QuickTime :: Multiple Audio Sources For Movie Recording?

Feb 5, 2012

I want to record a Quicktime movie using iSight as the video input, external audio (guitar) via a Focusrite Saffire LE (1874) audio interface and internal audio (a backing track) from either iTunes, Logic 9 or MainStage 2 (I don't care which), so I can record myself playing and then send the video to another guitarist via Dropbox or similar.

MacBook Pro :: QuickTime - Bad Recording Audio Quality

Jun 25, 2014

I am using QuickTime to record audios of myself talking in a quiet room, using the built-in microphone, but I just found that the audio quality is poor, even less than the voice memos I recorded on my iPod touch 4 (I said the same thing in the same room). Although I can hear my every words, I think it is near the sound quality of talking on telephone; the voice is not clear and pure.

I have the model of early 2011 MacBook Pro, with the newest OS X Mountain Lion.

Applications :: Quicktime Pro - Full Screen Movie Spanning Multiple Monitors?

Sep 18, 2006

I'm looking to build a kind of video wall. I have 4 LCD monitors which I've hooked up to a Mac pro to get a resolution of 3840x2104 on screen. Then I made an After Effects movie of a white box bouncing around the screen rendered at 3840x2104. What I'd like to be able to do is play the movie full screen and have it actually fill all four screens, but when I do Cmd+F and make it "full-screen", Quicktime is insistent on just filling one of my screens. I can expand the window (in non-full screen mode) to fill all four monitors, but then I have borders everwhere which I don't want (IE, the OS X menu bar and the "play" buttons at the bottom, etc). Quicktime has full screen settings which allow you to choose which monitor you'd like to fill, but (from what I can tell) there's no way to have it use more than one monitor. Does anyone know of a way I can play the movie across all four screens? I thought maybe another media player would offer this functionality, but I tried using VLC and it didn't seem to. Are there any other third party packages supporting H.264 that might offer this? Is there some plugin or method for Quicktime to beat it into submission?

OS X :: Time Machine Backup Two Drives To Multiple Sources

Nov 19, 2009

Here is what I want to achieve: I have my MBP with a 500GB hard drive that I want backed up to an external 750GB drive (A). Then I have an external 1TB drive (B) that I also wanted backed up to an external 1TB drive (C).
Internal -> drive A
Drive B -> drive C

Can Time Machine do this all for me or am I going to need a 3rd-party app to help. I know I can easily use TM for doing one of the backups, but will it handle both? If not, what's a good 3rd-party app that will help me accomplish this?

QuickTime :: Error -2002: A Bad Public Movie Atom Was Found In The Movie

Jun 11, 2012

Okay, so I am here at work, and have spent the last 4-5 hours trying to resolve this issue, and cannot find any working solutions for it on the internet. We have .3gp recordings. All of a sudden, we started getting this error on some of our computers.  Example: I want to play test.3gp; I try to open test.3gp in QuickTime, and I get an error that reads... 

"Error -2002: A bad public movie atom was found in the movie:test.3gp" But when I go to play test2.3gp, it plays fine. This issue varies from computer to computer. I get this error on all three of my machines. 2 Windows 7 64bit, and 1 Windows 7 32bit. My colleague and boss can play test.3gp fine through QuickTime on their computers. One is Windows 7 64bit the other is 32bit. 

Anyone know some causes of this and hopefully a way to solve it? I tried cleaning up registry errors, running as administrator, updating, reinstalling... Nothing is working.

QuickTime :: Can't Zoom In While Screen Recording

Jul 3, 2012

I want to make training videos. I still can zoom in while doing screen recording with Quicktime in my MacBookPro Lion. But when I played back, there's no zoom in in the movies. 

I've tried to set the things in Universal Access-seeing-options- and tick 'use scrool keys modifier....' but still didn't work. Restarted the mbp, still didn't work.

QuickTime :: Screen Recording Stuck On Finishing?

Feb 19, 2012

I was making a screen recording for a video tutorial and when I finished, it stuck itself on "finishing." I haven't been able to force quit it in the dock or in Activity Monitor. I cannot shut my computer off or restart it. I have a 21.5' iMac running Mac OS X Lion version 10.7.3. My processor is 2.5 GHz Intel Core i5. I have 4GB 1333 MHz DDR3 memory. Here is a screenshot.

