Flash tracks, and how to add interactive audio.

However, this is not the only chapter worth reading--far from it. From the very beginning, each and every page offers some tip or describes a feature that one could learn to make use of. Need to know how to convert PowerPoint presentations into interactive QuickTime movies? Page 241. Need the HTML code to detect QuickTime before loading a movie? Page 113. Don't know the difference between streaming and nonstreaming? There's a chapter devoted to mixing the two and demonstrating how they can each be used to their fullest.

QuickTime has much to offer and many of the underlying features are very easy to use. This is an important and informative book, and an invaluable reference for anyone who works seriously with QuickTime and uses it as a presentation tool. --Mike Caputo

From Library Journal

This comprehensive resource covers every aspect of working with QuickTime, from creating and posting simple movies to making virtual reality panoramas and interactive 3-D object movies. The accompanying CD includes several multimedia trials as well as the full version of QuickTime Pro 5 (the free, downloadable Player lacks Pro's editing features); it also uses QuickTime tools to demonstrate book examples. Larger public and college libraries supporting multimedia programs should purchase even if they own the first edition because QuickTime 5's new features are discussed.

This book is excellent. Not only is it fun to read but also very informative. You can read it from front to back and you can use it as a reference manual. What graphics mode for tracks does what? You'll find it! What compression scheme do I need for what purpose? You'll find it! How do I change the movie controller? Why do I have to change it sometimes? Just look it up! Did you ever wanted to know how the people from Apple make movie trailers?
The CD contains an audio tour, many examples, and software (QuickTime 5 Pro, full versions and demo versions of various tools) for Windows and Macintosh computers.

Steve Gulie does it again. It is rare to read a technical book that makes you laugh out loud, but Steve leavens the clearly-explained information about the intricacies of QuickTime and Web browers with wit and humour.
This second edition includes QT 5 Pro Keys for Windows and Macintosh - separately these alone would cost nearly (...), so the book is a bargain too.
Full disclosure - I am an engineer on the QuickTime team, know the author, and proof-read this book. I know that it is accurate and helpful, and that it will explain techniques that would take you a long time tolearn on your own.

This is a very complete book with everything you need to know about Quicktime. It starts pretty slowly with the basics, and ends up going into quite technical stuff. I am working alot with video editing, and its really great finding out how to make the best quicktime videos of my stuff and put it on the web (it covers info on how Apple is making their insanly great looking trailers). The book is very up-to-date and covers Quicktime 5.0.2, and Sorenson3 codec.

You get a free version on the CD of Quicktime 5.02 PRO which costs 30 dollars alone. A great bargain.
