Can’t Make Photo-JPEG or Motion-JPEG QuickTimes? This May be the Reason. March 13, 2013
If you are new to the stock footage business and are having problems rendering Photo-JPEG QuickTime files for submission, you may be a victim of this dreaded buried unchecked check box.
You see, the Photo- and Motion-JPEG codecs are very old (in relative computer terms). And for some reason, Apple decided to “disable” their functionality by default in new QuickTime installs. But don’t fret, you can get them back simply by enabling them in the QuickTime control panel (see insert for the Windows 7 control panel version).
Once you check that little box in the Advanced tab, you’ll then see both Photo- and Motion-JPEG options in your render settings in all your video applications that support QuickTime.