OS X :: Recording Audio On Mac - No Sound

Apr 5, 2010

I tried to record some audio (voice) with garageband earlier this day and it didn't work! I have a built in microphone that is working fine, it tested it (mac OS X, version 10.5.8) and my input volume level is turned up (system preferences). I tried to record with isight (imovie) and can record a video, but no sound eighter. I've been able to record in the past with garageband so i haven't a single clue what happened.

OS X :: QuickTime Screen Recording Stopped (IChat Conversation)

May 24, 2010

I have the aluminum unibody macbook from I think 2008 with the 2.0 ghz and 2 gigs of ram. I was on iChat with a friend the other day and wanted to record our conversation. So I fired up QuickTime X and started the screen recording function. When we were finished (a good 15 mins later) I pressed stop on the screen recording and everything seemed fine. I went back today to make notes and it only recorded 6 minutes of our conversation!! My computer was really working hard on the fan keeping it cool from all the cpu usage but I thought everything was fine. Could it have overheated and caused QuickTime to stop recording? Or another explanation?

Applications :: Recording With QuickTime - Continuous Buzzing Noise?

May 16, 2009

I've been trying to audio record my piano playing with my unibody Macbook using Quicktime Pro 7. The recording is absolutely terrible--there is so much buzz, as if the microphone is being held right next to the back of the piano. In truth, I set my laptop about ten metres from the piano. The buzzing continues. It's as if the equalizer settings are set to max.

OS X :: Snow Leopard Offer Screen Recording Via QuickTime X Player

Apr 24, 2009

With the introduction of Snow Leopard, QuickTime Player will assume more of a utilitarian role, with screen recording features reportedly joining the software's exiting repertoire of basic audio and video capture capabilities. People familiar with the latest betas of Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard have been reporting over the past several weeks the addition of a 'Screen recording' option in the File menu of the new Quick Time X Player due to ship with the OS overhaul later this summer.

Similar in many ways to a feature long offered by Ambrosia Software through its Snapz Pro X utility, the option will allow users to capture in motion video their Mac's screen -- essentially video screenshots. Such a feature will be particularly useful for software developers and educators, as it will simplify the process of creating video tutorials, software demonstrations, and anything else best captured in live motion as opposed to still shots.

When selecting the screen recording option under recent pre-release distributions of Snow Leopard, a recording interface prompts the user to begin a video capture then disappears. A small footprint controller in the upper-right hand side of the Mac OS X menubar can be used to end the video capture. While its unclear if the feature is fully functional in build 10A335 released Thursday, it wasn't in earlier builds, often creating an empty .mov file, those familiar with the software say. An artist's mockup of the minimal QuickTime X Player window interface with the "trim" tools overlay.

QuickTime X -- along with the minimal-interfaced QuickTime X Player (renditions) -- leverages media technology pioneered by Apple for the iPhone OS. When it makes its debut on the Mac with Snow Leopard, it'll offer optimize support for modern audio and video formats resulting in extremely efficient media playback, the company has said.

QuickTime :: Why Is There Audio But No Video With Quicktime Player

Feb 2, 2012

I have had this problem quite a while now:When I open an .avi file it automatically opens using QuickTime. I'd like that because it's the best player for Apple.The problem is however that I can only hear the sound, there's no image/video.I use 10.7.2. (now updating to 10.7.3), but it already did this before I had OSX Lion installed.If I search for new updates it doesn't come up with an update for QuickTime.Any other player works (although VLC's the only one I tried so far).

IMac :: ISight Audio Recording Only Through One Speaker

Jul 8, 2010

I am running leopard on an iMac 24" and am having trouble getting my iSight camera to record audio on 2 channels. I have changed my audio input to line in (inbuilt input) in order to record using a better microphone than the inbuilt one in my iMac, and am running a Shure microphone into the input in the back of my iMac via XLR to 1/4" stereo jack cable and then through a 1/4" to 1/8" stereo jack adapter. However when recording video in Photo Booth, iMovie etc. the audio only plays back out of the left speaker. It is not a problem with the output because all of my other sounds (music from itunes for example) play fine out of both left and right speakers. I believe I have run everything into the computer just fine and I can get 2 channels when recording like this in Garageband and Logic.

MacBook Pro :: Make Hum Softer While Audio Recording?

