Should I buy QuickTime 6 Pro?
QuickTime Pro 6 is not a free upgrade, nor does it currently offer complete integration with existing software, such as Final Cut Pro. It will also be some time before most end users update their player software to version 6. For the immediate future, therefore, encoders will still have to produce QuickTime 5 compliant files along with any QT6/MPEG-4 content. Unless you must upgrade immediately, it seems wiser to wait for these issues to be resolved before taking the plunge. QuickTime 6’s MPEG-4 format is, however, one of the most affordable, high-quality codecs available, producing results well on a par with more expensive codecs such as Sorenson Video 3 Pro.