Jul 13, 2010

My macbook pro runs louder than my now dead powerbook G4 used to. I'm wondering if there is a way to make the hum softer when I'm doing audio recording? I know it's bad to put something cushy underneath since it will heat up the machine, but I've experimented with that kind of thing, and it does lessen the hum. Are there different feet I can attach? I've searched the forums and I'm surprised other people haven't written about this.

Intel Mac :: Crackling When Recording Or Playing Audio

Mar 14, 2012

I'm having a very annoying problem, and I simply can't figure it out. Recently I updated my OS from Leopard to Snow Leopard, because I had some problems with the firewire connection to my fireface 400 sound card. So far this seems to have solved the problem, and for a couple of weeks I was actually able to get some work done. Now a new problem has occured: 

When I input audio (i.e. trying to record something) I get some really weird crackling noises. It's very different how loud they are. Mostly they are at the same volume as the instrument I'm recording, and normally it sounds very digital. I've tried hooking a presonus firebox up to my mac, which gave me the exact same problems, so it can't be the fireface that's the problem. The problem is not something that occurs, when recording, but simply when sending audio into the mac. There are absolutely no problems when playing back files from iTunes and Logic.  

I've tried repairing disk permissions, and ran all the  tests in techtool pro, which all turned out fine, so I'm having a hard time believing that it's a hardware issue even though I've had problems with the firewire connection earlier.  
Though it does not sound like clipping, the problem seems to  occur more rarely, when playing soft, which just makes it even more weird. 

Model Name:iMac  Model Identifier:iMac9,1  Processor Name:Intel Core 2 Duo  Processor Speed:2,66 GHz  Number Of Processors:1  Total Number Of Cores:2  L2 Cache:6 MB  Memory:4 GB  Bus Speed:1,07 GHz  Boot ROM Version:IM91.008D.B08  SMC Version (system):1.45f0 

Everything is up to date, it just seems like something has been messed up somewhere inside the mac. Next step is to wipe the hard disc, but I'd rather not do that.

IMac PPC :: Choosing Bit Depth While Recording Audio?

Apr 5, 2012

Do you know of any simple audio recording app (ie: not a monster audio suite) which takes low CPU usage, and lets you choose the internal bit depth using for audio sampling (ie: sample at PCM16, at PCM24,...)  ?  

Now, in case you need it, the long version of the question: 

I'm digitizing my huge collection of audio tapes, with my G5 iMac (OSX 10.4). The quality of the recordings is somewhat low, so I don't need a high-end audio card, and I believe the builtin audio card of this G5 is more than adequate for this task (Burr Brown PCM3052 with support for PCM16, PCM24, and AC3 16). 

I've done my first tests with the just-released new version of Audacity (2.0.0), which is compatible with 10.4 and higher, so I'm very happy to be able to install a brand-new application in 10.4. 

Audacity works fine, but has a couple of issues: 

First, you can choose the audio track bit depth, but not the internal bit depth at which you're sampling. In other words, I'd expect to use some selector to choose from PCM16 or PCM24 recording, which is what this iMac seems to support. However, I can only choose the storage bit depth, not the sampling bit depth. I suppose Audacity is recording at PCM24, but I've no way to test this. 

Second, it takes about 40% CPU usage while recording (yes, I disabled the realtime graphics update of Audacity... if I don't disable it, usage becomes 60% or higher). 

I tried Audio Hijack Pro (well, the last version supporting 10.4), and it won't let me choose the sampling depth either.

Mac Mini :: Multiple Audio Outputs - HDMI & Audio Out?

Aug 4, 2010

With the new Mac Mini models, you can have audio out via HDMI or the line out. I am thinking to hook the mini up to an LCD TV/monitor via HDMI (sound on the monitor) and also to my other TV/sound system via the mini DP and audio out.

I assume when the mini turns on it'll activate both displays (if they are turned on), and from what I understand you can have two displays running. I'd only want one at a time so I'd have the other display switched off. But can the mini output audio to either both, or whichever system I am using? I've read a lot of posts but can't find a definite answer. I only want audio (and video for that matter, but can turn off other screen) to one TV at a time, but do I have to go into the OS audio settings each time I want to swap between the two?

I'm also thinking of using Plex and keeping it open at all times, just sleeping the mini when not in use. Can the mini only output to one source, requiring manual switching to the other (i.e. going from HDMI to audio out)?
